Bursary in Computer Science at Christ Church

Computer science students at Christ Church, along with Sir Tim Berners-Lee (third from left) and Professor Yarin Gal (fourth from left).Christ Church is leading a major expansion of the University of Oxford’s undergraduate teaching in Computer Science.

With a long tradition of scholarship in mathematics and the sciences, it has recently opened its doors to students taking Computer Science degrees as well. Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, holds a senior research position at Christ Church. Our new Computer Science tutor is Professor Yarin Gal, with additional teaching provided by Dr Irwin Zaid, and we also have three graduate students in Computer Science.

To celebrate our commitment to Computer Science Christ Church is offering a one-off bursary to support a Computer Science undergraduate throughout his/her three-year BA degree, covering fees and living costs. The Paterson Computer Science bursary will be offered to a student beginning his or her studies in October 2020 at Christ Church, taking straight Computer Science, Computer Science and Philosophy, or Mathematics and Computer Science. The funds will offer a bursary of £15,000 per year to cover living expenses, in addition to paying the full current UK/EU fees, for three years. The beneficiary will also be able to apply for additional sums, of up to £2,500 per year, towards travel expenses and summer internships or courses.

We are delighted to be able to support a student and mark the establishment of Christ Church as a centre of excellence in Computer Science in this way, thanks to the generous support of Mr Sean Paterson.
