First hand experience of applying to and attending Oxbridge universities

Have you ever wondered what it takes to get into top universities in the UK? If you plan on applying to Oxbridge, just how important is the interview? Are your grades and super curricular activities good enough? And how do you go about selecting your college?

With over centuries’ worth of combined experience, and stellar reputations to boot, only the cream of the crop even begin to catch the attention of admissions tutors at Oxbridge. With the rigorous criteria tutors need to observe, you will need to demonstrate intellectual curiosity and academic potential across all application components, from your personal statement and activities to ultimately your interview performance.

Understand how you can put your best foot forward as our IvyPrep strategists share their own successful application journeys to Cambridge and Oxford universities, providing you with personal insights to help you create a winning application.
