Can anyone tell me more about what is covered in the first year of computer science. The website does not appear to go into as much detail of the modules as other universities do. Almost certain I will be picking St Andrews, it was my favourite when I visited.

Both semesters are taught in Java. First semester starts fairly slow, since it's designed to be okay for people who have never programmed before, but by the end of the year you'll be quite far along. You'll certainly be comfortable with for-loops, switch statements, classes, using APIs, and so on by the end of first semester. <a href="https://portal.st-andrews.ac.uk/catalogue/View?code=CS1002">Here</a> is the first-semester module, and <a href="https://portal.st-andrews.ac.uk/catalogue/View?code=CS1003">here</a> is second semester. Each has a fairly comprehensive list of the concepts covered.

Let me know if you have any more questions about CS at St Andrews! I'm a second-year studying it.
