Overview

From the moment we wake up to the point we fall asleep, Computer Science impacts almost every aspect of modern life. The digital revolution has had a profound influence across the world and continues to redefine how we live, learn and work.

This (Hons) Computer Science with a Foundation Year programme at Swansea University is suitable if you do not have the relevant qualifications to directly start the three-year BSc in Computer Science. Its content will prepare you and enable you to experience other science subjects at Swansea.

If you continue to the full Computer Science degree, it will put you on course for highly specialised and dynamic careers in software engineering, big data and data science, security analysis or emerging technologies.

Over the course of the degree you will learn to identify the correct solutions to problems and measure their efficiency. A range of transferable skills including team-working, communication, presentation and problem-solving will prove vital when it comes to securing employment.
