Outreach

There is a strong commitment to outreach at all levels of our Department. All members of staff are encouraged to actively disseminate their research to the public. This is most commonly done via press releases for important papers, in collaboration with the school press office. We run specific training courses and seminars on dissemination.

Open Days

Unlike many other university open days, it is not mandatory to book to attend an Oxford Open Day. Many events are offered on a drop-in basis. However we strongly advise that you check the programme on offer at your subject department and at colleges you are considering as some do require booking for certain events.

UNIQ Summer School

Biological Sciences run a summer school every year through the University's UNIQ programme. The courses are an official summer school programme of the University of Oxford for students studying in their first year of further education.

UNIQ is open to students studying in their first year of further education and who are based at UK state schools/colleges. Students apply for a specific course that aims to give them a realistic view of Oxford student life. UNIQ participants live in Oxford college/annexe for one week in the summer. They attend lectures and seminars in their chosen subject, and workshops about applying to Oxford.  Participants also take part in a variety of social activities in the evenings.

The UNIQ Biological Sciences will run from Monday 9 - 13 July, 2018, and will include visits to Wytham Woods, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and the Botanic Garden.
