Message from the PhD Coordinator Prof. Maria Francesca Costabile

As Coordinator of the PhD Programme on Computer Science, I will be happy to help any applicants who wish to apply for admission to the PhD Programme, which offers a total of 8 positions of different types. Additional positions will be available later in the fall, for research projects carried out in cooperation with private companies. 

For the XXXIV cycle, 2 positions are reserved for graduates from foreign Universities. The selection procedure is based on both the evaluation of the documents presented by the applicants, which must include the short description of a project, and an interview via Skype.

The selection procedure for the other positions is based on the evaluation of the documents presented by the applicant and on the results of both a written exam and an oral exam. Foreign applicants can give both exams in English.
