What our students say...

"I’m glad I enrolled, the course is challenging and covers a lot, but it’s structured in a way that allows you to approach it one step at a time. Learning how to develop software is my favourite thing about the course. At the beginning, I thought that being exceptional at maths would have been necessary to develop software which I was worried about. There is an element of maths, but writing code is more about being able to solve problems and think things through. The third year project that I was a part of was fortunate enough to receive funding to improve our software project over the summer, this was a huge highlight for me."
