About

The PhD in Computer Science offered at The  University of Cambridge 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.

Overview

All research students are admitted to read for the PhD Computer Science degree at The  University of Cambridge, on a probationary basis and will be registered for the Certificate of Postgraduate Study (CPGS) in the first instance.

 During this year students may do some additional coursework and will write a research report that is likely to form the foundation of the eventual PhD thesis. 

Features

At the end of the third term and on completion of the CPGS, students whose performance indicates that they would be able to complete a PhD in a reasonable time will be upgraded to PhD status. A student who is not upgraded to PhD status will normally be awarded the CPGS ( and if no more than three terms have been completed) but will leave before submitting a PhD thesis.

Programme Structure

The CPGS will involve four components:

  • Research skills training
  • Practical work
  • Research report 
  • Attendance at a research workshops and research seminars
