Course summary

This programme is a perfect gateway to studying on one of City’s Computer Science degrees and will suit you if you have an interest in how software technologies are built and work.

Course overview

The Foundation route will allow you to improve your computing skills and acclimatise to University teaching and assessment styles, with a view to joining one of our Computer Science, Games Technology, Cyber Security and Data Science degrees the following year.

A range of Computer Science modules will develop your understanding of the fundamentals, your programming skills and building web applications. Mathematics modules will ensure you have the logical and analytic skills for more advanced theoretical Computer Science topics.

Finally, you will receive training on basic employability and transferable skills.

The Foundation Programme employs continuous assessment based around frequent class tests and group work.

Students can also expect a higher number of contact hours per week (around 14 hours) in the form of teaching and tutorials, than in the subsequent years of our Computer Science degrees where self-study plays a larger part.

Assessment methods

You will be assessed using a variety of methods including examinations, coursework and practical skills.
