University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh is proud to house Europe’s largest Informatics research centre, and is currently ranked 24th in the world for Computer Science (5th in UK) (Times H.E. 2020). 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). Throughout the digital summer school, you will work with world-leading academics and current students on a variety of topics from theoretical to strong application, in computer science, artificial intelligence, software engineering, cognitive science and informatics. You will deepen your understanding of the subject and develop new skills by taking part in interactive online classes, independent study and practical group project work. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
Edinburgh’s Biological Sciences summer school gives you the opportunity to join one of the UK’s top 5 universities and the world’s top 25 universities for the subject (QS 2020). Biological Sciences is a flexible subject covering topics ranging from exploring molecular structures, to understanding how genes work, the development and behaviour of microorganisms, plants and animals, their evolution, and their environmental interactions and impacts. You will explore various core topics throughout the digital summer school with world-leading academics and recently trained young scientists. In addition to interactive online classes and group project work, you will even complete practical work from home! You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
