Rhagarweiniad i’r Cwrs

Our aim is simple – we want to help you become a computer professional with the ability to keep yourself up-to-date with the rapid pace of developments in the field of computer science. After graduation with one of our computing degrees you should be able to obtain a good job in the computing industry in the UK or indeed with any of the international computing firms; or take up study for a higher degree such as a Masters Degree or PhD (both offered at Bangor).

The BSc Computer Science with Foundation Year programme combines a foundation year with the three year Honours Degree to create an integrated four year programme. The programme provides an excellent introduction to studying a science subject at university and will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to study at degree-level.  The with Foundation Year programme is ideal for applicants who do not quite meet the entry requirements for the three year degree or who would benefit from further a further year’s study in relation to studying a science subject.

Successful completion of the Foundation Year will see you progress to Year 1 of the Computer Science programme.

As a Bangor University student, you will be taught by committed and enthusiastic staff and will have access to the University’s extensive student support network and facilities.

The application form is found on the UCAS website, under ‘Apply’.

When to Apply

We advise you to apply as early as you can as we will start considering applications and making offers straight away. The initial UCAS deadline for UK and EU students is 15 January, however we welcome applications after this date. Those received between 15 January and 30 June will continue to be forwarded to universities by UCAS and will receive consideration where places are still available.
