Computer Science

BSc (Hons)

Computer Science Overview

Put industry experience and technical skills at the heart of your learning by studying computer science. Our Computer Science degree will help you to develop academically, professionally and personally.

We want to inspire and develop the next generation of software developers, designers, testers, analysts and project managers through our innovative approach. Our course has been designed in collaboration with the tech industry in Leeds, teaching you the skills and attributes that employers told us they wanted and with assessment designed to replicate industry practices.

Our course will help you develop technical skills but, more importantly, it will help you understand how to use and apply them to solve real-world problems. You will work with employers throughout your degree, gaining hands-on experience through professional work placements and developing your skills on live employer challenges and projects.

“There is a good mix between practical elements and lectures. I also find that the lecturers are very helpful and make themselves available if you’re struggling.”
