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 9 positions of different types. 

For the XXXV 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.

The month of August is mostly vacation time in Italy. The Computer Science Department will be closed from Aug 3rd to Aug 18th. During this month, I will stay connected but maybe not immediately reactive, especially during the weeks from Aug 5th to 18th.

Thank you for your interest in the PhD Programme in Computer Science and Mathematics. We hope to welcome you soon at the University of Bari.
