Admissions to Oxford and Cambridge are increasingly competitive. For international applicants they are also statistically more difficult: success rates are as low at around 11%, year on year.
Through schools, we are able to provide students with accessible support when applying as internationals for these world-famous institutions, as well as for the top UK medical and law schools. We draw upon extensive experience to offer a tailored programme that will help you to maximise your chances of winning a place.
Since 1999, we have supported students in over 120 countries, built a network of Oxbridge-graduate tutors based overseas, and conducted extensive annual research on International applications. By linking up with international organisations such as COBIS, ECIS and BSME, as well as working closely with schools worldwide, we are dedicated to helping you and your students understand the process of applying to Oxford or Cambridge, and how to put in a strong, competitive application.

We also provide hands-on support for teachers and schools who have students applying to Oxbridge or Medical schools. We can help you support your students through every stage of the application process – from deciding which university, college and course to apply to and drafting a Personal Statement, through to preparing for Admissions Tests, expanding your grasp of undergraduate study and preparing for the crucial Oxbridge interview. At each stage, we can work with you to give you the benefit of our extensive research and experience of what Oxbridge Admissions Tutors are looking for, taking into account your strengths and areas for improvement. This support will help you grow your students and show evidence of your true potential at each point in your application.
Private Consultation Concourse
We will send a Senior Consultant to run a series of Private Consultations with our experts in your school.
Conducted privately with a student and their family, the Consultations begin with a mock interview, and help each student build a strategy for effective preparation and an excellent application.
Skype Mock Interview Packages
Packages of one-hour Skype mock interview sessions with our Oxbridge-graduate interviewers.
Each interview session will be highly subject-specific, conducted by a recent Oxbridge-graduate in that subject (crucial for effective preparation) and include 15 minutes of verbal as well as written feedback.
Skype Admissions Test Packages
We can offer packages to individual students of four hours of one-to-one admissions test tuition, conducted by a test expert over Skype.
Including a pack of original mock-tests and detailed answers, these sessions focus on strategy and techniques for exceptional performance. Discounts are available for bulk schools bookings.
Information and Resources
A wealth of online resources focusing on students facing the international applications to Oxbridge or UK medical and law schools are available for free for your students.
We also send consultants into international schools to hold talks, which we conducted earlier this year in Dubai, Singapore and Malaysia.
