# BSc in Computer Science and Mathematics within the Natural Sciences programme (CFG0): 2024-2025

Entry requirements: See the EssentialsAbout BSc in Computer Science and Mathematics within the Natural Sciences programmeThis course combines theoretical knowledge from mathematics with concrete applications in computer science. In the first year you will study essential core components of mathematics and computer science, giving you a rigorous foundation for future years. Subsequently, you will have the opportunity to tailor your mathematics and computer science options so that you graduate with a balance of theoretical and practical skills that reflect your interests while the requirement to take Capstone credits will give your degree depth. The current course structure is shown in the table below that consists of modules which
Further details about the modules in the Mathematics list. Below is an example of modules that are timetabled to satisfy these rules except in Year 3 where the set may
Note that: - You can vary the balance between the two subjects in all years assuming the rules below and timetable will allow it.
- In Year 3 students are required to take no less than 20 credits and no more than 60 Capstone Modules from two subjects. The minimum number of credits is reviewed on an annual basis as we are working towards students being required to take 40 credits, when this change happens students will be informed explicitly.
- Not all combinations of the modules which make up the degree rules are guaranteed to timetable, but one set will.
- If no student is following the Joint-Honours degree in a given year, then we do not ask for modules to be timetabled for that cohort in the following year.
- The timetable changes each year.
- Future changes in the Joint-Honours rules are either flagged up in the programme regulations in the Faculty Handbook or in the Computer Science/Mathematics advice.
- Students are welcome to suggest to the Director better guaranteed combinations, but due to the quality assurance process and timetabling the lead in time is one year.
