Students from the School of Computing can apply for free places on immersive summer schools in France. The three-week courses, which are taught in English, each explore a different theme in depth.

The topics available this year are:

  • Artificial intelligence and robotics
  • Augmented reality
  • Blockchain
  • Internet of Things
  • Launch your own IT start-up
  • Smart cities
  • Sport and technology
  • Video games

Last year two School of Computing students had a productive summer, learning about the Internet of Things (IoT); Waliid Abdi and Anthony Onwuzurike took part in the summer school at the Epitech campus in Paris.

Waliid said; ‘We had a really interesting time, not only working on an IOT project, but also exploring France. We were learning alongside students from all over the world including Russia and India so learned a lot about their cultures. We had French lessons daily and also had lots of social experiences such as BBQs, a Seine cruise and a visit to Disneyland. If any student is thinking of whether to apply, I would recommend they do!’

There are two free summer school places for Kent students. They are suitable for first and second-year undergraduates in the School of Computing (Canterbury or Medway). Students need to apply by 15 May.
