Hi, I will start my course on Computer Science at KCL this september as an international student and I wanted to review some aspects of the course this summer. Any suggestions? Java? C++? or another think? Thank you!

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Acsel I know you said you do computer science - might not be at this uni but do you have any advice for someone starting a course? :holmes:

I actually do Forensic Computing Puddles but close enough. I don't mind being tagged in

As Puddles says, I'm not at KCL so I can't really comment on what the uni would like. However their unit list can be found on their website and based on that the things I'd look into are:
Programming: Python if you don't have any experience, Java if you do. Not sure if either language are used but they tend to be the popular ones. Nothing wrong with C++ either. To an extent that also covers some data structure stuff
Databases: I assume SQL stuff, so look into database creation and management and be familiar with using SQL commands.
Foundations of Computing and Computer Systems are really ambiguous names but off the top of my head things it could cover include:
Binary
Computer Architecture
Networking
Hardware Components

The optional units are a bit more self explanatory for what you could look into.

Beyond that though, you'll need someone at KCL to give more useful advice. I'd say programming based on your level, basic networking, databases/SQL and computer architecture would be the main things to cover.

first years are taught Java, so take a look at that.
