Foundation year students in a tutorial class

If you would like to study Computer Science or Software Engineering but you don’t meet our entry requirements, you may wish to consider applying for our Science and Engineering Foundation Year.

The Science and Engineering Foundation Year will prepare you for degree-level study by improving your knowledge and understanding of maths and physics, as well as the fundamental principles of engineering. 

After successfully completing the foundation year, you are guaranteed to progress onto any of the three year BSc or four year MComp degree courses we offer.
