    Hey everyone on this thread

    So I got an offer from Hull and Liverpool John Moores for Computer Science, and I also got an offer from Huddersfield for Computing.

    I love working with computers, and its basically been my passion ever since I was a kid. I had one problem about the course Computer Science, which I fear the most about my course is the programming aspect.

    Programming is my only weakness when it comes to IT(I know it sounds weird). I enjoy everything like electronics, and interfacing; 2D computer graphics, information systems, networking technologies; e-commerce and e-business; cyber security, and computer hardware. Having a C at GCSE Maths, does not satisfy me enough to feel that I will succeed at the programming part of my Computer Science.

    Can someone help me out with advice on this? Oh and also what Uni do you guys think I should make first and second, I thought make Hull first, cant think of my insurance yet.

    Computer science isn't just programming. Many people think both are interchangeable. Going down the well trodden path of a software engineer is what people think when you study Computer Science.

    It really depends on the course, we do a fair bit of theory so maths is practically essential, whereas a lot of universities now offer a more courses which do things like apps development, game design etc.

    Hi there! Just a thought but If you love working with computers but you're concerned about the programming aspect then you could consider our Computing in Business or Information and Communication Technology courses instead which are more about how people interact with computers and computer systems than programming….

    Hope this helps!
