UNIQ+ now open for 2020 applications
SABS R³ was one of four D.Phil programmes that supported the pilot UNIQ+ programme last year, which proved to be a great success.
The University’s UNIQ+ graduate access programmes offers paid summer research internships aimed at those 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 programmes will run from 6 July for seven weeks (with the exception of Humanities subjects, which will be four weeks).
SABS R³ will be recruiting 6 graduates again this year.
Applications are now open. The deadline is 12 noon on Monday 24 February 2020.

Today was the last day of the UNIQ+ Summer School—the University of Oxford's first ever postgraduate access programme. The 33 UNIQ+ Students gathered in the morning in the Mathematical Institute, and gave excellent summaries of their research projects, including the six SABS UNIQ+ Students who spent their first two weeks learning about best practices in software engineering. UNIQ+ is an initiative of SABS R³, and we thank one of our industrial partners, Roche, for their support.
