Computer Science is an exciting and fast-moving field that brings together disciplines including IT, mathematics, engineering and physics.

Computer technologies are integral to modern life, so you’re likely to find your computer science skills in high demand across many different industries. These include schools and universities, IT firms, multinational companies, public sector organisations, cyber security, games development and more.

This course is for students who have a strong interest in IT, Computing, and Computer Science and would like to progress onto a career within this sector.


The majority of the Computer Science lessons will take place in our dedicated computer rooms. A small minority of lessons which are more theory based will take place in classrooms.

Lessons will include a variety of individual and group work.

Support outside lessons is available, both informally and formally and all of the staff in the department are available for support at lunchtime.
