Computer Science and Philosophy at Balliol College
Balliol was one of the first three Oxford colleges to have a Tutorial Fellow in Computer Science, and undergraduate study in the subject is well supported here. All first-year and second-year core courses in computer science are taught in College. The College Library is richly stocked with study resources in Computing subjects. In addition to the Tutorial Fellow in Computation, the Fellowship includes Nick Trefethen, Professor of Numerical Analysis. The Oxford Internet Institute is also housed within Balliol.
Balliol tutors in both Computer Science and Philosophy recognise the special requirements of this joint course and work together to organise the teaching to best fit the structure of the course. With a number of Fellows and Lecturers in both subjects, Balliol guarantees good teaching and caters for a large number of options.
Computing teaching and computing students are well integrated into the broader mathematics community within Balliol. There is a flourishing undergraduate mathematical society, which helps introduce new mathematics students to the College and also organises an annual dinner with a guest mathematical speaker.
Number of places at Balliol: 2.
