Oxford University UNIQ Summer Schools

Several Oxford University UNIQ Summer Schools have successfully taken place over the last couple of months with participants reporting what a great experience they had.

UNIQ summer schools are designed to help high achieving A-Level students aged 17/18 years old and from diverse backgrounds to experience life as an undergraduate and consider applying to take up a course at Oxford when they may not have considered applying previously.

Two of the Summer Schools which have taken place are:
