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!
The School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh is one of the leading Physics departments in the UK. With innovative teaching labs on campus and the UK-leading Royal Observatory nearby, Edinburgh is the perfect place to explore all areas of physics from the smallest particles, to the structure of the universe. Edinburgh is currently ranked 1st in Scotland and 5th in the UK for physics and astronomy (QS 2021). You will work with academics and current students to explore a wide range of fascinating topics through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, practical laboratory experiments, and engaging group projects. Previous summer school topics include particle physics, astrobiology, dark matter, computational physics, relativity, statistical physics, exoplanets, and physics of the universe.
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.
