Quantum computing: Hands on!

We run two-hour long workshops aimed at A level students that cover the basics of quantum computing.
The slides and the handout are available to download.
If you are interested in enrolling your class please contact Dr. Zlatko Papić at


Additional resources

Q is for Quantum

This book by Terry Rudolph teaches the basics of quantum physics and its use in quantum computing to an audience presumed only to know basic arithmetic.
The author has made the first part of the book available for free on their website.

The theoretical minimum

This series of lecture by Leonard Susskind provides lively explanations of basic concepts and introduces the key fields of quantum mechanics. The content of the lectures has also been edited into a book of the same name,  that supplements it with step-by-step exercises.


Qiskit is an open-source Software Development Kit for working with quantum computers at the level of pulses, circuits, and application modules.
They offer plenty of free resources including a textbook covering quantum algorithms/computation based on Qiskit to help learn:

  1. The mathematics behind quantum algorithms
  2. Details about today's non-fault-tolerant quantum devices
  3. Writing code in Qiskit to implement quantum algorithms on IBM's cloud quantum systems
