Access scheme programmeOur Access Scheme is now open. Apply now for free, expert support for your application to Oxford or Cambridge.

Oxbridge Applications support 120 students each year through our Access Scheme, open to all students who attend a state or non-fee paying school. The Access Scheme is designed to help students who may not otherwise be supported in their Oxbridge applications, to ensure these students have access to the opportunities and knowledge that will allow them to demonstrate their true potential to Oxbridge admissions tutors.

  • Admissions test feedback: students will have access to admissions tests required for their course and receive personalised feedback from admissions test experts

Throughout the scheme, students will have on-going email and telephone support from our dedicated Oxbridge consultants in the Oxbridge Applications offices.
