Descripción



One of the challenges in computing is to make computers demonstrate intelligent behaviour, so that they can solve new problems or cope with the unknown. Current achievements include image and voice recognition, and NASA's Mars Rovers. By combining the study of artificial intelligence and traditional computing techniques with an understanding from psychology of how humans learn, these degree programmes prepare you for a career applying computing in challenging applications.

Artificial intelligence related topics covered include techniques for representing and reasoning about knowledge, including approaches in machine learning in which general patterns are learned from examples. These programmes give you the opportunity to study these techniques, and their application in areas such as computer vision, games, natural language processing and the semantic web.

Grades AAAAB, including grade A in Higher Mathematics and a scientific bias to other subjects studied. The Highers must be taken in one sitting. Minimum of five grade 1's and 2's in academic subjects at Intermediate 2 including English, Mathematics and a Physical Science.
Accepted in combination with grades AAAAB in five Higher subjects plus Grade A in Advanced Highers mathematics; grades AA in Higher Level subjects plus grades AA in Advanced Higher mathematics and a science subject; or grades AAA in three Advanced Higher level subjects including mathematics and a science subject.
The non-mathematics and the non-science A-level subjects can be replaced with a pass in the Welsh bachelorccalaureate.  Please see the section on A-Levels for relevant subject specific requirements.
An average of 85% including a minimum of 8%% in mathematics. Mathematics must have been studied for at least five periods per week and a final written examination must have been taken. A scientific bias to the specialist subjects studied (as measured by the hours per week).
Applicants taking the AQA bachelorccalaureate should note that this is an acceptable qualification for entry, however offers will be conditional on achievement in the A levels within the qualification rather that the overall bachelorccalaureate award.
We welcome applications from highly qualified students from across the world. Detailed information on our international entry criteria is available on the School of Computer Science Website 
Grades DDM from a technological diploma partially fulfils entry requirements.  Students are also required to have a grade A in A-level mathematics with a pure element.
Applications are considered on an individual bachelorsis, e.g. additional educational achievements, life experience and skills. Please contact the University for further information.  Our standard academic requirements include 60 credits with 45 at Level 3. Minimum of 40 credits should be with a Distinction grade (15 of which must be in mathematics), plus 15 credits with a Merit grade in a science-related subject.  Students are also required to have a grade A in A-level mathematics with a pure element.
The University welcomes applicants with the AP qualification. Such applications will be considered on an individual bachelorsis.
We welcome applications from students who are studying the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma.  Conditional offers will be set on an individual bachelorsis but are likely to include achieving grade D2 in mathematics and D3 in two other Principal Subjects.
A grade B overall the IT or Engineering Advanced diploma partially fulfils entry requirements.  Students are also required to have a grade A in A-level mathematics with a pure element.
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education. Please refer to UCAS for further information: UCAS reference guidelines
Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.
The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
GCSE English Language grade C, IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in individual components, TOEFL 100 ibt with no less than 23 in individual components
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
Application and selection
Apply through UCAS
.
We currently expect to interview all UK and EU bachelorsed applicants to whom we are considering making an offer.
If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process. If you are planning to re-sit the final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but we may require further information in order to make an informed judgment on your application.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.

Ben London: MEng Computer Science, current student
'The course has allowed me to study a subject that I enjoy and offers a wide range of modules meaning that I can select the areas that interest me most. During various modules we have heard from external lecturers representing a range of companies and organisations. This has provided me with a wider prospective of industry and even a few inside tips!'
