Lancaster University's Computer Science - Study Abroad (Hons) is a dynamic discipline with a wide range of applications, and our Study Abroad programme allows you to broaden your academic and cultural horizons in another county. As a result, our graduates are highly sought after in industry.


Key facts

Lancaster University's Computer Science - Study Abroad (Hons) programme is accredited by the British Computing Society (BCS) and the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), and provides you with the knowledge and skills required to become a computing professional. You will learn to work effectively in a professional software and systems development environment.

In the first year, you will receive a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles of the discipline, combined with their modern day application. Throughout your study, you will gain skills and experience from a range of modules, including Software Development, Information Systems, and Digital Systems. Taking a practical approach to education, you are encouraged to build and analyse systems and software, as well as work with end user feedback to refine and adapt solutions.

Your second year will be spent at one of our partner institutions in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia or Asia,  where you will be motivated by topics that become progressively deeper and develop specialised skills. This will provide you with the opportunity to gain valuable experience of a different social and academic environment while broadening your professional network.

Returning to Lancaster for your final year, you will have the opportunity to explore a range of well-constructed and enriching optional modules, as well as undertaking an individual project. In this project you will work closely with one of our academics, allowing you to use and further develop the skills acquired throughout your degree.
