Where can I study computer science or engineering abroad?
Computer Science and Engineering are popular subjects all over the world. INTO partners with respected universities in the UK, US and Australia – offering international students the opportunity to study their dream degrees. Wherever you study, you’ll be supported as you develop your English language skills and academic knowledge before beginning your degree. You could study at:
Queen’s University Belfast
The UK’s 9th oldest university and a member of the prestigious Russell Group, Queen’s University Belfast is renowned for computer science and engineering excellence. It’s continually at the forefront of technological development, funding world-leading research that informs each of its degrees. Dennise explains, “Belfast has a lot of engineering historical background, and Queen’s understands those engineering cultures. Studying here gives you motivation as well.”
Oregon State University
OSU is placed in the top 1.4% of universities across the world, offering a top education in a safe and comfortable learning environment. Computer science students can choose from a range of specialisms including cyber security and robotics, with cutting-edge laboratories and other state-of-the-art facilities for engineering students.
Pavan really enjoyed the scenery, saying, “It’s a peaceful town and the mountains that surround Corvallis like the valley are pretty beautiful.”
University of Western Australia
Located in Australia’s sunniest major city, Perth, the University of Western Australia is among the world’s top 100 universities (QS World University Rankings 2023). Here, you’ll find three different computer labs for computer science students – all of which are open 24/7. Engineering students can collaborate and get creative at EZONE, a multi-million dollar hub for technological innovation.
What’s it really like to study abroad?
We’ve already covered some of the benefits of studying your degree in a different country – but what is it really like to be an international student?
