Hey everyone I'm Littleswany one of the CAs for this forum.

I have seen a couple of discussions here about wether Maths is needed to study Computer Science at X University, or can I go to a good uni to study CS even though I didn't take math.So this thread.

I will try to keep it updated be please let me know if something needs updating

Kings college london has in fact changed their entry requirements, now you must have either maths, further maths, computer science or computing. no more accepting with ICT, software developing, electronics etc.

This is my list, mostly restricted to what I think are the best departments/unis. There are probably far more.

Unis that require Maths explicitly:

Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, Edinburgh, Bristol, Durham, St Andrews, UCL, Warwick, Manchester, Sheffield, Exeter, Bath, Birmingham, Glasgow, York

Loughborough, Surrey, Dundee, HW, Strathclyde, Aberdeen

Unis that require a mathsy/science subject (CS or Maths or Physics or Chemistry or Econ):
Leeds, KCL, RHUL, Liverpool, UEA, QUB

Every other uni (grade B at gcse maths and above):
Newcastle, Nottingham, Lancaster, Kent, Cardiff, Leicester, QMUL, Reading, Swansea

As a Computer Science student, I do recommend you look into a bit of Maths before going to University. The majority of A-Level will be covered in just a few hours.

AFAIK all CS courses in Edinburgh (joint included) require an A-Level in Mathematics?

University of Worcester and Birmingham City don't require maths for Computer Science/Computing/IT.

Just 96 tariff points (CCC/MMM) For Worcester.
BBC/DDM for Birmingham City.

Its worth noting that if you really want to do CS but don't have Maths - there's always a foundation year route offered by many universities.

Great thread. I'd also mention QUB as a Russell Group uni that does not specifically need a Maths A-Level for entry:

From the QUB website:

"A level requirements
BBB including Computing, Mathematics or Software Systems Development + GCSE Mathematics grade C
OR
ABB including Chemistry, Digital Techgnology, GCE A-level ICT (not Single Award Applied ICT), Physics, Technology and Design or Double Award Applied ICT + GCSE Mathematics grade C."

Also Queen Mary University London was added to the Russell Group a few years ago (2012 I think??)

Aberystwyth University doesn't require Maths except a C at GCSE but they are very chill. There is also a range of computer science courses to choose from.

  1. First of all I want to study Computer Networking and Cyber Security - BSc (Hons) in metropolitan or somewhere else I'm sayin metropolitan because i contact them and they emailed me back but they didnt answer to my problems. All of the modules of all three levels look very interesting. However, I am a bit concerned regarding the nature of the modules. I am not particularly good in math and i was wondering whether that would be a problem. I do not want to pick a course in which mathematical skills are of great importance and end up failing.Please if anyone studied let me know if I should pick this course.

If they don't require maths the course will be designed to give you whatever maths assistance is needed.
