The IoC brings together Universities, industry and other partners to enhance digital skills across the UK.

​Exeter is one of 25 universities nationwide invited to be a part of the consortium. The University’s involvement will be conducted by world-leading experts from Computer Science, the Graduate School of Education, the Q-Step Centre and its new Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (IDSAI).

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 2019 Summer School was structured in 3 separate 1-week blocks to support the development of students’ computer thinking and social data analytics skills.
