Understand the hardware and software underpinning modern technology

How often do you find yourself treating your smartphone or other technology like it’s magic? You don’t know how it works; you just accept that it does.

With Oxford Royale Academy’s Tech and Coding programmes, you can unravel the mystery and learn exactly how our tech gadgets work, from the scientific principles underpinning them, to the hardware used to build them, to the code that runs on them.

The insights you’ll gain won’t just be valuable for your future academic work and career, but will also give you a much deeper understanding of the technology that affects so much of our lives.

Find out more about careers in tech

It’s clear that getting to grips with tech and coding can significantly boost your career prospects. But it’s not the case that you can write an app and just wait for the money to roll in.

Oxford Royale Academy’s expert teaching staff can talk you through possible careers in tech and how you can access them, whether you’d like to be an employee at a tech company (or the tech guru elsewhere), or whether you have dreams of founding your own start-up. By the end of your time with us, you’ll have a good idea of the next steps to take towards your ideal career in tech.

Explore where future technology might lead us

The pace of technological change seems unlikely to slow down. At our summer school, you’ll find out what’s happening at the cutting-edge of tech, and have the opportunity to discuss what you think future technology might look like – and what consequences that could have for our society.

If you’re excited – or nervous – about what a world with enhanced facial recognition, sophisticated deepfake technology and even artificial intelligence might look like, you’ll get to debate this with your peers from all across the world, enhancing your debating skills and enabling you to learn more about what future technology could do.

Enhance your understanding with hands-on activities

Your time studying Tech and Coding with Oxford Royale Academy won’t just leave you more knowledgeable about the theory behind modern tech – you’ll also gain plenty of practical skills with us. That could be building and programming your own robot, making your own app, designing your own game or learning how to write in several programming languages, to make an interactive website.

Across all programmes, there’s an emphasis on hands-on, interactive learning. This helps students develop new skills, engages different learning styles, encourages team working and, above all, is a fun and interesting way to learn.
