Here at Oxbridge Applications, we work hand in hand with US University consultant Dr Jon Tabbert, Managing Director of Dukes US Applications. Dr Tabbert and his team support our Oxbridge applicants who are also applying to top colleges in the USA. Each year, many of our students are awarded places not only at Oxford or Cambridge but also at Harvard, Yale, Brown, Princeton, NYU or MIT.

If you are considering applying to an American University, a Private Consultation with our US admissions expert is the best possible way to build a bespoke plan for preparation that will help you maximise your chances of winning a place. Book your consultation by contacting Dr Jon Tabbert on:

Dukes US Parent’s Conference

The process of applying to US Universities is challenging, both for an aspiring student and their family. Run by Dr Jon Tabbert, the Parent’s Conference offers expert guidance and support for the parents and guardians of future US  applicants.

The evening provides invaluable insight into the application process, the qualities American Institutions are looking for, and also provides answers to all your important questions.

The two-and-a-half hour seminar is an excellent opportunity to learn how to help your child excel in their application and how to aid them in their preparation.



A talk from Dr Jon Tabbert, a former Director of Enrolment who has three decades of experience in representing and directing admissions for US universities.
Receive comprehensive answers to your key questions about applying to US universities and gain initial guidance and support.
The evening will cover areas such as how to prepare for the SAT or ACT, the college essay and the Common Application.



We found this event incredibly engaging, interesting and helpful. Undoubtedly, Jon and Michelle possess unmatched expertise in the US university admissions. They are perfectly placed to help navigate aspiring students and their parents in the exciting (yet complex for us, here in the UK!) world of American education.
