The ‘Year in Computing’ is a self-contained year of study offered by the School of Computing to students from any other School in the University*.
Applications for September 2018 are now open and need to be received by 16 February.
Students who successfully complete the year graduate with their original degree title plus ‘with a Year in Computing’.
The Year in Computing will especially be of interest to you if;
- you are interested in studying computing AND their current degree,
- you would like to get prepared for a career in tech,
- you are interested in exploring the frontiers of their subject and computing,
- you want to learn how to be creative with computing.
The innovative Year in Computing programme has been awarded a University teaching prize. Programme director Ian Utting said: ‘The programme exemplifies the University’s aims to allow students to broaden their programmes in a flexible way. It promotes links between different areas of study and allows students with broad interests and ambitions to realise them. It also provides work-related skills to support students in their future study, research or careers and this aligns strongly with the government’s UK Digital Strategy’.
*with the exception of students from the School of Computing and School of Psychology.
