Lol, so I’ve confirmed my offer and applied for accommodation XD. Studying Computer Science, kinda nervous at the quality of it HOWEVER I love the uni so much, it’s a new course, every course starts somewhere I guess. I’m predicted A*AAB right now. I just want to know how employable I would be after my degree, aiming to graduate with a high class ( hopefully a 1st but a 2:1 is also cool)? Like what extracurricular things could I do? Is there anything online which anyone recommends? I want to have the same chance as someone from a better uni. (I didn’t do Alevel CompSci so that’s why I’m here, I didn’t like the other unis I applied to either)

Congrats on your offer and accommodation. I'm sure your employability in computing is probably high. But it also depends on what you want to do in your job after uni. And if your course's modules prepare you for that job. Such as if you don't want to be coding a lot in your job or just manage a team with your knowledge of computer science.

Hope this helps

Hi!. I have asked the department for a bit more of a insight into the modules. I am looking into various job roles now, I think I’d best suit IT technician or something like that. Thank you for your help

Do you know what you would like to do after your degree? I hire software engineers (not a recruiter, I am a manager in tech), and I can help let you know what I look for, and the kind of things to do as extra-curricular work to encourage hiring managers to give you a job if I know roughly what you're looking to do.
