Computer Science

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 course, you will be introduced to theories and concepts in lectures, supported by smaller group discussions. You may 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. Experiencing the life of an undergraduate Computer Scientist through UNIQ, you will gain practical problem-solving and program design skills that will stand the test of time in a rapidly evolving field. Your ambassadors will support you as you acquire the fundamental understanding and practical skills needed by future leaders within Computer Science.

You must be studying Maths to A2 in order to apply for this course. Studying Further Maths to A2 is strongly recommended.
