Knowledge Building

Top universities expect students to be able to demonstrate knowledge of their subject far beyond what they have learned in school.

Our tutors will help you develop this through a world-class course covering important texts, ideas, and problems in your subject, allowing you to stand out from the crowd with a level of knowledge that would rival most undergraduates!

Personal Statement

Our tutors will help you select and develop complex and thought-provoking topics for your personal statement. This will ensure that you have demonstrated the necessary knowledge of your subject, but also crucial skills such as analysis, critical thinking, and the development of original ideas.

Our Tutors will help you produce multiple drafts, offering you sentence-level critiques and suggestions, thus helping you refine your ideas to an exceptional standard.

Admissions Tests

Admissions tests for Oxford, Imperial and the medical schools are designed to be difficult. We will help you master the techniques, skills and practices you need to achieve a high score.

On average, students improve their scores by 21% through our training, significantly increasing their chances of being invited to interview and, ultimately, being made an offer.

Interviews

Through our interview skills training, you will gain unique insights into how Oxbridge assesses interviews, as well as tips on body language, thinking skills, verbal communication and mental models for answering different types of questions.

Mock-interviews will give you the opportunity to put this advice into practice, developing and honing the skills needed to maximise your chances of success.
