- Completing an undergraduate programme in Computer Science is no more difficult than other undergraduate programmes in business and social science.
- Indeed, Computer Science is not a core subject in secondary schools, so students may not have any knowledge in Computer Science before they join a university. However, this does not necessarily mean that learning Computer Science is difficult because we have designed the programme with the assumption that students do not have prior knowledges in Computer Science. Rather, it is usually good to start a new "life" from the beginning. Of course, it may take students adapt to the new learning environment.
