Course summary

**Overview**Learn to program the future and prepare to excel in a range of computing fields, from the information systems of banks and businesses, to the creativity of gaming and web design, to AI, robotics, cloud computing, big data and lots, lots more. If you’re a digital native who lives and breathes computing, but you don’t yet meet the academic requirements of our degree programmes, this course is for you. On your Foundation Year you’ll gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for undergraduate level study, all within a nurturing, supportive environment. Once you’ve successfully completed your Foundation Year, you’ll be able to progress to the BSc Computing Science. Depending on your grades you may also be able to switch to one of our other computing degrees. **About This Course**If you’re passionate about a computing degree, but don’t have the academic qualifications to start immediately, this course is designed for you. We welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds. You might have A levels, Access, BTEC, or professional qualifications – or a variety of equivalent alternatives. Maybe you’ve got the right subjects, but didn’t get the grades – or perhaps you’ve got work experience rather than formal qualifications. It all counts. On the BSc Computing Science with a Foundation Year you will follow the same pattern as Computer Science but do a foundation year first to equip you with the computing and maths expertise you’ll need to succeed in subsequent years. Once you’ve completed your foundation year, depending on your grades, you can progress to any of the undergraduate degree courses within UEA’s School of Computing Sciences. Studying with us means that you will benefit from our research-led approach to teaching and our fantastic facilities, ensuring that you will learn in the most up-to-date environment. During your foundation year, you will have an average of 15 hours of contact time per week with teaching staff through lectures, laboratory sessions and seminars – though this may vary depending on your module choices. Additionally, you will spend around 25 hours a week studying independently and working on coursework assignments and projects. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
