Bespoke 1:1
Application Support

Our personalised, 1:1 approach will enable you to create an application that truly reflects your uniqueness and demonstrates the independent thinking skills that Oxford and Cambridge are looking for.

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 demonstrate the necessary knowledge of your subject, but also crucial skills such as analysis, critical thinking, and the development of original ideas.

We 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.


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.

How do we use data?

Oxbridge, Imperial and Medical school applications are very difficult to navigate; a lot of students rely too heavily on the less-informed “intuitions” of those advising them. At Leading Education, we spend an extraordinary amount of time sourcing and analysing data on every facet of an application to give our students the edge and ensure the precision of our advice is razor-sharp. Here are just some of the examples of how we use data:

Layla Barwell

Layla, a student at Dartford Grammar school, was given these analytics to gain a successful place to study history at Cambridge University in 2020.

Using information about her academic profile, we calculated which subject choice had the greatest likelihood of success for her Oxbridge application.

Based on the data from the 1000+ students we have helped, we showed Layla the correlation between the number of books she was reading and her likelihood of gaining an offer.

To ensure that she was on track, we charted Layla's admissions test scores over time and showed her how her progress compared to past offer-holders.

Cross-referencing admissions statistics and demographic information from FOI requests, we provided data analytics on how her choice of college would affect her likelihood of success.

Highly personalized, evidence-based support

At Leading Education, we like to treat university applications as both an art and a science.

The “artists” are our Senior Consultants, who have overseen thousands of applications over many years, and who have developed the crucial and subtle skill of finding and bringing out the unique strengths and distinguishing interests of a candidate, and using that as the basis to strategically build an exceptional application.

As well as the art, our advice is underpinned by science: a staggering amount of ongoing data-driven research into the world of admissions at UK universities. Taking into account multiple variables over many years, we crunch the numbers and help you make the key decisions – both big and small – that will statistically increase your chances of success.

Access Lecture Series 2022

We recognise that most students in UK comprehensive schools are unable to afford private admissions support from companies such as ours. Therefore, we are giving students from non-fee-paying backgrounds the option to take advantage of our services without cost.

The format of the year’s Oxbridge Access Programme will be different to that which has been offered in previous years, where students received a more selective, personalised programme and were required to tutor other students in future years if they were successful. This year, we will be providing a 4-part lecture series free of charge with no expectation of anything in return. Next year, we intend to return to the model that we ran in the past.

All Year 12 students that apply will be admitted. To register please follow the link below:

Success Story in Focus

Sylvia reapplied with Leading Education, having failed to get into Cambridge the first time around by herself. We devised a bespoke plan for her to target her weaknesses, focusing on NSAA Section 2 and applied Maths questions for her interview. We were delighted to hear in January 2020 that she had been accepted by Clare College for Natural Sciences!
