Second Year Computer Science with Business Studies BSc 2023/24

The normal load is 120 CATS credits. Candidates for honours are required to take six core modules. The remaining balance of 30 CATS credits can be selected from the optional modules list but must include at least one IB-coded module if a mark of 50% or greater has not been achieved in at least one IB-coded module in the First Year. More information about the availability and pre-requisites for WBS modules can be found on the dedicated CSBS webpage.

In order to qualify for the third year students must be candidates for honours and have at least a second class performance in an IB-coded module. Candidates who fail to meet this requirement may be permitted to proceed to the third year of the Computer Science degree.
