The UNIQ Spring and Summer gives first year A-level students, from state schools, a taste of the Oxford undergraduate student experience. They are taught by Oxford academics, attend lectures and labs, and use departmental facilities – just like real undergraduates. They live in an Oxford college for a week, attend lectures and seminars in their chosen subject area, and receive expert advice on the Oxford application and interview process. The timetable also allows plenty of time for social activities; in the evenings they are free to tour the city and sample some of the University's sports and cultural facilities. This year the programme provided opportunities to 1350 young people

Once again UNIQ was supported by researchers across our Neuroscience Community with events and activities taking place at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, the Welcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, the Department of Experimental Psychology and the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG) among others. A big thank you to everyone who took part.
