It's been a UNIQ year
UNIQ is funded directly by the University of Oxford. It is the largest official university summer school in the UK and has welcomed nearly 6,000 students to Oxford since 2010. This year we met 975 students at our spring and summer schools, and got to know 1000 more online during UNIQ Digital.
April was a busy month in our calendar with the launch of UNIQ Digital. While the rain poured outside, hundreds of students were learning all about Oxford university life from the comfort of their sofas: watching our video college tours and commenting on the forums. Later in the month, team UNIQ grabbed some umbrellas and hurried down to Oxford station to welcome 100 students to the first ever UNIQ Spring event.
Spring in Numbers
July was all about our summer courses which ran back to back until 3 August. 875 students came from all over the country to learn, make new friends and put some of Oxford's most famous colleges to the test. There were trips to some of the University's museums, opportunities to conduct experiments in world class laboratories, private tours of the Bodleian library, and an epic farewell party, where shapes were thrown.
Summer in Numbers
During the summer our Instagram account blew up! We were posting from the libraries, from the colleges, from the tops of buildings and from the ice cream cafe around the corner. To get a flavour of what UNIQ is all about, follow us on instagram.
