Which oxbridge course would be best suited for someone who intends to study AI/Machine Learning at a graduate level? I can’t decide between the Oxford/Cambridge Computer Science and Oxford Maths/Compsci joint honours, since I don’t know which would be the best course for me.
Any thoughts?

Either would be fine, you don't even need a degree in computer science to go into AI/ML. I wouldn't recommend worrying too much about specific specialisations now though. Your interests may change by the time it comes to applying for graduate courses and AI/ML is a bit of a buzzword field at the moment.

Apply to both and choose the one that accepts you. Good luck

You can't apply to multiple courses at Oxbridge at undergrad.

True. The OP wrote “at graduate level”

OP is applying for Computer Science or Computer Science and Mathematics, both of which are only offered as undergraduate degrees at Oxford, not MScs. They are asking which of these undergraduate degrees would be better preparation for a later graduate degree in AI/ML.

Thanks for the clarification but the first sentence can be interpreted in any way.

Yes I see why it's ambiguous in its wording, but given that they also specifically asked which course between "Computer Science" and "Maths and Computer Science joint honours", both of which are undergraduate courses, would be more useful for studying AI/ML at graduate level, I think it is safe to assume that OP is asking about undergraduate degrees.

Yes, I agree with you.

Which course do you prefer? What are the requirements currently being asked for by the sort of postgrad courses you think you might be going to be interested in? Don't assume it will be something with "computer" in the title just because that sounds the most closely related.

The ML expert I know did his undergraduate degree in maths.
