Brazil: Science Without Borders


O Departmento de Computação na Universidade de Warwick deseja convidar alunos interessados em estudar aqui através do programa Ciencia Sem Fronteiras. Oferecemos cursos de graduação e pos-graduação em varias especialidades teóricas e aplicadas. Contamos com um ambiente agradavel e seguro, com tecnologias avançadas e ensino interativo para melhor apoiar nossos alunos. Visitem o nosso website e sejam benvindos a entrar em contato para mais informações.


The Department of Computer Science at Warwick offers first-rate research and teaching facilities, housed in a purpose-built building at the heart of the Warwick campus. The Department is consistently ranked amongst the top Computer Science Departments in the UK. It also has an excellent employability record. An interactive tour gives a brief introduction to student experience in the Department.

Research in the Department encompasses a variety of topics, ranging from advancing the foundations of computing to exploring novel, interdisciplinary applications. The activity is strengthened by a range of collaborations, including within the University, nationally, and internationally. Recent large-scale funding has resulted in the establishment of cross-faculty centres of research, which bring together emergent technologies and target disciplines. The Department is consistently ranked amongst the top Computer Science Departments in the UK in independent surveys.

We welcome students from Brazil as part of the Science Without Borders (Ciencia Sem Fronteiras) programme. Below you will find further information about the courses we offer.


Visiting Undergraduate Students


The Computer Science programme at Warwick presents an academic perspective on computer science that addresses the key principles relating to the theory of algorithms, computer programming, hardware design, software engineering and human factors. The complementary practical skills to be developed through individual and team project work during the course include specific practical computing skills, such as programming in a variety of paradigms, systematic development methods, specification techniques, parsing, data structure design and implementation, user-interface design and database programming.

It is essential that all applicants have experience with programming in a modern object-oriented language such as Java or C++.

You will be expected to complete a total of 120 CATS credits, following the programme of studies set out for Computer Science Year 2 students. In addition to your academic modules, you will be expected to register for the in-sessional programme offered by the Centre for Applied Linguistics.

During the year you will be assisted in finding a suitable industrial placement, research project or industrial project.

Note: Students following particular programmes in Brazil may be eligible to register for level 3 modules within the Department of Computer Science. This can be discussed with your personal tutor on arrival.


Visiting Research Students


Applications from visiting students sponsored by under the Science without Borders are invited from suitably qualified candidates. However we can only support your studies if the Department of Computer Science has expertise, and an available supervisor, in your area of interest. Before proceeding with your application, we would strongly recommend that you read about the extensive research interests on the department’s website. With the support of your supervisor you will have the opportunity to continue with your research and will have access to all the relevant facilities at the University.

While pursuing your research, and with the support of a designated supervisor in the department, you will be invited to take a selection of the taught modules at postgraduate level in order to complement your previous background and prepare you for research.

With the support of your supervisor you will have the opportunity to continue with your research and will have access to all the relevant facilities at the University.

Note: In addition to the academic programme, you will also be expected to register for the in-sessional English language programme offered by the Centre for Applied Linguistics, where required. As a fully-enrolled student at Warwick you will be able to access the full range of services offered by the Research Student Skills Programme.


Full PhD Programmes


Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates sponsored by the Science without Borders programme. However we can only support your studies if the Department of Computer Science has expertise, and an available supervisor, in your area of interest. So before proceeding with your application, we would strongly recommend that you read about the extensive research interests in the department. We invite you to contact an appropriate academic directly before applying for studies.

If you are having difficulties in finding a suitable supervisor, please email a summary (maximum 500 words) of your research interests to the Science Without Borders coordinator in the Department, Dr Sara Kalvala. For further information on pursuing a research degree at the University of Warwick (including finding a supervisor and writing a research proposal) please see the general Postgraduate Study at Warwick pages.
