We advise every student to begin crafting their application as early as possible, and our
Consultants are available to support applicants in every stage of making their application,
whether considering courses or preparing for admissions tests.
We do not limit support for any part of a student’s application to a tier of support, and
encourage each applicant to work closely together with their Consultant to devise a
programme of support and guidance which suits them best, providing the requisite time for
every student to grow in confidence and resolve before making their application.
Our Mentoring Package is suited to applicants seeking the support of a Consultant
throughout the application process, and applicants are placed with a Consultant who holds an Oxford or
Cambridge degree in their chosen field of study. As with every option of support we provide, we encourage
applicants to consider their time with their Consultants and to work with them to devise
a programme of support conducive to their requirements. Generally, students benefit from
using ten hours of their support to work with their Consultant on their application,
considering college selection, personal statement guidance, and admissions test
preparation. As part of the Mentoring Package, students are encouraged to have a second
mock interview with another Consultant, in order to replicate the multiple interviews of
Oxford & Cambridge’s application processes and prepare students comprehensively.
Many students are confident in their own understanding of the application process to
Oxford & Cambridge, but would like the assistance of a Consultant with a particular
aspect of their application or nuance of the application system. For these students
our Spot Check places applicants with a Consultant from their chosen field of study
to discuss whichever aspect they require support in.
Consultants can assist applicants in crafting their personal statement, preparing
for admissions tests, or selecting the best college to which to make their
application. For students seeking assistance in their preparations for interview we
offer our Mock Interview option of support.
A One-Off Consultation is ideal for students at any stage of their application to Oxford
or Cambridge. During their consultation with their Consultant, applicants
may receive guidance regarding the selection of Oxford or Cambridge colleges, a personal
statement review, and any other initial application advice. Applicants receive a
personal report, highlighting any areas which require improvement, as well as guidance
on the next steps of their application, taking the form of a brief follow-up
With each applicant’s performance at interview playing an integral part in the success
of their application, our Mock Interview support provides students with an opportunity
to be exposed to the rigours and challenges of interviewing at Oxford or Cambridge as
part of their preparations for their real interview. Applicants benefit from over an
hour of interview time, followed by bespoke feedback regarding their performance by
their Consultant, an Oxford or Cambridge graduate, and advice and guidance on how to
improve their performance before their real interview.
