Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.

Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.

Why study Computing?

For about half a century now, Computing has been the heart of progress in nearly everything. The first space flight was possible because of Computing power and the ability it brought to calculate and process information at a faster pace than any individual or group of humans ever could.

But of course Computing in the modern era makes the efforts of fifty years ago look prehistoric. As we find more new ways to compute at faster rates and with ever smaller technology, it seems there’s no limit to progress. It’s inspirational.

Careers around Computing offer a front row seat in this relentless push forward. Whether helping build new softwares or applications, supporting organisations with vital data analytics or protecting them from bad actors in the cybersecurity space, there’s a huge range of possibilities.

Our Centre for Applied Computer Science offers you the chance to enter this dynamic and evolving world of digital technology, equipped with the right creative and technical skills.
