UNIQ+ and UNIQ+ Digital

Applications for the 2021 UNIQ+ and UNIQ+ Digital programmes are now open.

 

The DTP is a community of talented, collaborative and diverse people working to advance scientific knowledge, address global challenges and make a positive impact.   We aim to inspire, enable and support students to achieve their full potential.  UNIQ+ will introduce you to our community and to the wider community in Oxford, and give you the opportunity to experience some of what we offer for yourself.

 

UNIQ+

UNIQ+ will run full time from 5 July 2021 for six weeks and will give participants the opportunity to work in a team of 2-4 students to carry out a bioscience-related research project with a DTP research group.  Please note that due to the present circumstances all of the projects offered in 2021 will be supervised remotely.

  • Mentoring from leading academics and current students;
