A LIFE-CHANGING INTERVIEW

"What shape is the sky? Is ignorance bliss? Can computers think?" These are not questions designed to test your ability to recite the correct answer; rather, they are intended to shed insight into how you reason on the spot. Yet much of pre-tertiary education is assessed through standardized tests which reward those who diligently study past papers.

Little wonder, then, that most students find Oxbridge interviews – notorious for fielding subject-specific brain-twisters of this sort – an unprecedented challenge. Moreover, few prospective applicants appreciate the purpose of these interviews. More than an expansion on your personal statement or a test of speaking skills, they represent a microcosm of one of Oxbridge's hallmark features: the tutorial system, in which professors engage with undergraduates in small group discussions. Thus, many students are both ill-prepared for the style of the interview and ill-informed about its purpose, a combination that inspires little hope of success.

Designed by an Oxbridge graduate with over ten years of experience mentoring successful applicants, our preparation course leverages a deep appreciation for the interview's process and purpose to train candidates how to approach their interviews with confidence, curiosity, and capability.

WHAT ARE OXBRIDGE INTERVIEWS? 

Interviews are a crucial opportunity for Admissions Tutors to assess your passion for your chosen subject, your critical thinking skills, your academic potential beyond your grades and personal statement, and your ability to think independently. The thinking process towards reaching your answer is more indicative of your academic potential, ability to engage with new ideas, and whether you can apply existing knowledge to unfamiliar problems than giving the right or wrong answers.

At IvyPrep, we put you at the centre of our holistic consulting approach and provide you with personalised support and resources to build your candidacy with a robust interview strategy unique to you. Whatever course you choose to apply to, we will help you achieve your educational goals and fulfil your potential.

Program Coverage

The Oxbridge Interview Preparation Program is designed to empower you with the skills and strategies for interview success.

OXBRIDGE INTERVIEW
STRATEGY & PREPARATION

Despite Oxbridge’s best efforts to debunk some of the myths and mystique around their interviews, most students still find this the most daunting and challenging aspect of their Oxbridge application journey. We will help you understand more about the interview process and what is needed to perform well in interviews. We will also go through your personal statement with you and help you crystallize your core messages for the interview.

GENERAL ACADEMIC INTERVIEW

The purpose of the general academic interview is for the university to get to know more about you and why you’re interested in the subject you are applying for. They are looking to understand more about you as a person and your wider academic work and interest.

This general academic interview session will give you practice articulating your personal messages with guidance and feedback from an experienced interview mentor. To that end we will help you build on your strengths and develop your skills to stand out, with the aim of elevating your profile and confidence to demonstrate your full potential.

SUBJECT-SPECIFIC INTERVIEW

These interviews involve challenging discussions on academic areas that are relevant to the subject you are applying for. You will be expected to demonstrate intellectual flexibility and analytical reasoning, problem-solving skills as well as the ability to assimilate new ideas and apply them in novel areas. These practice interview sessions will provide you invaluable exposure to Oxbridge’s unique style of subject interviews, and gain feedback from our Oxbridge subject interview mentors.
