    As a prospective student who is willing to study Computer Science as a degree, I have made the bold choice to take a joint degree. However, I'm torn between what joint subject I should study, as I'm interested in both areas.

    Philosophy with computing is about computability and intelligence, while Mathematics with computing is more about algebra, logic and concurrent programming.

    I honestly don't know which degree would help/support me better (I'm aiming to study for a PhD/D.Phil), and it'd be really helpful if I got some pointers/advice.

    Sorry, blatant plug, but we've got a "Philosophy +" taster day coming up for people who are considering joint degrees in Philosophy plus Maths/CompSci/Physics and want to learn more. It's free to attend. You just need to get your school to sign you up. Info here: http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/philosophyplus/

    Or there's our Further Maths - What Next? event where you can find out about all the subjects you mention, and more http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/FurtherMathsWhatNext/
