FREE Access Programme for Oxford 

Free access programme for Y12 students at Oxford University

New additions to our free widening access programme, UNIQ. Previously a standalone summer school, in 2018 UNIQ will expand to include a Spring Conference and a digital learning portal enabling up to 2000 students to take part.

The programmes are academically intensive and challenging but also a lot of fun. Importantly, every programme run by UNIQ is completely free of charge; the University covers all accommodation, food and travel expenses and any associated academic or social activity costs. A great many of our previous participants have gone on to make successful applications to Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities.

UNIQ is open to applications from UK state school and college students in their first year of further education. Detailed eligibility and selection criteria can be found on our website. We particularly welcome applications from students who:

·          Have the potential to perform well academically and attained good GCSE grades

·          Live in areas where young people are less likely to progress to higher education

·          Where there is a greater degree of low socio-economic status households

By taking part, UNIQ participants:

·         Receive current advice on all aspects of Oxford admissions

·         Gain confidence in their own abilities

·         Are better equipped to submit strong applications to competitive universities

An electronic copy of the brochure is available online UNIQ Prospectus

Applications open at 10am on Thursday 14th December and close at 11pm on Wednesday 31st January.
