About the courseThe computer science programme at Kingston University is driven by the philosophy of ‘learning through making, we focus strongly on facilitating hands-on experience, student led and owned product portfolios and producing industry-ready graduates. We utilise a range of innovating teaching and learning approaches in our invigorated and modernised computer science programme, combining studio practices, project-based learning through workshops and group work, scalable, context driven lecturing on theoretical concepts to facilitate an informed approach to problem solving. This course assumes no prior knowledge of computer science and offers you the flexibility to pursue specialist areas, the use of guided option routes as pre-shaped trajectories across levels allow students to progressively focus on their chosen career path. The current guided option routes are designed around the most in demand sectors in the industry. They are Software Engineering, User Experience Design, Web and Mobile App Development, Networking and Network Security. We recognise that there are many routes to success at degree level. Our Computing and Mathematics Foundation Year specifically caters for those who lack the traditional entry qualifications to join the first year of a science degree. You are likely to be someone with either non-computing/maths-based qualifications, someone who has tried computing/maths-based subjects but has yet to realise their potential or you are a mature student, with skills and experience from employment, who wants to return to education.
