Venue: Birkbeck Clore Management Centre

Book your place

The School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences welcome you to our Computing and Data Science undergraduate and postgraduate offer holder evening. This will be an opportunity to meet with your academics, engage with a taster lecture and have your questions answered at the end.

The evening consists of a taster lecture indicating the type of class you will receive during the initial weeks of your study at Birkbeck by providing a gateway into the powerful world of programming with Python. 

The session is specifically for aspiring Computer Science and Data Science students, this session will present the fundamental concepts of programming using Python's clear and beginner-friendly syntax while also illustrating the diverse and complimentary teaching methods we use on the programme. We'll delve into core topics like variables, data types, control flow, and functions, topics which are indicative of the skills you will acquire to build your first programs and solve problems with code.  Whether you're a complete beginner or have some coding experience, this interactive session will advance your interest and provide a solid foundation for further exploration in the  fields of computer science and data science as provided at Birkbeck.



Our school has a long history of computer science expertise dating back to the establishment of the Department of Computer Science in 1957, making it one of the oldest computing departments worldwide. 

Having a long-established reputation in data management and computational intelligence, we have evolved into a world-leading centre in algorithms, data science, artificial intelligence, and logical methods.

We engage in a broad spectrum of both fundamental and applied research, with research collaborations with many industry partners and academic institutions in the UK and abroad, which complement and inform our taught programmes.

Situated in Bloomsbury in the heart of London, students are ideally placed to experience the capital’s places of education, culture and business. Our taught programmes emphasise the use of information technology in organisations, and aim to empower people with the technical and management skills required to succeed in a competitive market place.
