The Department of Computer Science at the University of York has a dedicated schools engagement and outreach programme that aims to engage young people of all ages with computing-based activities. These are offered by members of the department alongside our schools outreach partners. We also offer Computer Science-based work placement opportunities, and provide support for teachers in partnership with the National Centre for Computing Education.
The Department provides opportunities to engage in higher education to everyone who can benefit from it, including activities for teachers in primary and secondary schools to help them encourage their pupils in pursuing a career in computing.
There are opportunities for school groups to visit the University to see some of the research activity that takes place in Computer Science, and members of the department go out to run activities in schools and at organised external events.
We host a range of events on campus to engage with schools throughout the year.
