If you are looking to apply to Oxford, Cambridge or any of the other 22 top UK Universities that make up the Russell Groups and feel that you may need help with your UCAS form or any parts of the application procedure then this course may be of benefit to you. This course can be taken in conjunction to the other courses in this website or can be taken as a stand alone course.
Whilst the support and guidance given at the schools are excellent many students especially those from abroad may feel they may need some more personal help with all the processes in applying to the Oxford, Cambridge or any of above Universities. With a small group of students and time for one to one advice with our personal tutors who are hand picked and have attended these Universities they will go through all questions and help you.
OXBRIDGE INTERVIEW PREPARATION DATES
The application deadline for Oxbridge and most courses in Dentistry, Medicine and Veterinary Science should be in by 15th October 2017, 18:00 (UK time). If you have been fortunate enough to be invited to Oxbridge for an interview (that traditionally occurs in early December), this course aims to help prospective applicants to Oxford and Cambridge Universities with information, techniques and importantly the confidence to make the nerve wracking process a little less daunting.
Whilst there is no crystal ball to predict exactly what questions a candidate may expect, this course aims by using subject specific tutors, all who have been through the interview process themselves a range of questions to test candidates. The process will be an invaluable as we will provide one to one interviews with feedback to simulate the important interview date.
Aim Of The Course
- build confidence
- provide a range of questions both general and subject specific asked at interviews
