How to apply
The PhD program in Computer Science 2016-2017 starts on November 1, 2016. This year, we award six research fellowships to the best applicants.
Other opportunities of funding, for a total of other 4 positions, may be offered to students that will be in good position in the final ranking from professors of our Department of Computer Science. Also we are in touch with industries that may be interested in funding students under a combined university-industry PhD program (the so called "Apprendistato di alta formazione e ricerca"). After the admission exam students will be informed about these opportunities.
We particularly welcome applications from International students and from students coming from other Italian Universities.

Admission decisions are made by a faculty Evaluation Committee. The selection procedure includes two phases:
The candidates whose overall score in phase 1 (total for points 1–8) is larger than or equal to 40 out of 60 are short-listed, ranked according to their total qualifications merit score, and invited for an interview.
The short-list is announced by September 19, 2016, at web site: phd.di.uniroma1.it.
Notification is considered as delivered through the announcement of the list. The successful applicants will receive no personal communications of their results.
The interview, in Italian or English, is aimed to assess candidates background, skills, and potential to carry on research in the scientific areas of the PhD Programme. During the interview, the evaluation Committee:
The interviews will take place on September 22, 2016, 09:30AM, Seminar Room, terzo piano, via Salaria 113, 00198 Rome. Upon motivated requests sent to the PhD Coordinator, interviews of students can be done remotely using video-conferencing facilities.
The evaluation Committee assigns a score for the second phase of up to 60 points. A score of at least 40 is required for admission.
After the conclusion of the interviews, the evaluation Committee publishes at web site phd.di.uniroma1.it the final ranking, the list of candidates admitted to the PhD Programme, and the assignment of the PhD grants on the basis of assigned scores.
