Peterhouse does not operate a fixed quota of places in Computer Science, but tends to admit 1 or 2 students each year. Dr Robert Mullins is the Director of Studies for Peterhouse as well as St John's College. For a student's perspective on studying Computer Science at Peterhouse, have a look at the JCR's alternative prospectus and read their interview with a current student.
