The summer schools are UNIQ’s flagship programme. Students come to Oxford for a week, stay in a college, and attend an academic programme during the day and social activities in the evenings. You’ll get first-hand experience of life at university, meet like-minded people and gain deeper understanding of a subject that interests you.
UNIQ Summer lets you follow a full programme of academic sessions, including lectures and labs, throughout the week. You will be taught by Oxford academics and get to use departmental facilities – just like a real undergraduate! In addition to lectures you might be asked to prepare some independent work for a tutorial at the end of the week where you will go through the topic in detail, either individually with a tutor or in a small group.
The academic programmes on UNIQ Summer are demanding, but they are also fun and you’ll get to look at your favourite subject in new and engaging ways. Your UNIQ summer course will give you an insight into what studying at degree level, and at Oxford, is really like.
We run summer courses on over 30 subjects, so there’s plenty to choose from and almost certainly something to suit your interests. Have a look at the summer courses page for more information
We understand that aiming high and applying to top universities like Oxford can seem a little daunting. Throughout your time with us ambassadors and staff will be around to give guidance and answer any questions you might have. There will also be a range of dedicated sessions throughout the week providing information on all aspects of the application process.
It’s not all hard work! Outside of your academic time there will be opportunities to go to a range of social activities and even enjoy some free time.
