I am in year 12 in a state school and would like to study Biochemistry at uni. Was looking at applying to UNIQ 2021 for Biochemistry which will probably be online. Was wondering if anyone who attended the Biochemistry online UNIQ this year (2020) would recommend it?

100% worth it - was all online due to covid this year which wasnt ideal but still got a lot out of it, they give you useful advice on applications and the content you learn on uniq is so interesting and will help you decide whether biochem is for you. Uniq is very competitive, 8000 people applied for this year and they accept less than 2000 so it’s definitely worth applying to see if you can get a place. The socials after lessons are really fun, and hopefully you will be able to go in person next year as im sure its even better in oxford!

hey, this may seem specific but do you remember whether or not the online meetings for the UNIQ programme were recorded so you can access them later incase you had any technical difficulties or other problems ?

Yes - all meetings were recorded except social sessions (which were just playing games with your cohort and the ambassador). Academic sessions took place on teams and other sessions eg about student life were on zoom. Have you gotten a place on uniq for this year? Is it online again?

Thank you for replying, Yes i’ve gotten a place for the UNIQ medicine course and it’s online. i was just asking because around the same time as this programme i also have a sutton trust summer school (nottingham) for medicine and that is also online.
