MSc Computer Science 2023-2024

Hi just thought I’d make this thread for anyone who has applied or is applying to the MSc Computer Science Conversion this year.

What made you choose Birmingham?

Have you accepted?

Hello!

I applied for the course back in December and have accepted my offer! I’m coming from a UCL undergraduate degree in Arts and Sciences which was quite a broad undergrad so I’m looking forward to specialising. The Birmingham course seemed like a good option (I’d read a bunch of good reviews from other students). How about you?

Hey, I’m from an arts background and studying in September- do any of you guys know what the timetable might look like? I left registration so long!

I just did registration yesterday! I saw a thread from last year that had a timetable listed in it. I’ll see if I can find it!

It’s encouraging to hear other people are coming from an arts background too. I did a decent bit of programming during my degree and in my spare time but I don’t have a very solid computer science foundation. What’s your experience like?

Here is the thread the timetable someone gave was near the bottom:

Hey everyone! I also applied to this course. I applied quite recently and late in this year though as initially I didn’t know I wanted to do Computer Science.

Does anyone know if we get to also do optional modules or is it just the core modules we do?

I don't think there are any optional modules. The breakdown of the 180 credits and module descriptions can be found here:
