The Bootstrap Programme is a department-specific induction programme that has run for three years. Initially Bootstrap was a short programme used to help students get to know their peers and a few members of the lecturing staff. The programme was designed to provide students with a degree of comfort in their new learning environment. The induction programme has evolved into a programme that is also intended to help students to better understand what computer science is and how the department’s research will enhance their degree.
