Develop a pre-university research project in Artificial Intelligence
Did you know that artificial intelligence is a discipline rarely explored in typical high schools? Yet AI is a technology revolutionising computer science, which has a direct impact on the environments in which we live.
The Artificial Intelligence Oxbridge Online Research Programme will allow you to explore different architectural styles in addition to developing fundamental technical drawing skills.
What is the Oxbridge Online Research Programme?
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme (‘OORP’) is designed for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.
Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic from Oxford or Cambridge University.
This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of an Oxbridge degree. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!
I have made lots of friends who I plan to stay in contact with, and the program has improved my mathematical knowledge and my determination and desire to succeed.
1:1 Tutoring From Expert Academics
Students on the Oxbridge Online Research Programme will develop key skills essential for success at higher education.
Independent Study & Research Skills
Oxford and Cambridge put huge emphasis on the importance of self-study and development, and this course will help you learn more about how best to research and achieve your goals
The research project will culminate either in a dissertation-style essay or a complex presentation. Both formats will require you to be able to present your work to a high-quality, including how to frame arguments, analyse and reference appropriately.
Oxbridge Teaching Experience
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme provides a unique opportunity to learn from expert academics, and receive top-quality tuition, similar to undergraduates studying in Oxford and Cambridge.

How It Works
Receive A Personalised Programme Tailored To Your Goals
1. Submit Your Enrolment
Once you have submitted your enrolment and paid a deposit, you will be send a booking confirmation asking for more information on your academic background and goals.
2. Be Matched With One Of Our Expert Tutors
Using your academic background form, our team will match your profile with one of our expert tutors from Oxford or Cambridge University.
3. Receive Your Course Induction Pack
Once your tutor has been found, timetable confirmed and full fees received, you will receive final instructions containing details about your programme, such as a course overview, how to access your virtual classroom, as well as any additional material from your tutor.
4. Start Your Course
Choose from a one-day intensive, 2 or 10-week programme with 1:1 tutorials each week. You will also be required to research and prepare your project in your own time.
At the end of the course, your academic research project will be independently assessed and you will receive a certificate of completion, as well as a detailed evaluation from your tutor.
Sample Artificial Intelligence Research Projects
Module 1 - Ethics of AIThis module will discuss the ethical questions that are currently debated with the rise of AI and its growing reliance in the modern world. Will AI replace human workers? Will it spread or help tackle the rise of fake news and misinformation? Put your scholar's hat on to debate the hottest topics of the century.
Module 2 - Applications of AILearn the implications and applications of AI in different industries, from medicine to the social sciences and humanities. Which industries benefited most and what new jobs has AI created - all of this you will find out in this module.
Module 3 - AI and Machine LearningYou will explore the fascinating history of AI research and the initial experiments that seemed promising but ultimately turned out to be dead ends. Then, you’ll turn to the probabilistic basis of machine learning and neural networks, demystifying this arcane-sounding technique and its many variations.
Module 4 - AI and GamificationIn the 1990’s IBM successfully defeated chess grandmaster Gary Kasperov, a feat that shocked the world. IBM’s machine, deep blue employed artificial intelligence to defeat Kasperov. But what is artificial intelligence? What does it mean to be rational? And how does this tie in with playing games? Further, why do we need artificial intelligence, and what does it provide us with? A commonly misunderstood question. In this topic, you will consider algorithms such as MiniMax, simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, and monte carlo methods, and how they can be used for optimisation problems.
