The BSc Computer Science with Foundation Year degree is intended for students who do not have the appropriate qualifications to directly start the three-year BSc in Computer Science. The foundation year includes a wide range of relevant content that both prepare students for the BSc in Computer Science, as well as enabling them to experience other subjects in Science at Swansea.
The foundation year will enable you to learn the key scientific, mathematical and engineering concepts that are essential for a future career in Computer Science.
In your first semester, you will learn how to program. You will also study mathematics relevant to Computer Science, and key skills as well as topics from environmental science and physics. In your second semester, you will study more advanced concepts in Computer Science that will give you a broad overview of different aspects of the subject. You will also learn how to analyse and present data, as well as study topics from bioscience and geography.
