12 Computer science reviews at University of Birmingham


1
Student Review: 3 /5

Computer Science, MSci Hons

By member554337 On 18th February 21

The department is overcrowded and does not have enough staff. This is especially an issue for the conversion masters students who can lose all their marks for an assignment to automated marking. They also have some lecturers who appear to have no idea what they're teaching and have copied and pasted some book pages into slides. Plagiarism from my experience is rampant on the course, with lots of cheating and copying of code. If you are ever in a team project with a bad team, you either have to leave that module or carry the team, marks are never adjusted. A lot of lecturers mark projects on how pretty they look rather than how complex it is e.g. just build a GUI to get marks. Some of the taught coding practices are years out of date such that you get deprecation warnings. To top it all off, the mental health of students appears to be far worse on this course than others. However, there are a few good lecturers who do care, and they make it bearable. Rant over.

Very poor management of the course, few lecturers are helpful and readily available to help. Little concern for student welfare

Computer Science, MSci Hons

The MSc conversion course is very intense and I feel that for people that come from non-STEM backgrounds it might be pretty hard at times which leads to some dissatisfaction. Other than that, if you're prepared to work hard, the structure for you to get a very good understanding of Computer Science is there. If you wish to pursue anything in more detail you'd have a solid foundation if you performed well in the course.

Great course. A couple of shakey modules in the first year but those of currently in review. Even the assignments feel worthwhile and can sometimes be fun! Can't wait for the years ahead.
