The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course.

Please note that fees are payable during your placement year – please see fees and how to apply for more information.

This course is open to International students.

What's covered in this course?

Studying computing with us puts you at the heart of an exciting, innovative community. You will study the fundamental concepts of computer science in your first year, including computer programming, data structures and algorithms, information systems, computer networks and computer architecture. 

Part of your first-year assessment will involve taking part in our annual Innovation Fest, where students get together to solve society’s problems with creative technology. Previous projects have included medical assistance drones, accessible gaming controllers, and smart housing solutions. The event brings together students, academics and industry guests, so it’s a great way to have fun, build experience and network, and win prizes! 

In your second year, you will consolidate your learning by studying advanced subjects that emphasise software engineering skills. You will also be introduced to topics such as operating systems, cyber security, discrete mathematics, and web application development.

In your final year, you will broaden your understanding of computer science by studying specialised subjects like artificial intelligence, cloud computing and wearable computing. In addition, you will complete an individual project in order to demonstrate your technical skills and general employability in preparation for career progression. The individual project simulates typical graduate workplace tasks that require in-depth knowledge and skills in a specific area of computer science. This will include consideration of wider issues and the ability to manage activities and resources, and to generate, implement and report on solutions to meet task objectives.

During your course, you’ll have the opportunity to take a sandwich placement year between your second and third year. This is something we recommend highly, as it will give you an invaluable opportunity to hone your expertise, try out a potential career path and get relevant workplace experience that is valued by many employers. It will also boost your CV.

Throughout your studies, you’ll be supported by our expert teaching staff, all of whom have a wide range of research and industrial experience in areas such as computer security and software engineering, which they use to enhance the curriculum. 

This Computer Science course has been carefully designed to provide you with a comprehensive academic background that combines the professional skills that will set you apart from your peers.

You’ll be based in the  Millennium Point building in our City Centre Campus, where you’ll have at your fingertips an array of professional-standard facilities with which to develop your key practical skills and consolidate your academic learning.

Thanks to our strong partnerships with the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) and the Oracle Academy, you’ll have enviable access to leading industry knowledge. This is complemented by the Cisco Systems and Microsoft Academy Centre, both situated in-house.

Student stories

Marcus Miller

Marcus Miller

Marcus Miller always had an interest in computers but a boarding school education saw that fade. After a few years in employment, he rekindled his passion – undertaking a Computer Science degree at Birmingham City University. Since then, he has set up his own successful SEO consultancy company, Bowler Hat.

Marcus enjoyed every element of his course; almost having too much fun. He had some great teachers and was generally very inspired. Our Computer Science BSc (Hons) course sparked his interest in web technologies, which led to the creation of Bowler Hat.
