What our students say

Sanne Ablen: BSc Computer Science graduate 2003

'Something that is done really well in the School of Computer Science is the set up of the degree programmes and how well the different subjects fit together. I think the School monitors the modules very well and isn't afraid to change them when necessary. Therefore, in my third year I was also able to take some options in very new areas such as Quantum Computing, and a project in Bioinformatics.'
