Goodnight!

Pippa asked:

What qualities are you looking for at the assessment centre?

Nic replied:

We want to see your passion for the course. I would suggest looking at the PwC website as we have lots of hints and tips and advice on how to best prepare for an assessment day

Hannah asked:

Currently, what is the ratio of male to female students pn computer science courses at Birmingham?

Mark Lee replied:

Like all computer science degrees in the UK we do not have an equal gender split. I think our last intake was around 20-25% female. We’d like to have a far more diverse intake of students.

Prabhjot asked:

During the third year, working with PWC, will accommodation be provided by the university/PWC or will we be left to find private housing nearby?
