What is NCSS?

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 in the School of IT at the University of Sydney.

NCSS 2015 will run from Sunday 4th to Tuesday 13th January, 2015 (inclusive).

NCSS has been offered in various formats since 1996, when it was initiated by the University's Foundation for Information Technology. This makes 2015 the 20th year of the program.

NCSS is organised by academic staff, alumni and students of the School of Information Technologies. The school is completely residential, with all students staying with NCSS staff in full-board accommodation provided by The Women's College, within the main Camperdown campus of The University of Sydney.

The cost of NCSS is heavily subsidised by our sponsors, allowing us to make the cost per student approximately $400 in 2014.
