Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hello, I've just completed year 1 of the BSc Computing course at Coventry University and I'm thinking to transfer to Computer Science from year 2. I have read several articles differentiating the two courses but I am still unsure as to which would be a better option.
    Could someone (with experience in this uni and course) explain me the basic difference between the two and what your recommendation would be. Thank you
