Why we have invited you here today

Why we have invited you here today

  • Because we’d like you to come and study here! You have an excellent:

    previous record

    personal statement


    set of predicted grades

  • we want to give you an opportunity to find out about Computer Science at the University of Southampton

How we differ to other cs se degrees

How we differ to other CS/SE degrees

  • We teach our students to think and do

  • Our students are highly skilled and understand the context and theory behind those skills

  • Our specialist options in year 3&4 are driven by world class research

The degree courses

The Degree Courses

Research led teaching1

Research led teaching

  • We Research and Teach

    • Leaders in research

  • Our Teaching reflects our Research

    • We teach the state of the art

    • Cutting edge trends and technologies

  • You can get involved

    • 3rd year projects

    • 4th year research projects

    • Summer internships (Paid!)

Summer internships

Summer internships?

  • Many people take on a paid job in the summer after year 2 or 3

  • with one of our partners/contacts

  • Or work with ECS on a project!

"Snowflake code-off"

Students have worked in Iceland on climate change projects

Support for ecs students

Support for ECS Students

  • Dedicated Lab Space

  • Support for your own PC

  • Networked rooms in Halls of Residence

  • Free student licenses for key software

    • Including Windows, Office and .NET

  • Personal Tutor and Project Supervisor

  • Extra tutorial support if you get ill and miss material

Admissions process

Admissions Process

  • We select the best candidates from UCAS forms

  • Aim to admit around 100 students

    • Approximately 1000 applications (20% of which are international)

    • Make around 300 offers

    • Trust that slightly better than one in 3 will go CF with us

  • A typical offer for Meng is A*AA (including MathsA)

  • Beng is AAA including A in Maths

Computer Systems lab

  • Using BeagleBone computers

  • Three hands-on labs

An ecs success story

An ECS Success Story

  • Richard Jones developed Audioscrobbler as his third year project

    • Recommended new music based on your listening

    • Thankfully we gave him a good mark for it!

  • Richard moved to London and launched Audioscrobbler as a Web startup. In 2005 Audioscrobbler.com merged with an internet radio station creating Last.fm

  • In 2007 CBS Interactive acquired Last.fm for $280 million

We will help you choose

We will help you choose

  • We understand that choosing a University can be a difficult and daunting task!

    • we are in the top 5 CS in UK so our students are top too!

    • Remember you are choosing a place to both live and study

    • Don’t be afraid to ask questions

Don t take our word for it

Don’t take our word for it

  • Check out the student videos on our website

    • Reflect the reality of studying here
