Teaching facilities

Our facilities are consistently rated highly among computing schools in the UK by students voting in the annual National Student Survey.

Abacws offers the very best in exciting new teaching spaces, including lecture theatres and seminar rooms that encourage collaboration and creative thinking. Our fantastic computer labs allow students to work both individually and collaboratively on fundamental aspects of the subject such as coding, and our software and specialised equipment is maintained by our dedicated in-School technical team.

Various "niche" spaces feature throughout the building allowing students to work in a relaxed and informal manner, either on group projects or individual study. Abacws also boasts a Makerspace and IT workshop to support practical computer science projects and a cybersecurity lab for teaching and research.

Students at the National Software Academy in Newport are provided with dedicated equipment whilst also utilising all School and University services.
