  • Reflect upon technological advancements and apply expert knowledge to real-life complex computational problems
  • Use originality in the application of knowledge in a professional environment
  • Evaluate and critique methodologies, practices and advancements within the field of computer science
  • Demonstrate self-direction, originality and creativity in tackling and solving practical computer science related problems

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.
