Who is this course for
Your application, especially your personal statement, should demonstrate your enthusiasm for studying your chosen degree. This might include relevant reading, voluntary or work experience, hobbies or other relevant extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.
You will need a strong performance in Mathematics as part of your entry qualifications. We prefer applicants who can demonstrate evidence of logical and analytical thinking such as through the study of decision Mathematics, Computing or science subjects. We prefer applicants who have previously studied Computing, however, you do not need to have done so to be suitable for this course.
We are aware that the context in which you are studying can have an impact on your ability to perform your best in exams and coursework, or limit which subjects or qualifications you are able to study at your school or college. We take this into careful consideration through our contextual admissions process.
What Will I Learn
You’ll gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. In the first year, you’ll learn the basics of computer science, including mathematics and programming skills, followed by more advanced and specialised units in the second and final years. In the second year, you will complete a group project with other students to design and build an interactive application.
In the final year, you will choose optional units alongside an individual project that combines your interests in a specific area of computer science. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field.
Broaden your horizons with a year studying at a university abroad. You’ll experience another culture while studying a course that complements your studies at Bath.
We have links with universities in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, currently including Binghamton University, University of Nebraska, University of Canterbury, TU Vienna and National University Singapore.
