Oxbridge applications

Cambridge university

Oxford and Cambridge are among the world’s most renowned universities, for good reason: few other institutions can compete with the scope and quality of the teaching and research that has for centuries made these two names synonymous with excellence. Unsurprisingly, Oxbridge graduates are highly sought-after by employers and many 18 and 19 years olds from all over the world dream of securing a place at one or the other. Entrance to both is notoriously competitive, with over 34,000 applicants vying for only 8000 places across the universities. To distinguish between candidates Oxford and Cambridge demand the highest level of academic achievement, and ruthlessly filter applicants through a range of examinations and interviews aimed at testing the limits of students' critical and analytical abilities.

UK Study Centre has a long and proven track record of guiding prospective students to places at Oxbridge. Every year our consultants provide expert advice and support across a wide range of subjects — from Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic to Zoology. We have extensive experience of the application process to both Oxford and Cambridge, and our Oxbridge graduate consultants will:

  • Help you to decide which university, college and subject you would like to apply to
  • Advise you on further reading and work experience to strengthen your application
  • Guide you in preparing your personal statement
  • Provide you with tutoring by an Oxbridge graduate from your course
  • Advise on interview technique and invite you to mock interviews with graduates in your subject

UK Study Centre’s Oxbridge applications are overseen by Oenone (Nonny), a highly experienced teacher, writer and careers consultant who has spent many years coaching and advising students on all aspects of school and university, from how to organise revision to how to write the perfect personal statement. She has five children of her own, three of whom have gone to Cambridge, one to King’s College London, and the fifth to Oxford. All five won music scholarships to prestigious independent schools followed by choral scholarships at university.
