Visiting Peking Students
Information for summer research visitors in 2018.
Summer Research Visitor Programme - Peking University Computer Science to Edinburgh School of Informatics
We look forward to welcoming students from Peking University's Computer Science department to Edinburgh for an intensive research experience this summer.
Successful applicants will join one of our world-leading research groups for the summer.
The core programme will run for 8 weeks, from 5 July through 29 August. Accommodation will be arranged (see below) in University halls of residence. One of our PhD students from China will be available to help with settling in to Edinburgh on arrival, and for general help throughout the summer.
Before applying, the first step is to identify two or three projects that interest you and that fit with your background and experience. Possible project directors and topics (follow the links) are listed below.
Please do not contact the project director directly at this stage - send all queries to Dr Maria Wolters (WeChat: mariawolters), the programme coordinator.
Participants will stay in four- or five-bedroom flats in a University building near the Informatics Forum. These flats are self-catered, you are responsible for your own meals. The cost of accommondation will be approximately £900 for nine weeks (2 July through 2 September). Students should not attempt to book these rooms through the University, we will take care of that and let you know the exact cost.
The University charges bench fees of £800 for the programme, which gives you access to our world class computing and research facilities.
