Researchers in the Department of Statistics were instrumental in setting up the EPSRC SABS R³ CDT that proposed the pilot UNIQ+ programme last year. UNIQ+ proved to be a great success, with almost 200 applicants, and 34 graduates attending.
The University’s UNIQ+ graduate access programme offers paid summer research internships aimed at current undergraduates from areas of low progression to postgraduate study in the UK.
UNIQ+ gives talented UK undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds the opportunity to discover what postgraduate study is like at Oxford through research experience in the University’s state-of-the-art facilities, working alongside our students and staff.
The 2020 programme will run from 6 July for seven weeks (with the exception of Humanities subjects, which will be four weeks).
The Department of Statistics will recruit two graduates for UNIQ+ 2020, while the SABS R³ will be recruiting 6 graduates again this year.
Applications are now open. The deadline is 12 noon on Monday 24 February 2020.
