Current Events for School Groups at St Hilda's

UNIQ 2019

UNIQ offers an opportunity to learn about Oxford life by being fully immersed in it. You will go behind the college gates, into lecture theatres, and will have access to Oxford's top academics. There are courses on over 30 subjects to choose from. Applications are open until 11.00pm 28 January 2019.

The UNIQ Residential Programme will be at St Hilda's from 7–11 April 2019. For these five days, you will stay in College, attend an academic programme during the day, and take part in social activities in the evenings. You will be taught by Oxford academics, attend lectures and labs, and use departmental facilities – just like a real undergraduate! In addition to lectures, you might be asked to prepare some independent work for a tutorial at the end of the week where you will go through the topic in detail, either individually with a tutor or in a small group. The UNIQ academic programmes are demanding, but they are also fun and you’ll get to look at your favourite subject in new and engaging ways. Your UNIQ course will give you an insight into what studying at degree level, and at Oxford, is really like.  There are also a range of dedicated sessions that provide information on every aspect of the application process. You can hear from some student participants and find out more about how to apply.
