We are delighted to announce that two of our Y12 students have successfully applied and gained a place on the 2020 UNIQ programme run by the University of Oxford.
The UNIQ course is designed to give students a taste of the Oxford undergraduate student experience. Ben and Mark will live in an Oxford college for a week, attend lectures and seminars in their chosen subject areas of mathematics and physics, and receive expert advice on the Oxford application and interview process.
Some of this advice will be from Oxford admissions tutors and will specifically aim to support preparation for admission to Oxford. Last year, 40% of UNIQ participants who applied to study at Oxford were offered a place, compared to an average success rate for UK applicants of 20%.
Both boys are currently studying A Levels in mathematics, further mathematics and physics at the UTC. Mark is also studying an additional A Level in chemistry. They both hope to apply to study a degree at the University of Oxford, therefore the experience of the UNIQ programme will be an invaluable opportunity to gain an insight into the application process and life at the university.
Congratulations on your success!
