Improve your skills with a Year in Computing

Many students are keen to learn the tech skills that will make them stand out to a graduate employer, or simply want to learn more about computing for their own interests.

The School of Computing offers a ‘Year in Computing‘ for all Kent undergraduate students*. This extra year can be taken after stage 2 or the final year of a students’ current degree programme.

The Year in Computing will especially be of interest to you if;

  • you are interested in studying computing AND your current degree,
  • you would like to get prepared for a career in tech,
  • you are interested in exploring the frontiers of your subject and computing,
  • you want to learn how to be creative with computing.

The Year in Computing’s cohort of students have come from a wide range of academic disciplines and have been very positive about learning computing in addition to their original degree.

In anonymous feedback students listed the aspects of the programme they liked, including:

  • when my code actually works
  • the range of different subjects/information behind Computing
    learning different programming languages
  • the photo examples in lectures
  • engaging with my lecturers both in and out of classes
  • I really understand the content and don’t feel stupid for asking questions

Applications are now open. Find out more about the Year in Computing or come along to our information event in January.
