Mentoring Services

Our Premium Service is designed to guide students from the moment they decide to apply for Oxbridge all the way to interview.

Our tutors

Our tutors are all former or current Oxbridge individual Science or NatSci students who have an intricate understanding of the application process, the Oxbridge courses and the nature and content of the interviews. Each applicant will be assigned a tutor who has been to the university they wish to apply to in the subject they wish to apply to, who will assist them in all aspects of the application. Additional guidance will be provided by an assistant tutor who will liaise with both parties ensuring that progress is made, targets are met and all students are developing into outstanding applicants.

Our support

At a basic level our tutors will assist with the application process from college choice, to personal statement to the admissions process – including the changing entrance exam landscape. This will form the foundations of a strong application but this is by no means enough.

OxbridgeSciences distinguishes itself by providing a very high level of intensive and focused tuition designed to develop the applicant academically and turn them into model science undergraduates even before they attend interview. This is done through assisted further reading, specific learning beyond the A-level syllabus and development of several ‘specialist subjects’ for each student. We will ensure that students leave with an academic CV which stands out from the crowd and which brings them the confidence to really shine at interview.

Our events

In addition to the ongoing personal tuition that they will receive from their tutor and assistant tutor, our Premium Service members will be invited to attend our Tutorial Simulation weekend and Mock interview Weekend. The Tutorial Simulation Weekend is designed to bring together applicants in a tutorial style format to prepare them for the Oxbridge way of learning and interacting with fellow students with a passion for the Sciences.  In the format of debates and discussion, interview sessions, essay coaching and higher level academic interaction guided by Oxbridge  these sessions have been highly successful in the past and are unique to OxbridgeSciences.

Our Mock interview weekends are held in November. Students will receive a full day of realistic and challenging mock interviews from our tutors to prepare them for the December interviews at Oxford and Cambridge.

Our applicants

Places on our Premium Service are limited. Our applicants must demonstrate that they have the required grades, enthusiasm and ambition to be accepted onto our programme. A minimum requirement is 3 A grade predictions at A level and a majority of A*s at GCSE.
