Do please be aware that we are unable to accommodate teachers, family, or friends, as space is limited. Please also note that we are unable to accommodate drop-in visitors - all visitors must have pre-booked their attendance beforehand.
Amongst other activities, the History of Art Department is involved with UNIQ, a programme of free summer schools at Oxford University for students studying in their first year of further education in UK state schools/colleges. There are currently over 30 courses offered, with students applying for a specific course. The aim of the programme is to give a realistic view, both academically and socially, of Oxford student life.
Students who apply for the History of Art UNIQ course will live in an Oxford college/annexe and attend a week-long programme consisting of lectures and classes taught by tutors and museum staff. These lectures and classes will often take place in front of the objects being discussed within museums and galleries in Oxford. Students will also have the opportunity to use Oxford’s numerous libraries for project work and meet with current History of Art undergraduates, explore colleges offering the BA History of Art degree, and attend sessions offering advice on applying to Oxford. Further information about the UNIQ programme, including details on how to apply, can be found here: http://www.uniq.ox.ac.uk/
To get an idea of what to expect from the programme, Nathan Stazicker (former History of Art undergraduate and UNIQ participant) wrote a blog post about UNIQ which can be found here: https://oxfordarthist.wordpress.com/2016/08/15/history-of-art-uniq-summer-school-2016/
