Course summary

The Foundation Degree in Computing will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills required for success in current and future employment or for progression to an undergraduate Honours degree. The College setting environment and the small size cohort allow teachers to cater for the individual requirements of each student and provide extra support if needed. The College has strong links with companies that will provide you with a variety range of work placement opportunities. They are there to enable you to make informed decisions about your studies and to help you deal with any difficulties that may arise. On successful completion of the Foundation Degree, students may progress to the BSc (Hons) Computer Science or BSc (Hons) Software Development for Business top-up degree, both of which are planned for delivery at the College from September 2020. Many of the College's current Applied Computing students have chosen to progress onto the BSc Hons degree ‘top-up’ year at Wiltshire College in order to further develops their skills within the industry. Students who have completed their studies in Applied Computing have commonly progressed into careers as I.T. professionals, web designers, support technicians and software developers. Some have gone on to specialise in ICT related studies at a postgraduate level at other universities such as the University of the West of England and Stafford University.
