School Of Coding

Immerse Education is proud to be partnering with School Of Coding, whose aim is to inspire and excite students across the UK about the possibilities of studying computer science.

Recently featured on BBC News, School Of Coding aims to inspire students and create future tech leaders with fantastic educational, hands-on workshops. 

Our Career Insights students have the opportunity to explore coding with School of Coding, where they will learn about the use of coding using real-world examples and explore computer science as a branch of the vast and ever-growing engineering career path.

Our Alumni says

Being at Cambridge was an experience like no other. I chose to attend this programme because I wanted to develop my abilities in coding and see whether I could handle the challenges of computer science. My favourite part of the lessons was being able to discuss different ways to solve problems in code and be able to look at a way to fix an error from a different perspective. I really enjoyed being able to work on mini coding projects along the way too. Learning in-depth about a subject and then having to apply that knowledge was the most beneficial aspect of the programme. I had the responsibility of producing a piece of work and that really helped me to collate all the notes I had made and really consolidate everything I had learnt.
