Our Access Scheme is now open for 2013 applications.
The Access Scheme offers a select number of budding Oxbridge applicants a free programme of support. The Scheme gives students the skills and confidence to reflect their true potential at each stage of the application process, from personal statements through to admissions tests and interviews. We support students by offering practical advice based on years of experience and research.
We strongly believe that all applicants should have access to the information and expert preparation that can help strengthen their Oxbridge application. Each year we support 100 students through this Scheme.
All students in receipt of a high, medium or low priority government 16 - 19 bursary (introduced in 2012 to replace EMA) and who are predicted AAA or A*AA at A level (or equivalent) are invited to join our access scheme. If you are unsure as to whether you are eligible for our Access Scheme, please get in touch on 0207 499 2394. Please click here to see whether you are eligible.
