Student Life

What is it like to be a student at the Department of Computer Science?

As a department, we are committed to offering each student a personalised experience and extensive support throughout their time at The University of Warwick.

I’ve found that the staff in the department are friendly and willing to help with any problems you have, and it’s great that every student has a personal tutor they can go to for advice.

The facilities are also excellent and you almost always have access to a workstation no matter how late or early you are working!

The university also has excellent relationships with a range of institutions around the world and offers a variety of study abroad opportunities to which students may apply if they wish. In addition to benefitting from a rich cultural experience, students returning from studying overseas exhibit an international profile that is attractive to potential employers.
