The programme aims to develop knowledge, technical skills and self-directed learning skills in computing, especially in areas affected by rapidly changing information technology. Final-year students carry out a complex real-world computing project.
Modern computing and information system skills often become obsolete as new technology is developed. Therefore the programme strikes a balance between learning current skills, which are important in the marketplace, and emphasising the underlying theories, which last longer and which provide a sound basis for developing new skills, techniques and technologies, and even new theories. The social and organisational impacts of information technology are also included.
Graduates of our Computing/IT/Web Development Foundation Degr- ee can gain this BSc with two years of further study.

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests. If you don’t meet the minimum IELTS requirement, we offer pre-sessional English courses, foundation programmes and language support services to help you improve your English language skills and get your place at Birkbeck.
You may enter the BSc Computing programme in Year 3 if you have successfully completed Birkbeck's Foundation Degree in Information Technology, or if you provide documentary evidence of completing an equivalent programme at HND level or above at another institution (this should include web technologies, software development and 'hands-on' computer programming).
