Program description

Computing Foundation Year

Passionate about computing careers, but not quite ready to undertake a full honours degree? Coming to computing with no formal background in the subject? This one-year computing foundation is the ideal way to learn essential programming, web design, networking and security skills before starting a specialist three-year course.

Our computing courses are part of the School of Media Arts and Technology, where there are courses covering every aspect of computing and media technology. On completion of the Foundation Year you will be able to join the first year of a course within the computing area.

You’ll get to grips with the basics of computer programming by taking part in creative and fun practical projects. These will be carried out under the guidance of a teaching team with a wide portfolio of experience and skills.

Admission requirements

This foundation course is ideally suited to students who want to earn a specialist degree in an area of computing, but don’t yet hold the qualifications or experience required to start on the first year of an undergraduate course.

English language requirements

Applicants who do not have English as their first language will be required to demonstrate an approved level of proficiency in the use of the English language. The agreed minimum requirements for this course are:

  • IELTS 5.5 overall with a minimum of 5.0 in each individual component
  • Or equivalent.
