I'm starting on the CS and AI course in September. Is there anyone who has completed first year that can recommend me things to prepare in the 2 months until I start? E.G Specific languages or programming concepts, any mathematical areas etc.

Hello Conlove,

In my first year, we had a lot of core modules in Java so I would strongly recommend you to learn Java if you want to be prepared for the first year. It will also be good to brush up on linear algebra as well. The courses are designed for people with no coding experience so you will still be able to complete the modules and assignments without having any previous experience.

The best advice I can give you is to finish assignments early, so you form a good habit from the beginning and not leave everything at the last minute. I made this mistake thinking it is only the first year and the grades don't count, but it made it harder for me in my second year as I found it difficult to break out of the habit and my grades were suffering because of this.

It would be best to read the module descriptions so you know what you will be learning and look up relevant topics before starting your course.
For more information about the modules, please visit the course page for Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence BSc (Hons).

I hope this helps!

Kind Regards,
Erica (3rd Year Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Student)
