The Integrated Foundation Year (or more formally known as the BSc Hons Computing Science (with Integrated Foundation Year)) is a full-time university level course that is taken at the University of Ulster, Jordanstown campus, Northern Ireland.
The course's objective is to familarise students with the basics of Computer Science before they wish to progress towards an honours degree. The prospective students undertake six modules within the course, and are assessed on a series of coursework assignments and examinations that happen at the end of the winter and spring semester. These modules are known as the following:
- Principles of Computing: Hardware Technologies
- Principles of Computing: Software Technologies
- Professional Skills in Computing
- Mathematical Skills for Computing
- Principles of Computing: Information Networks
- Computing in Business and Society
Students which successfully pass this course are then allowed to progress onto the BSc Hons Computing Science course. Alternatively, they may choose to leave the course with a Diploma and pursue a career path in the field of computing with their obtained skills.
