Combine Creativity and Computing with our new Computer Science Degree

Whether you are a data scientist, musician or journalist, this degree will teach you how to use the right tools and how to build your own creative applications.

Students discuss computer science issues
‘You won’t just learn how computers work and solve problems, but how they influence society and can be an expression of creativity.’

A new BSc Computer Science programme coming next year will appeal to a range of students by exploring new subject areas.

It follows a collaboration between the University of London and member institution Goldsmiths, University of London and online learning platform Coursera.

This innovative online course combines core computer science with cutting-edge subjects such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, where learning is achieved by practical activity and projects.

An emphasis on project-based learning allows you to develop career-relevant skills, as well as develop a project portfolio that will help you stand out.

We spoke to programme director, Dr Mathew Yee-King from Goldsmiths and asked what makes this programme different to other Computer Science degrees:

Computing is largely about understanding what computers are and how they work, and using them to solve problems. Our course is also about creativity and understanding and influencing society.

We bring a unique project-based style of teaching, even if you study the course online. It works for a diverse range of interests, from data scientists to musicians to social scientists and journalists.
