Undergraduate Degrees in Computer Science
At Birmingham's School of Computer Science we offer a range of flexible undergraduate degrees in computer science, software engineering and artificial intelligence.
As one of our undergraduate students, you will benefit from an industry-informed curriculum that is appropriately accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and the Institute of Engineering Technology (IET). You will have the opportunity to develop a high level of practical skills and build specialist knowledge in applied computer science, whilst maintaining the flexibility to follow your interest through the choice of optional modules.
We are eager to receive applications from highly motivated and well-qualified students with diverse academic backgrounds; and especially encourage interest from those with an aptitude for computer science, mathematics and/or physics.
Undergraduate degrees in computer science
- BSc Computer Science
- BSc Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science
- BSc Computer Science with Business Management
- MEng Computer Science and Software Engineering
- MSci Computer Science
All of our undergraduate degree programmes are available with a Year in Industry. This is an excellent opportunity to supplement studies with a year working in industry and many of our students go on to work for their year-out employers after graduating.
Undergraduate degrees in computer science and another subject
Joint honours undergraduate degrees with 'computer science and another subject' are an increasingly popular choice for students who have an interest in more than one discipline.
- BSc Natural Sciences
- BA Computer Studies and an Arts subject
- BSc/MSci Mathematics and Computer Science
- BSc/MSci Pure Mathematics and Computer Science
The Intercalated Year in Computer Science (for existing undergraduate students at Birmingham)
The school also offers an Intercalated Year in Computer Science, which offers students from non-computing disciplines at Birmingham the chance to gain an in-depth knowledge of computing, by 'sandwiching' an additional year of study between the penultimate and final year of their original undergraduate degree.
Undergraduate degrees: Explained
The BSc (Bachelor of Science) and BA (Bachelor of Arts) awards listed above are all three year undergraduate degrees. Most are also available as a four year undergraduate degree with an additional year abroad or year in industry.
The MEng (Master of Engineering) and MSci (Master of Science) awards are four year Masters level undergraduate degrees that provide an alternative to the traditional 'Undergraduate Degree + Masters Degree' route. The benefit of choosing an MEng or MSci degree is that it entitles most students to local authority funding (under the same terms as any other undergraduate degree) for the whole four years, which means that you can gain a Masters level degree at a significantly lower cost to you.
