Course summary

Open to all students, our BSc Computer Science (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. Our compulsory English language and academic skills module supplements your academic subjects. Ranked among the top Computer Science (and Information Systems) departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017), our broad BSc Computer Science gives you a firm foundation in the essential skills and knowledge required by the computer industries. You study a wide range of modules, giving you great choice. Information systems make businesses run properly. Computer games create imaginary worlds. Simulation enables you to understand how things, people and countries behave. Social media, face recognition, website design, cloud computing, network security, robotics – all of these are computing. This degree is accredited by both the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the British Computer Society (BCS). These accreditations are increasingly sought by employers, and provide the first stage towards eventual professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
