What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
Compulsory A level subjects AAA or A*AB including A in Mathematics. Desirable A level subjects Preference for applicants with evidence of logical and analytical thinking, such as A levels in Computer Science or other science subjects or the decision mathematics stream within Mathematics A Level. A level subjects that will not be considered in your application A level General Studies will not be considered. We may be unable consider an A level in your own language (unless it is English or Welsh). Alternative A level offer AAB including grade A in Mathematics plus one of the following: grade A in an EPQ grade B in the Welsh Baccalaureate Skills Challenge Certificate grade M1 in Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives Students presenting with one of the above project qualifications should receive both the typical offer and the alternative.
AA in Advanced Highers including Mathematics plus AAAAB in Scottish Highers.
Obtain DDD in the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma (QCF) plus grade A in A level Mathematics. We are able to consider BTEC Level 3 Extended Diplomas (QCF) in Mathematics or Computing related subjects. We prefer you to have also studied A level Mathematics alongside this qualification and encourage you to take this route if it is available. In exceptional circumstances we may be able to consider students with AS level or GCSE level Mathematics: you must have achieved a grade A in GCSE Mathematics and have an excellent academic profile. If you are studying towards a Cambridge Technical Level 3 Extended Diploma or a new specification BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF), please contact us for guidance.
36 points overall and 6, 6, 6 or 7, 6, 5 in three Higher Level subjects including 6 in Mathematics. We have a strong preference for applicants who offer Mathematics at Higher Level, however, we may be able to consider you if you are studying Mathematics at Standard Level. Our offer in this instance would be 7 in the relevant Standard Level in addition to our typical offer.
If your qualifications aren’t listed here, you can use our UCAS points guide of 144 and refer to the university’s website for full details of all entry routes and requirements.

Develop sound theoretical and practical abilities in software design, development and experimentation, to become an innovative computing professional. This course will give you the skills and knowledge necessary to apply valid computer science methods to new and emerging computing problems. These abilities are very highly valued by employers. You’ll gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. The course combines software systems design, software development, interaction design, artificial intelligence, computational mathematics, computer graphics and vision. You’ll also develop the mathematical and programming abilities that underpin these topics. In the first year you’ll learn the basics of computer science followed by more advanced and specialised units in the second and final years. In the second year, you will complete a group project with other students to envision, design and build an interactive application. In the final year, you will choose optional units alongside intensive work on an individual project that combines your interests in computer science with academic expertise in the department. The Master of Computing (MComp) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to and integration with research groups in the Department. Professional recognition/accreditation This course is accredited by EQANIE (European Quality Computer Science Assurance Network for Informatics Education).
