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.

UNIQ Spring & Summer Schools

Biology run a spring and summer school every year through the University's UNIQ programme. The courses are aimed at students studying in their first year of further education at UK state schools and colleges.

Students apply for a specific course that aims to give them a realistic view of Oxford student life, and they are invited down to Oxford to stay in a college for the week-long course. 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 Biology course will include visits to Wytham Woods, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and the Botanic Garden.
