Designed for talented individuals from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds at postgraduate level, the University’s UNIQ+ internships offer research experience with Oxford’s world-class academic community through seven-week projects in a wide range of subject areas and departments.

The internships include work experience on a research project under the supervision of academic staff from Oxford's community of world-leading researchers. Included in the projects available for 2023 entry is 'Interaction of supporting cells (fibroblasts) and macrophages in cancer', overseen by innate tumour immunology group leader, Dr Eileen Parkes.

Eligible students will need to be ordinarily resident in the UK and studying in at least the second year of (or have graduated from) an undergraduate course in the UK or Ireland. They will also need to meet at least one of the key eligibility criteria from a list designed to identify applicants who are less likely to access postgraduate education due to socio-economic and financial circumstances.
