Discover a UNIQ way of life

Do you have good school grades but are not sure if Oxford, or any university is right for you? Or perhaps you’re generally feeling uncertain about the future? Our free UNIQ programme might be just what you need.

Through one of our four night, five day residential courses in either spring or summer, you can discover student life for yourself. Living just like our students, you will stay in an Oxford college, attend academic and admissions sessions during the day and relaxed social activities in the evenings.

You will be able to quiz student helpers and share thoughts on any aspect of student life: all whilst getting to know one of the most student-friendly cities in the UK. By the end of UNIQ you should have a real understanding of university life and feel in a much better position to make your upcoming big decisions.

UNIQ helps with university admissions

During your Oxford residential, you will receive lots of admissions advice so you can make a competitive application to any university, wherever you decide to apply.

Some of this advice may even be from our admissions tutors and will specifically aim to support preparation for admission to Oxford. We also provide advice on writing personal statements and run workshops on how to prepare for admissions tests and interviews.

Last year, 40% of UNIQ participants who applied to study at Oxford were offered a place, compared to an average success rate for UK applicants of 20%.
