About the course
Computer Science plays a vital role in driving the technological advances that we have come to take for granted. Our degree prepares you for the exciting new challenges within this continually evolving industry.
There are five course options available for studying Computer Science at Hull. The foundation year is ideal for students who do not have the academic background required for direct entry on to the full course. The programme offers a three-year study option and three-four year course options. You can choose to boost your employability further through an industrial placement, studying abroad for a year at one of our partner institutions or studying at Masters level in your final year.
We will give you a solid grounding in computer science fundamentals, but you can also specialise in the areas that interest you. We offer modules covering the full range of the discipline, including programming, computational science, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and even in starting your own high-tech business. Our degrees are accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS), meaning you gain full exemption from the BCS’s Professional Examination as well as partial Chartered Engineer accreditation. This is the highest BCS award that undergraduate courses can achieve.
You will be able to benefit from unique CV-boosting activities such as our Rather Useful Seminar series, our 'Three Thing' development competitions and employer engagement opportunities. Our students have had outstanding success in the Microsoft Imagine Cup, a prestigious international competition which showcases student achievement. For five years running we had teams at the UK finals and have seen multiple UK stage wins (in one year we were first, second and third), as well as trips to the world finals staged in locations such as India and South Korea.
