Job prospects are high in this course with having placement in the third year but it's not very customisable. I thought I could do my own projects and enjoy all the modules but that happens in the fourth year. You'll HATE information systems but it's only for one year.

Software Engineering, BEng Hons

By On 30th June 18

This course is for anyone that wants to become a programmer/software engineer. You don't need any prior experience in programming at the beginning, the course starts off assuming you know nothing, but don't be fooled! This is university and it quickly steps up the pace so if you dont have any make sure you study hard. Past experience will help later, though you might be a bit bored for the first few weeks as the beginners catch up. Basic IT knowledge is definitely a requirement though I'd expect most people interested in this course would be knowledgeable in this. Assuming you don't though, you'll need to know how to use Microsoft office, file explorer and your internet browser as well as knowing their way around your pc in general. You'll require some knowledge in mathematics, there is a module first year that you need to pass to continue which contains A-level and higher mathematics. Though for the actual programming you won't really utilise mathematics in your first year.

Its been a good course. Some of the module have been shocking particularly as in some of them the tutors tend not to bother with the mark scheme and more follow personal intuition.

Overall the course has taught me a lot but I found that there was a lot of core CS skills that could have been added to the course to improve the skills of the students on it. Great modules on the course have been: Algorithms and Data Structures 1 Algorithms and Data Structures 2 Computer Architecture Introduction to Programming More focus should have been put on: Mathematical skills Software design

My time on my Business with IT course was very interesting but in all honesty I wasn't at all interested personally. Alls I can say is that if you definitely need to be interested in business and IT, don't just take it because it's academic and you might get a job out of it.

Im actually studying Computer Science for games but that doesn't show up. The course leader isn't approachable at all for starters. They told us they would teach us from scratch as if we've never programmed before, that was a lie. We get 5 lessons on Unity and then are expected to make a full game from it? The biggest issue is the fact they go on strike for 5 weeks and some even go on Holiday, they also set us assignments without being able to get support from them since they are on strike. The fact we aren't getting reimbursement for the strikes is also an absolute joke.

My perception of the value is that it is lacking. My teachers for one particular module this academic year, namely "Databases for Business" were increadibly inadequate providing little help and the module itself was poorly organised. Others however were exceptional, namely the lecturer for "Management for Performance", she provided a great deal of help to me, including with issues outside of her module which is greatly appreciated. This course does not provide personal tutors. Course content itself is okay, most is interesting and useful however I do find SQL boring however that is a personal preference. Job prospects are decent, the course provides a wide range of knowledge useful for the modern business environment, however it's broad nature does create some restriction.

Theres lots of equipment available to use which justifys the price however the teaching sometime avoids using the equipment and more on simulations which are designed for people without the equipment. Seems quite pointless having the equipment there especially if its not being used for a while. However some teachers understand the importance of using the real equioment and i have learnt a whole deal more doing so. I never had a personal tutor but i feel like if i was to look for help i would get some decent support with my learning. Course content is good but majority is from online course netacad.com. only in the second year i feel like i have developed a better understanding and started real learning. However the modules seem a little random and not really wholey networking (databases and web development) but saying that i have enjoyed most of he content. I am confident that the job prosepects that come along with the degree are in the plenty and i feel confident for my future
