Information for prospective students

Undergraduate courses

  • The undergraduate course, called the Computer Science Tripos, is a three-year or a four-year course. Students graduating after three years receive the BA honours degree. Students who achieve a high standard in the third year can stay on for a fourth year and receive both the BA and Master of Engineering (MEng) degrees.
  • Open Days will be held on Thursday 4 July and Friday 5 July 2019 at the William Gates Building.

Masters courses

Doctoral courses

  • The PhD is the primary research degree that can be taken in the Computer Laboratory. The Cambridge PhD is a three-year programme of individual research on a topic agreed by the student and the Laboratory, under the guidance of a staff member as the student's supervisor. There is no compulsory coursework, and students are expected to complete the substance of their research by the end of their third year, submitting their thesis then or within a few months.

Postgraduate Open Day

  • A University-wide Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day takes place in November. The date for 2019 is yet to be confirmed. The event will be of interest to those considering applying for the MPhil in Advanced Computer Science and/or the PhD in Computer Science. Those interested in attending should book via Open Days and Events.
