AdmissionsI am one of the departments Undergraduate Admissions Tutors, and would be happy to answer any questions from interested applicants. However, in the first instance, please contact our Undergraduate Admissions Co-ordinator with any queries. Contact details and course information are available at our admissions website.
Local (BS8) WeatherI run an experimental weather station, housed here at the Department of Computer Science. We are currently trialing some software to display the local weather. Recent measurements (updated every minute) and a forecast for the department can be found here. The system is still very much experimental, so no guarantee of accuracy or even the functioning of the web-server is given (and the wind direction measurement is off by a constant factor of approximately 180 degrees).
