    The University of Southampton is pioneering the development of Web Science, a new discipline that aims to provide a thorough understanding of the Web as a social and technical phenomenon. This demands new ways of working, across traditional academic disciplines, to build skills and expertise in the technical underpinnings of the Web as well as the social processes that have shaped its evolution and the impact of the Web on society.

    You can expect to be taught by researchers at the forefront of Web Science, tackling some of the Web’s biggest challenges. Our excellent facilities, key partnerships with major industries and a world-leading research base ensure that your time studying with us will be productive, challenging and enjoyable.

    There are two pathways through the Web Science undergraduate degree:

    • I201 BSc Web Science (Computer Science)
    • I200 BSc Web Science (Social Science)

    Our programme in Web Science allows students to choose between two 'pathways': Web Science (Social Science) and Web Science (Computer Science). Students on both pathways will take a shared core curriculum, which enables development of the knowledge and skills required to develop critical understanding of the Web, its history and current trajectories of development. These core modules will draw on a range of disciplines to offer a common grounding in Web Science.

    In addition to this core curriculum, students will also pathway-specific Web Science modules. The degree has been designed to maximise student choice by allowing you to tailor the degree structure to suit your own interests.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
