    Course Summary

    IT and Computer Science is one of the most sought-after graduate skill sets today because of the sheer number of Information, hardware and software specialists needed by a growing number of industries, professions and business types. Organisations of all kinds are becoming dependent on ‘big data’ and the massive databases and information management systems that make big data applications possible.

    This program prepares students just like you for an exciting career in this rapidly growing discipline – even if you don’t have the specialist training or the Maths or Science A Levels that many other programs demand. By entering into this program at the Foundation level, you’ll gain all the skills and qualifications you need as you go.

    CS graduates can expect to earn anywhere from £26,000 to £35,000 per year, depending on your specialty and industry sector. No matter which path you choose, UWE will prepare you for a great career.
