UNIQ+, which will run from 6 July for seven weeks, gives participants the opportunity to carry out a bioscience-related research project with a DTP research group.

Participants will receive

  • Free accommodation in an Oxford college
  • A stipend of £2500
  • Mentoring from leading academics and current students
  • Training in scientific and professional skills
  • Guidance on applying for graduate courses and scholarship funding
  • Advice on how to improve your CV and career prospects

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.


Applications are free, and open to UK residents who are currently studying, or already have, a degree at undergraduate level in a science-based subject from a UK university with a predicted outcome of 2.1 or more. We're looking for applications from talented individuals who are interested in bioscience research, and whose financial, socioeconomic or other life circumstances may make continuing into postgraduate study a challenge. Full eligibility criteria are available on the UNIQ+ website. Please note that applications for the 2020 programme have now closed.
