University of St Andrews
Computer Science: Computers are everywhere. We use mobile phones, TVs and cars that include large amounts of software. Almost everyone has a computer in their home and many people enjoy playing computer games. These systems all rely on advanced computer science. When you study Computer Science, you will learn about the fundamental principles of the science as well as advanced techniques that are used for practical systems development. During the Summer School, you will explore various aspects of Computer Science taught at The University of St Andrews. Through lectures and practical workshops led by academic staff you will get a sense of what it would be like to study Computer Science at degree level.
Mathematics and Statistics: Understanding patterns and structures, and developing the tools with which to analyse them, it the primary focus of all mathematics. Whether the patterns relate to physical or biological phenomena or to the structure of mathematics itself, the primary aim is to describe, categorise, and understand the processes involved. Studying Mathematics and Statistics at the Summer School will give students the opportunity to explore the various aspects of mathematics and statistics taught at The University of St Andrews. Through lectures and practical workshops led by academic staff you will get sense of what it would be like to study Mathematics and Statistics at degree level.
