Everyone is welcome to attend a departmental Open Day on Thursday the 28th of June. This day will allow you to learn more about what Computer Science involves at an undergraduate level. As you may already know, this is quite different from the kind of IT that is typically taught at school level and in our view, is a much more rewarding subject. You will of course also be able to discover the beautiful city of Bristol and have a look around the University if you do not know it already.
Computer Science has great career prospects with many of the world's most successful companies being founded by Computer Science graduates from the top universities of the world. Our graduates not only find jobs in the software and electronics industries, but are also able to diversify into management consultancy, creative media and finance amongst other professions.
We feel strongly that the future of Computer Science depends on the ability to attract the brightest and most able students, no matter what their background is. We very much hope you will find your visit to Bristol rewarding and look forward to being able to show you around and answer any questions you might have.
The department is in the Merchant Venturers Building on Woodland Road in Bristol. For instructions on how to get here either follow these guides or see this map.
