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.
