Course summary

This joint degree offers the opportunity to combine an appreciation of mathematical reasoning with an understanding of computing. Mathematics is a fundamental intellectual tool in computing, but computing is increasingly used as a key component in mathematical problem-solving. The course concentrates on areas where mathematics and computing are most relevant to each other, emphasising the bridges between theory and practice. It offers opportunities for potential computer scientists both to develop a deeper understanding of the mathematical foundations of their subject, and to acquire a familiarity with the mathematics of application areas where computers can solve otherwise intractable problems. It also gives mathematicians access to both a practical understanding of the use of computers and a deeper understanding of the limits on the use of computers in their own subject.

Admission tests

Interview

Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT)

The MAT is a paper-based test. It is a 2-hour 30-minute, subject-specific admissions test. Candidates answer 5 of the 7 questions, according to which course within Mathematics and Computer Science they are applying for. The MAT must be taken on a set date which can be found at ox.ac.uk/mat. All applicants must register in plenty of time and before the registration deadline, 18.00 BST on 15 October. See ox.ac.uk/mat for further information.
