Hi there! I’m Ben, and I want to take you through a week in my life as a Computer Science student at the University of York. In this blog post I’m going to talk about the lectures and seminars I have each week, everything the department provides to help you as a student, as well as the sorts of groups and societies I take part in every week. I’ve found everyone on my course to be incredibly welcoming and supportive, and really enjoy being a part of the Computer Science department in general. Hopefully I can help you picture what it’s like to study at York and show you why I think it’s such a great place to be a part of!
