    The richness of careers in the IT industry means that students are not always clear about which area they wish to specialise in before they join us. Some do not decide until they reach the final year. With this in mind, we have designed this Framework to have a common first year and a second year which is largely common. This design gives you exposure to a variety of modern technologies and techniques, before you make your final decision. The first two years cover those areas we know to be foundational for all professionals in this field, in addition year two enables a measure of specialism. In the final year, you have the opportunity to specialise further or to keep your education broader and more general.

    Computing in Business Week

    Teams of first year computing students take part in BU’s annual Computing in Business event every May as part of their end of year assessment.

    Placement Experience

    You can take any courses in the framework either as a four year sandwich course, with a 40 week industrial placement in the third year, or as a full-time three year course. We strongly encourage school and college leavers to do the placement, it helps in a number of ways for example:

    • It has been shown to improve students' final degree classification. Having a chance to put theory into practice and see how real businesses operate makes a real difference to your outlook.
    • The one year experience greatly improves student employment prospects - because of that real world experience. Some students are offered jobs after they graduate by their placement company. Some companies even help with fees for the final year.
    • It can help with final career choice. For example some students want to be analysts or marketers but after a year in industry they sometimes say that doing it eight hours a day for five days a week has taken the fun out of it. Alternatively people who 'hated' databases sometimes come back from placement saying they really enjoyed doing it on placement and want to specialise in that area.

    However we understand that some people want to complete their degree in three years and we are more than happy to help them achieve their aims.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
