Oxford is a collegiate university, consisting of the central University and colleges. The central University is composed of academic departments and research centres, administrative departments, libraries and museums. Oxford was ranked first in the world in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2016-2017.

Oxford University is running a pilot summer school with the Sutton Trust to help maximise our engagement with students living in educationally disadvantaged areas and we particularly welcome applications from students living in rural and coastal areas. The pilot will offers an opportunity for students to gain experience of a wider range of subjects offered by the University and will run alongside Oxford’s established UNIQ residential summer programme.

Subject overview

The biochemistry course is the ultimate opportunity to immerse yourself in all things Biochemistry and everything that Oxford has to offer you. There is no better way to work out whether Biochemistry is right for you than to dive in at the deep end and spend a week balancing a new subject and a new city. During the week, students will also be able to explore the fascinating field of Oncology, a subject only offered at graduate level at the University of Oxford. Whilst it is not a subject that can be studied at an undergraduate level, sixth formers who are interested in a career in medical research will find this an engaging course and will leave with a greater understanding of cancer and its treatment.
