INFORMATICS is the study of information and computation, in both natural and engineered systems. It comprises a vast range of scientific and engineering endeavour and has enormous economic and social impact. The University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics possesses a combination of breadth and strength unparallelled elsewhere in the UK and competitive world-wide. It is the only department to have achieved the top 5*A rating in Computer Science in the UK government's 2001 Research Assessment Exercise round, and it is the UK's biggest research group in this area. We currently have around 270 students studying for PhD, and around 140 for MSc.
PHD STUDY is carried out within one of our six research Institutes:
ANC: Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation
CISA: Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications
ICCS: Institute for Communicating and Collaborative Systems ****this is where we do most of our language work
ICSA: Institute for Computing Systems Architecture
IPAB: Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour
LFCS: Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science
