    Course Summary

    Canterbury Christ Church University offers a very practically oriented BSc degree in Computer Science. It is designed specifically to improve your employability, and to allow you to found a rewarding career in one of the UK’s fastest growing fields. As more and more companies make us of e-commerce, m-commerce, big data and automation, the demand for skilled CS graduates continues to skyrocket. As a result, few graduates spend long looking for suitable work in their area of special skill or interest.

    You’ll study both abstract theory and hands-on analytical and design skills. You’ll learn to combine the two to find the technical solutions businesses of all types need to overcome problems and make full use of opportunities as they arise. In addition to CS basics such as computational mathematics, programming languages and internet applications, you’ll study technical research methods, multi-tasking techniques and even high end techniques such as applied artificial intelligence.

    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.
