    Course Summary

    The University of Exeter’s Computer Science BSc program is an honours degree which both teaches you how computer software and hardware works and lets you explore the industrial, scientific and even social ramifications of this technology and the advances it has allowed.

    Students will develop the relevant mathematical skills as well as building a practical understanding of the specification, design and real world implementation of advanced computer systems. In addition to general technical confidence, you’ll gain the problem-solving skills you need to work closely with computers in the industrial, commercial, educational and science fields.

    During the course of your education, you will work with organisations like IBM, NATS, Motorola and the Met Office, gaining not just important experience but vital industry and public sector contacts.

    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.

    Course Outline

    Year 1:

    Year one is of course a foundational year. You’ll learn the basics of computer programming, algorithms and data structure, computer-oriented maths and web development, as well as come to understand the social issues which computers have brought about.

    Year 2:

    In your second year you’ll gain further expertise in the core areas of computer science. You’ll also choose 30 credits of optional modules which should correspond to your intended area of specialty and particular interests.

    Year 3:

    Your last year will see you completing a large individual literature review and project. This will comprise the development of a complex software system for use in a scientific or business context.

    In addition, you can select up to 75 credits of optional modules which will help to further define your educational journey. Many of these will align with your specialty and final project goals, but others can be taken to ensure you have a well-rounded experience and the maximum of transferrable skills.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Exeter believes that every student can excel if given the right support. They have pioneered interactive and computer-based learning, and operate a ‘virtual learning environment’ and extensive student forums.

    The modules themselves are a combination of small group tutorials and seminars, large lectures, individual lab and project work and both independent and group study sessions.

    Assessment is oriented on examination results, coursework marks, and of course the success of your final project.

    Career Possiblities

    All of the University of Exeter’s degree programs teach the kind of management and personal skills that are highly in demand in today’s workplaces. The individual programs are constantly reviewed to ensure that they provide an easy pathway to profitable, fulfilling careers.

    Computer Science graduates in particular are highly sought-after today, and the few graduates who are not working in their chosen field within a few months of graduation are usually pursuing higher degree education.
