University of Edinburgh
Chemistry has been taught at The University of Edinburgh since 1713; that's over 300 years of fundamental contributions to chemistry theory and practice! As one of the top 10 UK universities for chemistry (QS 2021), our degree programmes reflect the breadth and diversity of the many global challenges that chemistry has a central role in solving, such as climate change, health and the environment. Previous summer school topics include medicinal chemistry, smartphone spectroscopy, saving the environment, chemistry in household items, and lots of hands-on experiments! You will explore the many facets of chemistry through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, engaging group projects, and laboratory experiments. Our renowned team of academic staff and current students will work with you to explore various topics designed to develop your analytical and problem-solving skills, and have fun along the way!
Edinburgh is home to one of the largest biology departments in the UK, and is currently ranked one of the top 5 universities in the UK and top 20 universities in the world for biological sciences (QS 2021). Biological sciences explores the study of living organisms, covering everything from the interactions of animals in their environment, to how genes are expressed. With such a broad scope, there is something for everyone. Previous summer school topics include human evolution, Drosophila genetics, bioluminescent bacteria and water toxicity, embryological development, and immunity and disease. You will work with world-leading academics and recently trained young scientists in lectures, tutorials, fascinating group project work, and practical laboratory experiments.
You will also have the opportunity to try out several other subjects during the subject taster sessions, which reflects the flexibility of the Scottish higher education system.
