Computing at university level is a creative and wide-ranging subject. It’s about using sound underlying principles and clear logical thinking to design and build systems that really work. A Computing degree gives you the opportunity to learn how modern computer and communication systems work, how they can be made to work better in future, and how they can be used to build the next generation of computing applications.
You will study many topics that are very new to you and for this reason it is a good practice to do a lot of research before you choose the course. The drop-out rate in Computing courses is higher than the average but insufficient prior research is likely to be the main cause.
