    Course Content

    In your first year you will gain a foundational knowledge in all areas of the subject, including programming, computer architecture, software system design and usability testing. You’ll also work on professional skills and relevant mathematics. When you first arrive, you will be involved in a group project as a part of our ‘activity led learning’ program. This gives a sociable and fun introduction to most aspects of the subject and helps all our students get to know the staff and each other.

    By the end of the second year, you should have learned to write and test programs, work in a development team on a real world project, understand and build computer and network systems and have a working knowledge of vital aspects of computer industry ethics and law. In the final year, these skills are combined with an individual project. This normally involves building an original computer system, which will solve one of a range of challenging problems suggested by an expert in the relevant field. We introduce you to the study of the limits of computation, techniques for analysing and solving more complex problems and large scale software systems development. Additionally you have the option to study advanced topics in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, concurrent and real time systems and the development of enterprise systems and web services.

    This material is learned through a range of creatively designed tasks, projects, lectures and tutorials. We build our own, ground-breaking educational software at Coventry University and use it to teach programming, theoretical computer science and parallel processing.


    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.
