Study Emerging Technologies with Oxford Summer Courses

Emerging Technologies Summer School

How will our world look in 10 years’ time? In 25 years? Technology is continually altering the world we live in at a pace unrivalled throughout history. New discoveries will affect the global economy, change politics and transform our culture. Looking around us today, we see the rise of Machine Learning and Big Data informing businesses, the cultural shift towards digital and mobile that powers App Development and Digital Marketing. Though some fields will take years to fully develop, others are already dominating the market. Future careers will be built around technologies barely past the point of conception, making it crucial for you to understand their potential now. Join us as we explore what drives these advancements; from the aspirations of AI and app development to the economics of sustainable design, venture capital and investment.

Courses

At Oxford Summer Courses we are committed to the best academic experiences and to the personalised learning that has made Oxford a global academic force. So while all of our tutors are at the top of their fields depending on your age you'll be taught in slightly different ways. We use small group seminars to ensure that you get greater attention than you could elsewhere. On top of that if you're aged 16-17 or 18-24 then you'll receive weekly tutorials from leading academics mirroring the teaching method that makes Oxford a world-renowned university. Choose your Emerging Technologies course below:

18-24 years

  • 2 and 4 week courses available
  • Cambridge University accommodation
  • tutorials & group seminars
  • Breakfast and dinner included
The Emerging Technologies summer course for 18-24 year olds is taught through four seminars and one supervision study per week. During the weekly supervision study, students will produce an essay which puts what is learned in seminars into action, and expert staff will give you comprehensive feedback on your arguments and writing style.

This course will introduce you to the emerging technologies of today, covering such disciplines as Machine Learning, A.I., Programming & App Development, Design & 3D Printing and Digital Marketing. In each topic, you will explore the circumstances that gave rise to these, the questions they aim to address and how they impact our modern world – both right now and in the future. In discussing the commercial as well as the cultural impact of these technologies, you will also develop an understanding of the considerations behind venture capital & investment and what transforms a clever idea into a ground-breaking technology.
