I was looking at the courses at Kent. So far from my research, I found that Computer Science modules were overall different to Computing and Software Engineering. Also, Computing and Software Engineering was nearly the same thing. So what is the difference between Computer Science, Computing and Software Engineering at Kent? Also, can you confirm the grade requirements because it seems all over the place, different on student room and different on Kent's website? Thank you.

Hi there!
So pleased to hear you're considering studying at Kent
Although all three of the courses you've chosen share modules they do have some differences.
Bsc Computer Science gives a general overview of everything with the opportunity to specialise in certain areas if you wish. This course is taught on the Canterbury campus.

Bsc Computing is very similar to the Computer Science course but it is more focused on industry application of computing. Also this course is taught on our Medway campus.

Software Engineering is much more focused on programming and creating software. This is also taught on the Canterbury campus.

All of these are relatively similar courses, but I'd recommend going through each one and seeing which has the most modules that really sound interesting to you This way you can be sure you'll be doing the course that you enjoy the most out of the three.

In terms of entry requirements, always use the University's official website as your guide as this will give you the most up-to-date entry requirements. To clear it all up for you, here is a breakdown of the entry requirements for each of the courses for 2019/2020 entry (these may change slightly next year). For simplicity I've only given the A-level entry requirements but if you use the links I've included above you can also see the entry requirements if you've done a BTEC, HE Diploma or IB.

Computer Science = AAB-BBB
Computing = BBC-BCC
Software Engineering = BBC

I hope that this clears things up for you! If you have any other questions about the courses or about life at Kent in general then please feel free to ask. Good luck with your applications
