Other outreach at the University of Oxford

The UNIQ Programme offers free residentials in July and August for Year 12 students studying at UK state schools. There are tailored programmes for students interested in each of the undergraduate programmes offered by MPLS departments. Preference is given to applicants who come from schools and areas with little or no history of successful application to Oxford.

The Oxford Pathways programme gives academically able year 10 students from non-selective state schools a chance to visit Oxford for a taste of what it would be like to study here.

The University runs regular open days and has webpages aimed at teachers who want to help their students consider applying to Oxford.

Oxford University Museum of Natural History offers a range of learning experiences for different audiences through structured sessions or self-guided visits, and provides online learning materials for Key Stage 2 and upwards about fossils, rocks, minerals, insects and animals.

Oxford Botanic Garden and Arboretum offers a range of schools visits.

The History of Science Museum offers a wide ranging programme for different audiences to enjoy and participate in.
