Undergraduate Study


Update on coronavirus (COVID-19)

In light of the latest advice about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all outreach activities and events organised by Cambridge Admissions Office have been cancelled until the end of August 2020.

We are committed to providing prospective applicants with information about the collegiate University, its courses, and the admissions process. We are looking at opportunities we can offer virtually, as well as the possibility of running some events later in the year. We will update the website with further information once this is available and, for specific widening participation programmes, make direct contact with schools and students affected.

For information about particular events, please check the relevant webpage or contact the event organiser for the most up-to-date information.

We apologise for the inconvenience and any disappointment that this may have caused and we hope to be able to welcome you to an event in Cambridge in the future.

Computer Science is about creating the future.  We are an interdisciplinary subject that embraces a wide variety of other fields, from Psychology and Linguistics to Maths and Electronics.  We study and develop the science and technology of modern computing and set our students up to be at the forefront of future innovations.  In the Computer Science Summer School we aim to expose students to this range of topics within the subject.  Practical problem solving is interspersed with detailed lectures on specific areas and more general lectures from experts within each field, giving students an overview of the discipline.  We also give students experience of the Cambridge system first hand with group challenges followed by a supervision on the same material.  Although this is a hands-on school, no prior knowledge of Computer Science or programming is required.
