New A-level grades

Following the recent government announcement that A-level students will now receive Centre Assessed Grades – grades awarded based on teacher assessment – as their final result, we are still making offers for 2020 entry subject to availability.

We can appreciate that this a hugely unsettling time for those entering university this year. We are doing everything we can to assist those wishing to join us this September. If your circumstances have changed as a result of Centre Assessed Grading, or you’ve applied but did not receive a place with us based on your previous grades, please contact us today. You can learn more about our admissions position via our Centre Assessed Grades FAQs

Why study Computing & Information Technology at BU?

  • Many of our computing degrees are accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and can help you work towards Chartered IT Professional status
  • Flexibility to specialise around your interests and career goals – you’ll apply for one of our eight courses in this subject area, but can switch to another specialism at the end of your first, meaning you can wait until you have a stronger understanding of the subject before committing
  • Open up career opportunities – 95% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of finishing their course, across a diverse range of computing and IT roles
  • Gain industry experience on an optional 30-week placement – our placement students have worked for organisations such as Microsoft, Kingfisher, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Goldman Sachs, and General Electric
  • Study in a student-centred learning environment – learn how to apply hands-on skills to solve problems, with an emphasis on intellectual achievement and employability
  • As the computing sector is constantly evolving, so too are our courses – reflecting industry and technological developments to ensure you’re well-prepared for the world of work when you graduate.
