Being only in my first year here, I can't say I got the whole overview of the courses at this university, but so far I have enjoyed it. There are 5 courses for the first semester, Maths, Engineering, Architecture, Java and the Group Project. The most enjoyable one was Java because of the lecturer, John Latham, who is a brilliant man. Thr Group Project and Maths were among the ones I liked because I already had experience working in a team and also I studied advanced maths before. For the Engineering I was struggling to get the labs done in time, but the course was very interesting and the resources provided were very detailed. For the Architecture course I had a hard time understanding everything, mainly because the lecturer wasn't speaking English very well and also the materials were poorly made.

Very good overall course. The university is very focused on teaching you on how to learn in a team with team members that you have never met before, which will be a very valuable trait when working in industry!

This degree teaches you a lot more than you expect before coming here. And you don't expect a little. There are opportunities all over the place, every day, everywhere. The lecturers and the teachers are very good at what they do, they are very helpful, and you will never complain about not having enough resources.

University of Manchester is one of the best universities in UK not only because of it's academic staff which is providing all the help you need, but also for the teaching quality provided and the diversity of people and mentalities that you meet every day.

Computer Science at Manchester is a well structured, interesting degree that breaks the boundaries between vocational and non-vocational degrees. Whilst learning raw skills that can be applied to the world of computing, like learning how to code in Java, this degree also teaches useful practical skills in team work, time management and organisational skills. Every student has a tutor, that monitors their progress and is always available for pastoral and academic help. There are weekly peer mentoring sessions, where older students help answer any difficult questions students may have.

A lot of options to choose modules of your interests. Assessment is usually group, project, individual project/coursework and exams.

The BSc Computer Science degree is definitely worthwhile, there are some issues with the Software Engineering and First Year Project modules however and I would check to make sure they have been resolved. (Terrible marking, people hardcoding answers)

Get pushed in at the deep end. Some units, like java, are very enjoyable. Teachers are great some are hard to understand.

The course is really engaging, and although they start from basics that some people already know, you find that you still learn details that are useful and often overlooked. The lecturers are generally enthusiatic, and the spread of topics in the first year is broad and interesting. Specialisations begin in 2nd year, and you will learn alot of detail.

Computers Science at the University of Manchester is a rigorous, but a very well taught course. Every week there are different labs and examples classes that need to be completed in order to get a good mark. After only having been there for 1 semester, I already have gained so much knowledge that I otherwise wouldn't have.

Course work needs to be reviewed and made sure it can be completed in the time required and with consideration of other subjects.
