Meeting Oxbridge Admissions Tutors and Graduates
Learn from and speak with Admissions Tutors and Oxbridge students about entry requirements and what it is really like to study there.

Developing a passion for your subject
Oxbridge Admissions Tutors regard this to be THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of a potential student, with intelligence and exceptional grades no longer being enough. Learn to demonstrate a real passion for your subject through a development plan and reading list that covers a two year time horizon.

Critical Thinking Skills
Learn to review evidence, form a judgment and present a reasoned argument and counter-argument.

Analytical Thinking Skills
Learn to use logic to gather and analyse information in order to draw trends and solve problems.

Speed Reading and Memory Recall skills
Use proven techniques that can help you to work smarter and learn more effectively in the same amount of time.

Communication skills
Going beyond ‘what you say’ to ‘how you say it’. We train you on body language, tone of voice and expressions to develop effective interview techniques.

Interview questions practice
Using your newly developed critical and analytical thinking skills, you will learn how to answer the toughest Oxbridge interview questions. Remember, there is often no right or wrong answer!

Programme Outcomes:

1. You will consider difficult interview questions such as the following:

  • How many grains of sand are there in the world? (Physics, Oxford)

  • If a wife had expressed distaste for it previously, would her husband’s habit of putting marmalade in his egg at breakfast be grounds for divorce? (Law, Cambridge)
