National Computer Science School 2024

Location:

UNSW Sydney & University of Melbourne

Date:

January 6
to January 15, 2024

The National Computer Science School (NCSS) is a ten-day summer school for students going into years 11 and 12. NCSS brings together talented young people from around Australia for an intensive course of computer programming and website development at university.

NCSS has been offered in various formats since 1996 and in 2024, we will be running concurrently at the University of Melbourne and at the University of NSW (UNSW).

NCSS is organised by Grok Academy together with our host universities. The school is completely residential, with all students staying with NCSS staff in full-board accommodation provided on campus.

NCSS applications will be accepted from students who will complete Year 11 in 2023, and from exceptionally gifted Year 10 students. Selection of students will be based on academic performance, particularly in the subjects of mathematics and science, and demonstrated interest in computing. Personal qualities, such as community service, and social and teamwork skills will also be taken into consideration.

No prior knowledge of computing is assumed. Students who are not taking computing units of study at school are eligible to apply. Rest assured that students who enter the program as proficient programmers will also find plenty of material to extend their skills.

Applications close 15 September.
