The Computer Science with Foundation Year programme is perfect if you want a degree in the field, but do not have the standard entry requirements.

The purpose of the extra Foundation year is to prepare you for your Computer Science programme, equipping you with the necessary academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject.

Our course is taught by both leading researchers and industry practitioners who are pushing the boundaries of what is possible in this rapidly changing field, ensuring you are up to date with the latest developments.

You will learn the key subjects of the discipline, including software engineering and programming languages, as well as computer systems, computer architecture and data structures.

In addition you will learn about the impact of technology on individuals, organisations and society. With the option of a year’s work placement in industry and a work-based learning module, you will also have the chance to develop your skills and enhance your CV.
