Hi, I'm planning to apply for the UNIQ+ programme. Which project(s) are you planning to apply for?

I graduated in July 2021 with a degree in English Literature and History and have applied to Oxford to do the English (1830-1914) MSt. What about you?

Hey guys! I’m also planning on applying for uniq+ for the humanities research projects. I’ve also applied to Oxford for an Mst and am currently finishing my History degree from Exeter. Do you guys have any ideas on how to unify your research interests when applying for three different projects? I’m struggling with how I’m expressing myself 😭

Hi - I'm in a similar boat. I think I'm going to try and talk broadly about the UNIQ+ programme and then do separate paragraphs that address the particular projects, but still refer to broader skillset that would work across the three. I also am going to prioritise the ones that I'm most interested in so that at least most of the space is dedicated to my preferred project.

I hope that helps and best of luck with the application, as well as the rest of your degree!

Hi everyone! I have applied to the UNIQ+ programme and chose three Medical Sciences projects. How are you all feeling about the application process, and what projects are you interested in?

I've also applied to 3 Medical Sciences projects -which ones have you chosen? I thought the personal statement was a bit difficult to write as there was not much information on what to include did anyone else find this?

I'm interested in cancer research, so I chose projects 20, 21, and 30. What about you? I completely agree with you in terms of the personal statement, I wasn't really sure how to structure mine. I tried to talk a little bit about my interest in each of the projects as well as the programme as a whole, but this was quite difficult considering how limited the character count is. There were also many things that I had to leave out of the section about how we meet the eligibility criteria due to the character limit, which was quite frustrating as I felt I needed to explain more.

Oh awesome I hope you are successful! I applied to projects 13, 16, and 25 Yes exactly, 2000 characters per section is not enough to explain everything fully so you have to be really selective about what to include but I did include how I met the eligibility criteria in the second section only briefly as I felt that was what they wanted

Those are great choices! I see that you are interested in neuroscience, then? I wish you the best of luck too. 😊 I explained which criteria I met in the second section and why I think I would benefit from the programme, but I wish I had more characters to explain certain things better. I just hope that the information I chose to include will be good enough... I'm feeling quite anxious about the way they will assess our applications because they will have to compare students with very different backgrounds, life circumstances and experiences. I know that they will prioritise certain candidates, but if there are several applicants who are similar in many aspects, I wonder what they will base their decisions on. At least they increased the number of places this year! 😅

I think they said they expect to inform applicants of the outcome of their application by the beginning of May.

Hey, I guess they base their decisions on who has had more disadvantages and meets more criteria from the list. So, if you have numerous students who have similar grades and live in a POLAR Q1 area, then they would priorise the student that has another disadvantage on top of that like being a care leaver, having a BAME background and studying at a university that is currently not part of the russel group.

Hi, i was planning to apply for the Philosophy - Responsible AI or History - Education and Activism: Women in Oxford projects - but i feel i didn't meet enough of the eligibility criteria so i decided not to apply in the end.

(Sorry my reply is probably irrelevant now but i felt i should have replied haha XD)

Hi - no worries! So did you apply for other projects or did you decide not to apply altogether?

I sent the UNIQ+ admin team an email earlier in the week about when applicants are likely to be informed of the outcome of their applications (and some other questions that I had) and they got back to me just saying that applicants will hear back by the beginning of May. Other than that I've not heard anything either.
