What is UNIQ?

UNIQ started as a residential summer school back in 2010. Every year we make changes to improve the support we provide UNIQ students.

  • Three years ago we introduced a new programme called UNIQ Digital alongside our summer school so we could support more students.
  • In 2019, we recruited 50% more students to our academically challenging residential.
  • For the last two years we have ran the UNIQ summer schools online with over 30 academic courses taking place.

UNIQ participants really enjoyed opportunities to

  • meet with Oxford students online
  • explore their favourite subjects with our world class academics
  • take part in our social activities

…..all from comfort of their own homes.

231 UNIQ 2020 students have now received offers from the University of Oxford and we look forward to welcoming them here as Oxford undergraduates in September 2021. Each year 1 in 3 UNIQ students who apply to Oxford get offered a place, as compared to 1 in 5 state school students.

UNIQ 2022 will build on the successes of previous years. The programme starts in April and offers sustained support for students over several months

UNIQ 2022 will offer both an online support programme and an academic residential in Oxford. More information will be available from 10 January. Sign up to our mailing list here.
