For the second year in a row, the Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR) will welcome under-represented graduate talent to work on several interesting research projects through the University of Oxford’s UNIQ+ programme.
UNIQ+ Research Internships are aimed at talented undergraduates from under-represented groups, who would find continuing into postgraduate study a challenge for reasons other than their academic ability. The seven-week programme, which will run from Monday 3 July to Friday 18 August, will provide successful students with a fantastic insight into postgraduate research.
This year DPIR academic staff (Drs Marnie Howlett, Patrick Quinton-Brown and Ria Ivandic) have developed three interesting projects for UNIQ+ students to work on in the summer. The 2023 Politics and International Relations projects are:
Intergenerational cycle of violence: the effects of war on intimate partner violence (Dr Ria Ivandic)
College accommodation is provided as part of UNIQ+ paid research internships. Furthermore, all three of the Politics and International Relation’s internship opportunities may be funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Please refer to the What is a UNIQ+ Research Internship? page and the eligibility requirements for further details about ESRC-funded placements.
DPIR's Education Manager Jenny Crewe comments: "For a whole host of reasons, access and outreach is much harder to achieve at postgraduate level, so we are really excited to be part of this initiative again this year."
