Subject

Creative computing

Our course is as flexible and innovative as you are. Today's digital economy needs tomorrow's leaders to have both creative flair and technical skills - and the business acumen to tie them together. If you don’t quite have the entry requirements to study computing at Leicester, this STEM Foundation Year degree is your starting point.

Our integrated Science, Technology and Engineering (STEM) Foundation Year degrees are aimed at students who wish to study a STEM subject, such as creative computing, but don’t have the traditional entry requirements. The course is run on the University of Leicester campus like any other, and you will be studying alongside other students who applied for, and slightly missed out on, a place on a course similar to yours. In the first year of this course you will all be working towards passing a foundation year (year 0), which will enable automatic progression onto year 1 of any of our BSc (or MComp) computing courses.

By completing the STEM Foundation Year you will automatically progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.
You will be taught by our expert academic staff from across a number of departments.
The course strongly emphasises the development of essential professional and personal skills, which are necessary throughout your studies and beyond.
During your foundation year you will join our student community and be able to enjoy all aspects of the University of Leicester student experience.
You will be able to join the Students’ Union, use our academic and leisure facilities, live in our accommodation and access all our support services.
You will have a personal tutor to support you.
