Computer Science at Reading

    • Thread Starter

    I'm totally torn between reading and royal holloway and was wondering if anyone could help give me a little advice about readings computer science dept/course.

    I was wondering how heavy the course is on maths? I also heard there is additional maths support available, is this true? I was also wondering how much of the course's grade comes from exam and how much comes from coursework? Hows the teaching for computer science? I'm really interested in A.I. but didn't want to do a purely A.I. course so am I right in thinking that the Reading computer science course is perfect because there seems to be quite a few A.I. themed modules within it?

    Sorry for all the questions i'm just so stuck trying to decide thank you

    From my experience going there, the course is quite flexible as they said you can do a bit of everything really. They mentioned AI although I'm not 100% sure if you learn about it in the first year. About the course being maths based, it's definitely not, I spoke to a student who said he didn't do AS or A2 maths and the maths that was required for the course was annoying but not too difficult or overwhelming.
