Going to University

Introduction

  • By going to university you will become more independent, be able to try new activities and meet lots of new people. You will also be able to develop new skills, and gain confidence. However, you must be prepared to work hard and to manage your own time well.

  • Higher education isn't just for people who do A levels. There are many different types of higher education course, and different methods of study to suit your existing commitments.

  • If you go on to higher education, you could be more employable than people without a higher education qualification, and you might earn more money

Flexibility

Opportunity to specialize

The courses are flexible so that the opportunities exist to change pathways during the first year of the course. The SEVEN applicable pathways for Computing are:

  • Business Computing has two pathways so you can move between

  • Systems

  • Web Design

  • during the first year.

  • You would need to decide on Computer Games & Development from the outset.

  • Applicants should indicate the pathway they wish to pursue.

  • Part time study at any stage is also an option.

  • Computing,

  • Computer Networks Engineering,

  • Computer Systems Engineering,

  • Graphics & Visualisation,

  • Web Technology & Security,

  • Mobile Computing,

  • Software Engineering

Which course?

BSc (Hons), BEng (Hons) or HND

The first year of the course explores the design and operation of computer systems, both hardware and software and covers programming and problem solving, databases, network technology, systems specification, computer systems, web and information technology.

*Degree classification will be based on the final year for HND transfers, whereas classification normally based on year 2 and 3 grades.

BSc & BEng Computing and BSc Business Computing courses are three years and the HND courses two years full-time. Completion of the HND will enable transfer* to the BSc or BEng.

They are integrated and wide ranging courses in which it is possible to specialize in topics such as computer hardware, computer software, computer networks, business computing and the Internet.

The common first years introduce varied aspects of computing, and lay the foundations for whichever specialist pathway is pursued in the second and/or third years.

Entry Requirements

HND/HNC

BSc (Hons) & BEng (Hons)

  • A typical offer is between 260-300 UCAS tariff points.

  • A wide range of qualifications are accepted, usually at least a relevant HNC. For the top-up with direct entry into the final level, students must have a relevant HND or Foundation Degree and are required to demonstrate a suitable profile of achievement.

  • A typical offer is 140-160 UCAS tariff points.

  • In addition to standard entry requirements, applicants will be expected to have achieved GCSE Mathematics (or equivalent) at grade C or above. Previous experience of computing is desirable.

  • We welcome applications from mature students with relevant computing experience.
