This programme provides a four-year route into the Computer Science BSc (Hons) degrees for students who do not meet academic requirements for the three year programme.
Study Computer Science at Liverpool and develop a deep understanding of the technology that underpins much of modern life and society. Computer Science is a great choice for those with a keen interest in computers, software and technology. You’ll create functional applications as well as how to consistently iterate and improve your work.
You will spend your first year at Carmel College in St Helens, about nine miles from the main University campus. The college offers small class sizes and high standards of academic achievement.
The foundation year will focus on mathematics and a choice of modules from physics, chemistry, biology, geography and IT.
Upon completion of the foundation year, you will progress onto your chosen degree programme in a computer science related course at the University of Liverpool.

Discover what you'll learn, what you'll study, and how you'll be taught and assessed.
On successful completion of the foundation programme at Carmel College, students transfer to the first year of their chosen degree programme.
Teaching is by a mix of formal lectures, small group tutorials and supervised laboratory-based practical sessions. Students also undertake individual and group projects. Key problem solving skills and employability skills, like presentation and teamwork skills, are developed throughout the programme.
Assessment is mainly by examination and coursework. Depending on the modules taken you may encounter project work, presentations (individual or group), and specific tests or tasks focused on solidifying learning outcomes.
Students are expected to score an overall mark of 50% to progress to the second year of the course. In year two, students will start on the first year of their selected degree programme at the University of Liverpool.
