    Course Summary

    Kingston University’s Computer Science BSc program is designed to be extremely approachable, even to those who didn’t think they had the A Levels to enter into a BSc course or for those who may have been out of formal education for some time. Not only does it begin with the assumption that you will have no formal training in computer science, it includes an optional foundation year which can lower the minimum UCAS Tariff score dramatically. This ensures that nearly any student who wishes to lay the foundation for a successful career in computer science can do so.

    You’ll learn software analysis, design and development, computer hardware architecture, and how to assess the impact of new technologies on economic markets, workplaces and individuals. You’ll also be able to select optional modules in order to build a unique specialty for yourself. This should both mirror your own interests and lay the foundation for your chosen career pathway.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
