Our summer courses are intensive 3-week programs (7+ hours/day) involving hands-on tutorials developed and taught by leading experts. Students are placed into TA-led groups of 10-20 students using the neuromatch algorithm, which matches students based on common interests, timezone, and their preferred language. They receive personalized support as they work through hands-on tutorials and collaborate on course projects.
In order to capture all aspects of traditional summer schools, students will also be offered to be mentored by professors in the field, professional development seminars, career panels, and opportunities to virtually socialize with their fellow students.
All of our course materials are freely available to use in your own courses, teaching experiences, and other content as all of our materials have a CC-BY license.
Please note that due to legal and liability restrictions, we are unable to accommodate students or teaching assistants who are under the age of 18.
Check the Roles page for more info about students, teaching assistants, and mentors.
We offer two courses: Computational Neuroscience and Deep Learning.
In addition to a brand-new 2 weeks virtual summer school within the Climatematch Academy.
Traditional summer schools can be expensive (~$5,000 for a three-week course), but Neuromatch promises to be always affordable while still ensuring our teaching assistants get paid. To do this, we charge a much lower, regionally adjusted fee, and fee waivers for students that need them without any impact on their admission.
While Neuromatch is supported by generous donations from a variety of foundations and industry partners, we strive to make the program sustainable through tuition fees, which are used to pay our teaching assistants. We do not want fees to be a barrier for anybody, so these fees can be waived, but if you can pay even part of your fee, this is welcome. There are even opportunities to pay more than your fee if you would like to help subsidize fee waivers for other students with less financial means than yourself.

Climatematch Academy (CMA) is a wide-reaching and brand-new summer school. It's an inclusive and approachable program aimed to introduce computational methods for climate science. The existing climate science research community severely underrepresents the global population that will be impacted by climate change. CMA strives to create a globally diverse climate sciences community, trained in cutting-edge techniques to access and analyze open-source modeled and observational climate data.
CMA offers a two-week program involving hands-on tutorials developed and taught by leading experts following the successful Neuromatch Academy format. Students will also be offered mentoring from experts, professional development seminars, career panels, and opportunities to virtually socialize with their fellow students.
