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 year, 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.
