Computer Science

Why study Computer Science?

This course will mostly suit students wishing to pursue a career in software engineering and/or games development but will develop a range of skills that are transferable to many other career paths. Students will learn to devise systems and programs for a range of applications. In addition to gaining a strong theoretical knowledge of the science of computing and programming, students will develop their problem-solving skills through tasks that require them to provide real solutions to real problems, such as writing computer games, applications of artificial intelligence or developing mobile apps. Whilst students will obviously develop their Computer Science skills further through studying this course, they will also gain important experience of working independently, planning and managing their time effectively and their written communication skills. Computer Science is an exciting, interesting and highly relevant course for A level students.
