Module 06-18183 (2015)
Computer Science Study Abroad
|Robert Hendley||Semester 1||60 credits|
|Robert Hendley||Semester 2||60 credits|
The module allows the student to complete a year of study related to computer science in an approved institution in another country. Such study may include a component of the language of instruction, where this is not the student's native language. Computer science topics studied will be specified by the Module Coordinator to be appropriate to a second year Computer Science student at the University of Birmingham. Normally, a student studying in his or her native language will be expected to undertake 2/3 of the relevant year in that institution; a student studying in another language will be expected to undertake 1/3 of the relevant year. (These proportions include a substantial allowance made for necessary individual study, e.g. to meet different prerequisites or become proficient in the language of instruction.)
The aims of this module are to:
- allow the student to experience study of Computer Science in another country
On successful completion of this module, the student should be able to:
- Demonstrate appropriate achievement in computer science topics via study in another country
- Discuss aspects of the culture and higher education system of the country of the host institution with particular reference to Computer Science
- Note 1 Only offered if there are students on an a year abroad.
Variable (dependent on host institution)
Sessional: 80% will be based on marks from the host institution, 20% on a report.
Supplementary: Not normally possible.
