Computer science has always had clear links to particular career paths, and its popularity has been contingent on the perceived demand for its graduates and the need for specialist technical skills in the job market. A shift evident in today’s digital world sees computational thinking becoming fundamental to many aspects of our economies and societies, from biological research to financial services, as automation, artificial intelligence, and big data transform every facet of our lives. Today’s world requires a much wider grasp of computing applications and the business operations of the companies and industries they serve. Schools must do more to transform information technology education beyond computer usage to a wider understanding of programming. By equipping more students to embark on tertiary computing studies, they can also help bring wider competencies to the discipline, making it more relevant to the needs of society and the global economy.

This Subject Spotlight research focuses on international student demand for computer science and its various sub-disciplines and examines global interest, regional, gender and mobility trends among undergraduates and postgraduates. In addition to enrolment trends across key UK institutions, the report evaluates the competitive set, government policy, and profiles prospective students. A valuable resource for nations and institutions, this report can help support the development of strategies to drive recruitment in computer science disciplines and provide the knowledge to explore partnership opportunities, while encouraging the training of professionals who are better prepared for the challenges of the modern digital age.
