What our students say

Nicolae Caprarescu, BSc Computer Science

'I believe that the course provides me with a very good overview of Computer Science as a discipline, but also goes into the appropriate level of detail within the individual modules. The modules combine both theoretical and practical sessions, making sure that you develop an excellent understanding of the topic.'

David Allardyce, BSc Computer Science

'The best thing about studying Computer Science is the involvement the School has had in computing history over the last fifty years, and the positive effects this has on the quality of teaching.'
