Computer Science with Education and Qualified Teacher Status

Course Introduction

This is a highly practical course which combines a thorough understanding of Computer Science with a carefully supervised programme of education theory and practice – involving regular stints in schools. For two thirds of your time you will study alongside specialising Computer Science students as you learn the main areas of the subject. These include software engineering and programming languages, as well as computer systems, computer architecture and data structures.

In addition to the technical knowledge you’ll need to pursue a career in this field, you’ll learn about the impact of technology on individuals, organisations and society.

But from your first year you will also have regular experience of working, and eventually teaching, in schools, so you will emerge ready to take up a teaching career straight away. Your progression will be carefully supported and monitored by tutors who are acutely aware of how to pace your experience.
