iOS App Programming and Web Development 

Learn to build apps and websites in colleges of the University of Oxford this summer on Oxford Royale Academy's iOS App Programming and Web Development summer course for adults.

Course Summary

How many times have you found yourself saying “There’s an app for that”? Apps - and iOS apps in particular - have become so vital to our daily lives that it’s difficult to imagine life without them. This makes them the most exciting areas in which to grow your knowledge and skills – and this course is the ideal way to get started.

The iOS App Programming and Web Development course is a fascinating and highly relevant programme designed for gap year students, undergraduates, and others who wish to learn how to construct cutting-edge smartphone apps and websites.

Time spent on this course will give students a deeper understanding of these technologies which have become so fundamental to daily life, and will equip them with new knowledge and skills that have the potential to lead to a lucrative career, or to supercharge their own start-up business. Even if students don’t target a career in tech, the course will provide a useful foundation that will come in handy for a wide range of careers.

What to expect from the iOS App Programming & Web Development course

This course will focus heavily on iOS Application Programming. It is dedicated to teaching Swift programming, which is the new, powerful and popular language for iOS. Students will become proficient with syntax, object-oriented principles, memory management, functional concepts and more, resulting in a competent and independent use of Swift. The course will ultimately progress to teach students about iOS App Development with Swift specialisation.

Course Outcomes

By the end of the course, students will have:

  • Explored XCode basics, Core iOS and CocoaTouch
  • Programmed their own app to perform a specific set of functions
  • Tested and streamlined their app to make it as user-friendly as possible
  • Examined HTML and CSS for websites
  • Built their own website
