Since 2010 UNIQ has been providing in person and, since 2018, digital Summer Schools for State School students in the UK. As a free access programme we prioritise students with good grades from backgrounds that are under-represented at Oxford and other highly selective universities.
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.
This year we are merging UNIQ Digital with the online summer school to offer one UNIQ programme to 2,500 students. UNIQ 2021 takes into account the disrupted learning students have suffered over the past year: the programme starts in April and offers sustained support for students over several months.
Oxford Mathematics together with Oxford Statistics will once again be a big part of UNIQ this year. Our main lectures are on Matrices & Markov Chains. So why not Enter the Matrix? (And if you don't know how to enter then you haven't been born, quite literally if you are in Year 12...).
