A minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English Language and grade 5 or above in Maths. This is a practical and challenging course designed for students who enjoy problem-solving, logic and “hands on” computer programming. Taught in well-equipped IT labs, students can expect their own dedicated PC in lessons, each with access to a range of visual programming languages.
Two exams and coursework at the end of the 2 year course. Coursework is worth 20% of the final mark and involves writing a solution to a problem using visual and object-oriented techniques to prepare you for university courses and jobs in the IT industry.
This course will prepare you thoroughly for Computer Science courses at university or for degree level computing Apprenticeships. Previous students have gone to university to study: Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Internet Computing, Software Engineering, Games Programming and Civil Engineering. Others have secured computing apprenticeships at GCHQ, the BBC, BT and Capgemini.
Students are encouraged to attend the Villiers Park Inspiring Excellence in Computer Science residential course.

I want to complete a Physics degree after college and the subjects that Shrewsbury Colleges Group offer will help me to achieve that. Computer Science will help with this, as a lot of programming is involved. It is really interesting to learn how computers work.
This course is linked to roles within the NHS.
