University of Edinburgh
The University of Edinburgh has a rich history of teaching mathematics and is currently ranked 5th in the UK for mathematics (QS 2021). As part of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh forms one of the UK's leading research centres in mathematics. You will explore a wide range of mathematical disciplines through a mixture of lectures, tutorial discussions, practical work, and engaging group project work. Our fantastic team of academic staff and students will work with you to explore engaging topics designed to develop your analytical and problem-solving skills, and have fun along the way! Previous summer school topics include Monte Carlo simulations, statistics, machine learning, maths and magic, number theory, integer solutions to Diophantine equations, Markov chains, matrices, primality testing, and differential equations.
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.
