To all Y12 students….
If you have several As or A*s at GCSE and are now studying for your A levels you should have a good look at the UNIQ summer school. It’s completely free of charge, it’s open to all UK state school/college students in Year 12, and it’s your chance to see what Oxford is really like.
Next summer 1000 students will attend the summer school for one week. Targeted at students who are self-motivated and working above the average for their school, it aims to provide students with a realistic view of Oxford; of the teaching, the facilities and the people.
UNIQ is a programme of free summer schools held at Oxford University. Students live in an Oxford college, attending lectures, seminars and tutorials. The aim is to give academically able students the opportunity to see if Oxford is for them. Would I fit in? Am I clever enough? Would I enjoy it? These are all questions that, by the end of the week, students will be able to answer for themselves.
The French course runs from July 12th to 18th, and is designed to offer you a taste of studying French at Oxford, and to give you a sense of the unrivalled breadth of our course. Throughout the week, you will have the opportunity to hone your language skills and consolidate your knowledge of French grammar. You will also participate in classes introducing you to an exciting array of topics, ranging from Linguistics and 17th-century tragedy to French-language cinema and 19th-century poetry.
Other week-long courses on offer include German and Spanish, plus one on Beginner Languages offering a taste of what it might be like to study Italian, Russian or Portuguese from scratch. There are also courses in Middle Eastern languages, and on many other subjects in the arts, humanities and sciences.
The course will give you a boost in your sixth-form studies, and provide you with a great introduction to university life. Come and spend a week with us, for free, and find out what we’re all about.
Online applications for the UNIQ summer school are now open. They close on 24 February at 5pm, so please don’t delay.
Further information and access to the online application form is available here.
