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 world-leading academics and recently trained young scientists in lectures, tutorials, fascinating group project work, and practical laboratory experiments.
Mathematics: Edinburgh has a rich history of teaching mathematics and is currently ranked 5th in the UK for mathematics (QS 2022). As part of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh forms one of the UK's leading research centres in mathematics. Previous summer school topics include Monte Carlo simulations, machine learning, maths within magic, number theory, integer solutions to Diophantine equations, probabalistic & positional games (incl. Markov chains), graph theory, primality testing, statistics, and differential equations.
Physics: Currently ranked 1st in Scotland and 5th in the UK for physics & astronomy (QS 2022), Edinburgh hosts one of the leading physics departments in the UK. With innovative teaching labs 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. Previous summer school topics include particle physics, astrobiology, dark matter, computational physics, exoplanets, and statistical physics.
Join us this summer for an "unforgettable" experience that is "educational, fun and awesome!" (2022 Summer School Graduate feedback).
