Part C, Computer Science

In Part C you are required to take 5 optional subjects from Schedule C1.

Most of these subjects will be examined by a take-home mini-project, though some will be examined by a sit-down paper of three hours' duration. Mini-projects will be handed out to candidates on the last Friday  of the term in which the subject is being taught and have to be submitted in week -1 of the following term. 

In addition, candidates will complete a larger project worth 3/8 of the year’s assessment.

Please note that the courses in Part C are 50% larger than those in earlier years, i.e. for each course in the 3rd year undergraduates are expected to undertake about 10 hours of study per week, but 4th year courses will each require about 15 hours a week of study. Lecturers are providing this extra work in a variety of ways, e.g. some will give 20 lectures but will require you to undertake extra reading, classes and/or practicals, whereas others will be giving 24 lectures, and others still will be doing something in between. Please look at each synopsis for details on this.
