    Applied for computing however the lecturer made it sound like we will all be on the same framework for the first year.

    Yer its my firm I'm only from down the road in Southampton and have always loved Bournemouth so it was a very easy choice for me.

    And to quote the paperwork I got

    'First Year = 6 common taught subjects taken by all students
    Business and professional issues, computers and networks, databases, programming, systems analysis and design, web and media development.

    You are correct; everybody who's degree is part of the computing framework will do a standard first year where you get a taste of everything.

    On a side note, don't be worried about programming. You won't be expected to know anything about programming when starting so you'll be taught from the bottom, and there are weekly drop-in sessions for programming so you get considerably more help with it than other subjects. Nothing is rushed either so you can fully understand how and why everything works.

    If you have any other questions I'll try to help.
