    Hello students,

    I have been offered a Computer Science with Foundation year course at an English university and don't really have an idea of what it is like?

    Some basic Year 1 modules are : Programming, Computation, Information and Data Systems. Was told it also includes discrete maths.


    Years 2 inlcude Networks, OS, Algorithms software, and year 3 is more diverse .

    I don't have a background in Computer Science and never even done IT at a-level equivalent but do you guys think I can handle it? My maths is ok, but I dont know how much maths is needed.

    Thank you guys

    To do computer science you don't really need the IT knowledge but it would be nice to have it. Computer science has more to do with Mathematics and Computing. Hey can I ask what you mean by English university. Didn't u do A levels?

    depending on the university, you'll be covering programming, software engineering techniques, discrete (and some continuous) mathematics, logic, databases, algorithms and so on. if you are good at both mathematics and programming you will find computer science very manageable and you should enjoy it. if you haven't programmed before, you might want to introduce yourself to a language before you start the course.
