University of Edinburgh
Study two subjects at Edinburgh and pick one to specialise in for an exciting project day! In both subjects, you will work with our renowned team of world-leading academics and current students on both theoretical and practical work in lectures, tutorials, group projects, and exciting lab work.
Computer Science (Informatics): Edinburgh is proud to house Europe’s largest Informatics research centre, and is currently ranked 5th in the UK and top 25 in the world for Computer Science (QS 2022). Computer Science (Informatics) is the study of information, computation and communication in artificial intelligence systems (e.g. computers) and in natural systems (e.g. brains, genes, living cells). Explore a huge variety of topics in exciting interactive classes...you may even get to build your own working robot! Previous summer school topics include cybersecurity, artificial intelligence & machine learning, software engineering, bioinformatics, robotics, and alien language translation.
Biological Sciences: Edinburgh is home to one of the largest biology departments in the UK, and is currently ranked top 5 in the UK and top 25 in the world for biological sciences (QS 2022). 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 & 'skeleton reading', Drosophila genetics, bioluminescent bacteria & water toxicity, embryological development, and immunity & disease.
Join us this summer for an "unforgettable" experience that is "educational, fun and awesome!" (2022 Summer School Graduate feedback).
