This UNIQ course is a taste of the mathematical, scientific and engineering principles underlying every kind of computing system.

To be a good Computer Science student, you need to have a curiosity about how things work and the ability to use maths to solve problems.

Throughout the week you will be introduced to theories and concepts in lectures, backed up and demonstrated through practical sessions in the labs in the Department of Computer Science. You will have the chance to learn and write programs, as well as exploring new areas of maths beyond that studied at school.

The undergraduate Computer Science course at Oxford University teaches you about the theoretical principles underpinning current computing technology, and how those principles relate to a wide range of software and hardware technologies. As an undergraduate Computer Scientist, you will gain practical problem-solving and program design skills that will stand the test of time in a rapidly evolving field. You will acquire the fundamental understanding and practical skills needed by future leaders within Computer Science.
