What A level grades are typically required to get into a good UK university to study computer science?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hello Melanie,

Please use the Course Chooser for a list of all Computer Science undergraduate degree courses:


The list is in rank order according to our league table for computer science with the top university list first.

Click on a few courses to check the entry requirements for individual courses.

I notice that some universities such as the University of Manchester offer a three year BSc and a four year MEng. The emphasis will be slightly different in the content of these courses and so you might expect entry requirements to differ. Click through to check each course and follow up by looking at the information on university websites to discover which course suits you best or most appeals.

I hope this helps!
