If you would like to study computing or mathematics at Kingston University but are not yet ready to join the first year of a BSc(Hons) course, you can include an extra foundation year within your chosen degree. This gives you an alternative entry route if you lack traditional qualifications such as A-levels or if you have non-computing or non-mathematics A-levels.
The extra year equips you with the skills and knowledge to continue on to the degree of your choice.
Throughout this foundation year, you will study a broad introductory programme that enables you to experience a range of subject areas and gives you the flexibility to reconsider your degree route if you wish. Subjects start at an elementary level, and there is a strong emphasis on the development of practical, investigational and study skills.
This course is taught at Kingston College, where you will benefit from the friendly, informal atmosphere of college life but with the advantage of being able to access the facilities of the University.
Please note that this is an indicative list of modules and is not intended as a definitive list.
This module is a core module for all students following the Mathematics pathway in the Foundation year programme. The module is designed to allow students to develop competence in a range of mathematical and statistical techniques which they can then apply within a range of contexts related to Mathematics degree pathways and their application to solving problems in the real world.
This module is a core module for all students following the Computing pathway in the Foundation year programme. The module is designed to allow students to develop competence in a range of mathematical and statistical techniques which they can then apply within a range of contexts related to computing degree pathways. The module reinforces basic mathematical concepts and is accessible to students with a wide range of previous mathematical experiences. The applications used in the module are designed to support the other modules within the programme so ensuring that students have developed the necessary skills at the correct time for their application within such modules.
This module is designed for those who continue to Level 4 of computer science related degrees.
The aim of this module is to give an understanding of the basic principles of computing systems together with the ability to install and configure such systems. It will cover both computer hardware and the operating systems that runs on it.
On successful completion of the module, you will be able to:
This module is designed for those who continue to Level 4 of computing and mathematics-related degrees and also those who undertake technological sciences degrees.
This module aims to give a solid grounding in the basics of software development and teach students the fundamental principles of computer programming and inter-operability.
On successful completion of the module, students will be able to:
This is a core module in the foundation year pathway in Computing & Mathematics. The module provides a bridge between the wide range of study experiences of students at Level 3 and the demands of successful study at level 4.
The module allows students to develop effective study skills, in the context of Computing & Mathematics and develops the essential technical skills necessary to allow students to progress. The module provides a coherent path through a set of learning, practical and theoretical experiences to develop skills and knowledge and is designed to complement and support the subject content of the other modules within the foundation year programme.
We aim to ensure that all courses and modules advertised are delivered. However in some cases courses and modules may not be offered. For more information about why, and when you can expect to be notified, read our Changes to Academic Provision.
