The IoC Summer School at the University of Exeter offers undergraduate and postgraduate students of non-computer based degrees an opportunity to learn and practice their digital skills, through a combination of lectures and programming laboratories.

The 2020 Summer School will be structured into 3 separate 1-week blocks to support the development of students’ computer thinking and social data analytics skills.

Each block is run separately and you are able to attend any or all weeks as you choose.
