Computing Science with a Foundation Year

If you’re passionate about a computing degree, but don’t have the academic qualifications to start immediately, this course is designed for you. We welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds. You might have A levels, Access, BTEC, or professional qualifications – or a variety of equivalent alternatives. Maybe you’ve got the right subjects, but didn’t get the grades – or perhaps you’ve got work experience rather than formal qualifications. It all counts. On the BSc Computing Science with a Foundation Year you will follow the same pattern as Computer Science but do a foundation year first to equip you with the computing and maths expertise you’ll need to succeed in subsequent years. Once you’ve completed your foundation year, depending on your grades, you can progress to any of the undergraduate degree courses within UEA’s School of Computing Sciences. Studying with us means that you will benefit from our research-led approach to teaching and our fantastic facilities, ensuring that you will learn in the most up-to-date environment. During your foundation year, you will have an average of 15 hours of contact time per week with teaching staff through lectures, laboratory sessions and seminars – though this may vary depending on your module choices. Additionally, you will spend around 25 hours a week studying independently and working on coursework assignments and projects. **Course Structure** Your foundation year will give you an important grounding in computing, programming and essential mathematics before you move on to the rest of your degree. By the end of this year you will: • Understand the fundamentals of computing • Be able to program in a high-level language • Feel confident in mathematics for computing science • Understand the essentials of computing for business You can then move on to the three-year BSc in Computing Science course, where you will master the basics degree programme you’ll start by mastering the core material underpinning computer science. All of our computer science courses follow an identical structure in the first two years. This means that you can easily transfer onto the year abroad, year in industry, or with education programmes. Alternatively you could choose follow your Foundation Year with one of the School of Computing’s other degrees. For the years of study beyond the Foundation Year, please see the course pages specific to those degree programmes. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
