The 2017 UNIQ summer schools will see the University of Oxford host over 850 students from across the United Kingdom on 5 day residential programmes in July and August. (Sunday to Friday).
UNIQ is an access programme with goals and targets linked to the University's OFFA agreement targets (2 and 3), We give preference to high-performing students who display a low socio-economic status, and who live in postcode areas in which we would expect fewer young people to go on to higher education. In 2016 this accounted for 93% of attending students and we are aiming to increase this for our 2017 schools.

UNIQ is provided to students free of charge and is funded directly by the University of Oxford. It is the largest official summer school of the University and has welcomed over 5,000 students since 2010.
Places are very competitive with over 5,500 applications received each year and applicants are selected by the Widening Access team and academics of the University on a subject basis. Students attend lectures, seminars and practicals (often taught by some of Oxford’s top academics), all of which are brought together at the end of the week through presentations and tutorials. 

2017 marks the eighth year of UNIQ, and will see over 30 subjects offered across a diverse range of disciplines.
We work with academics from across the University to offer both large popular courses, notably Medicine, Law or Physics, together with the lesser known but equally important subjects such as Classics, History of Art and Egyptology.

The summer school is designed to test a student’s ability and to challenge their understanding of a subject. The week is an intense experience of non-stop academic studies during the day, mixed with key social experiences in the evening. The students attending build long-lasting friendships with others who have similar interests to them. We also believe that students learn more about their subject whilst with us than any other summer school experience.
