    The BSc Computer Science with Foundation Year degree is intended for students who do not have the appropriate qualifications to directly start the three-year BSc in Computer Science. The foundation year includes a wide range of relevant content that both prepare students for the BSc in Computer Science, as well as enabling them to experience other subjects in Science at Swansea.

    The foundation year will enable you to learn the key scientific, mathematical and engineering concepts that are essential for a future career in Computer Science.

    In your first semester, you will learn how to program. You will also study mathematics relevant to Computer Science, and key skills as well as topics from environmental science and physics. In your second semester, you will study more advanced concepts in Computer Science that will give you a broad overview of different aspects of the subject. You will also learn how to analyse and present data, as well as study topics from bioscience and geography.


    Access to HE (Science): 27 Merits to include Mathematics.

    IB: 24

    We exclude General Studies, Key Skills and some other exams.

    A level Mathematics is not a requirement for our degrees, with the exception of G4GC Mathematics for Computer Science. All modern computer science degrees involve discrete mathematics and mathematical logic, on which all forms of computation, programming, and systems design depend. We have substantial experience (and success!) in teaching these essential tools to students who do not have recent mathematical experience.

    Apart from special circumstances, applicants without a B or higher in GCSE Maths will be rejected. If you apply with a C in GCSE Maths, your application will be considered, and you may receive a higher offer than usual, if you fall into one of these categories:

    You are resitting GCSE Maths.
    You have at least a B in GCSE Statistics.
    You are studying AS or A level Maths, or Statistics, or Physics.
    You are studying an IT/Software/Computing BTEC and expect to obtain at least DDM and the BTEC you are following has some maths component, (or MMM for G401).
    You are expecting to get AAB in 3 A-levels (or 340 UCAS points), (or 240 points for G401)
    Please refer to the UCAS Tariff Tables to determine your points equivalent if you have other qualifications. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider applicants with GCSE qualifications alone.

    Applicants with grades of CCC or higher are welcome (CCD for G401).
