With years of experience successfully supporting students in their applications to Oxford and Cambridge, and working alongside an outstanding team of Oxford and Cambridge graduate Consultants, admissions support is positioned to support applicants in every step of their application: from selecting the perfect college to preparing for their interview.
Thank you for the advice and support you have given me since the beginning of this process. Essentially, what I have achieved wouldn't have been possible in some way without you.
It is a pleasure (and a relief!) to know of institutions like yours that can guide students - and parents - through the demanding requirements of school and college preparation.
Sam did more than just help me with university admissions, he consolidated my interest in law by sharing his experience. I can definitely say that without [him] I would not have received all of my university offers!
In order to ensure every applicant benefits from the best support, we hold the team of consultants we work with to the highest standard. Whilst every member of the consulting team we work with is an Oxford or Cambridge graduate - and so has experienced, first-hand, how to successfully navigate the admissions process to Oxford & Cambridge - we expect every Consultant to demonstrate the finest academic pedigree and experience successfully supporting students in their applications to Oxford and Cambridge, in order to join our team.
How We Select the team of consultants we work with
While the team of consultants we work with all share a common history, as graduates of Oxford or Cambridge, our team counts university professors, criminal prosecutors, and practicing doctors among its numbers, providing students not only with an insight into their chosen university and course, but a unique opportunity to learn more about the places their chosen field of study may take them. We believe in the excellence of our team and hold the team of consultants we work with to the highest standard, expecting each to demonstrate the finest academic pedigree and history of successfully supporting students in their applications to Oxford and Cambridge.
Every prospective member of consultants we work with is interviewed personally by our in-house Consulting team, and are considered on the merits of their academic achievements, knowledge of their subject-field, and experience successfully supporting students in their applications to Oxford & Cambridge to ensure they are equipped to support students in every aspect of their application, from choosing the right college to preparing for their admissions tests. We consistently review the feedback we receive for every Consultant, monitoring the progress and development of both the team of consultants we work with and the applicants they support.
