Choosing A Degree And University For Your Science Career

At the University of Birmingham we recognise that today’s computer scientists are in high demand and have a range of expertise. The University of Glasgow awards c.50 undergraduate Talent Scholarships each academic year to support students who could face financial difficulties in taking up their place to study at the University. Talent Scholarships are available to students entering any of the University’s Colleges. International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of foundation certificates.

We may accept your English language grade from the Norwegian Vitnemål fra den Videregående Skole if you achieved 3 in English. For Medicine country specific requirements, please visit ourApplying to Medicine website. For candidates offering the South Australian Matriculation qualification, a TER of between 90 to 98 is required. Holders of the Malaysian Ministry of Education Matriculation Certificate in Science can be considered for entry to year one of Biosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. We may also accept your English language grade from the German Abitur if you achieved 10 in English (taken as an achievement/main/ intensive course. Please note this is only valid for 2 academic years after qualification. We may accept your English language grade from the French Baccalauréat de l’Enseignement du Second Degré if you achieved 14 or above.

So don’t register on the modules you wish to be considered for RPL in the current study session. During your study period you will undertake formative assessments, which help you to measure your progress but do not count towards your grade, and summative assessments Summative assessments do count towards the final grade. These include a mid-session coursework submission and an unseen written examination at the end of the session. Once you begin a module it is generally expected that you will complete it in the six-month session. Over a 22-week session, a 15 credit module will typically require five to seven hours of work/effort per week, and a 30 credit module will typically require ten to 15 hours of work/effort per week. If you register for support at one of our recognised teaching centres you can attend lectures and benefit from, and receive tutor support.

The flexible approach to learning enables you to fit your studies around your commitments whilst providing the academic rigour and structure of an on-campus programme. You can also choose to register on a specialist award if you want to focus your studies on a particular area of computer science. To specialise, you must take five compulsory specialist modules and an elective from any specialism. During Level 5, you deepen your programming skills to consider software projects and explore specialist topics such as Graphics Programming and Data Science. You can receive local support from a local teaching centre, use the dropdown to find your nearest centre. Develop your skills in computing with a strong programming and mathematics focus.

To aim is to provide you with skills in basic functional programming and experience in integrated deployment of those skills. Studying a science degree opens doors to a wide variety of employment opportunities from clinical science to forensic scientist, to pharmacologist and laboratory technician. Science is the study of the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. For more information on how much it will cost to study with us and the financial support available see our fees and funding information. Please apply for only one Computer Science degree as we are only able to consider one application to this subject area. We invest in your future beyond the end of your degree and studying at the University of Edinburgh will lay the foundations for your future success.
