The Young Computer Scientist Programme gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of Computer Science through a series of role-plays, seminars, simulations and Q&A sessions led by a group of experienced computer scientists over 2 days. You can choose to attend the programme either in-person at UCL or ‘Live Online’.
Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the race for the best universities and jobs in computer science, and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your UCAS application.
You can choose to attend the programme either in-person at UCL or ‘Live Online’; the content is the same for both. The programme involves a mixture of interactive simulations, exercises and Q&A sessions.
‘Live Online’: £95/student for one day (you can choose either day 1 or 2), £165/student for both days.
In-Person: £295 for both days (we cannot offer a 1-day-only option for in-person due to Covid-19 prevention measures we have in place)
Places are limited. If 2 or more places are booked students receive a 10% discount. Enter code GROUP10 at checkout to benefit from this.

This programme is for students aged 15-18 who have the passion and ambition to both learn about this career, and start boosting their UCAS/college applications & CVs. If you are a student who is slightly older or younger than our guidelines, then please do get in touch with us to discuss your specific situation.
There is no application process, and you can secure your place simply by clicking “Register Now”. We operate on a first-come first-served basis and programme places are limited; we are usually full a couple of months in advance of the programme date. No prior knowledge or experience is required to join this programme as we build your knowledge from the basics up to more advanced concepts.
The in-person programme will be run with strict Covid-19 prevention measures in place which have been modelled on the government’s guidelines for prevention in educational settings. You can view our measures here. In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is completely cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ programme and be refunded the difference in price.
