Hear From Our School Partners


"At Cardiff Sixth Form College, one of the cornerstones of our provision is that we 'demand and deliver excellence'. Our partnership with Oxbridge Applications, is a wonderful example of this, with expert guidance provided for our students and expert training provided for our staff in the pursuit of the highest university ambitions."

Gareth Collier, Principal, Cardiff Sixth Form College, 2021

Thank you so much for this afternoon with our Year 12s - the session was really useful and the feedback has been great.

Jane Collier, Head of University Advice, Hurtwood House, 2021

“Thank you so much for the interview day today. The students were nervous (which is normal) but they all commented on just how interesting and stimulating the interviews were. They all commented on the professionalism of the tutors, and they all learned a lot from the experience. They will certainly be more confident and prepared for any Oxbridge interviews that they might face in the future. Thank you again for a wonderful event!! We look forward to working with you again in the future!"

Peter Sullivan, British School of Madrid, 2020

“Aspirational, inspirational and thought-provoking; OA provided expert advice whilst engaging in an engaging and accessible manner. Absolutely hit the spot. Thank you!”

Susan Gower, Director of Sixth Form Experience, Croydon High School, 2021

“Another great day and the students, as ever, got a huge amount out of it. We hope to see you next year!”

Ed Lamb, Davenport High School, 2020

I just wanted to let you know the wonderful news that [student] has received an offer! I have no doubt that the two interviews with you played a massively vital role in securing this offer and wish to offer my most profound gratitude. Your patient and kindly approach really settled his nerves and he performed superbly well in his interviews with Cambridge. A huge "thank you" to Alison and Alicia for all of your help.

House Mistress at King's Ely School

We’ve had Oxbridge Applications help us for eight years. Efficiency, quality and adaptability are what recommend them to us, and they are consistently rated ‘outstanding’ by the pupils.

Guy Nobes, Marlborough College

Can I just say a huge thank you to you and your team. You have been amazing. The amount and quality of support has been phenomenal and we are incredibly grateful.

Nick Berman, Future Academies
Emanuel School

“Thank you again - from my point of view, the remote interviews worked really well. It was good to have access to a larger number of tutors, to give all the pupils two interviews, and for me to be able to drop in on them too. I was particularly impressed with Alison's interviewing! Really helpful!”

Julia Johnson, Emanuel School, 2020

Surbiton high school

“I have used Oxbridge Applications with many students over the years and have found them to be excellent. They have contributed to innovations in our Oxbridge support which has seen our Oxbridge offers at Surbiton High triple in recent years when most independent schools are seeing their offers go in the opposite direction. I am happy to use their services year after year."

Terry McDermott, Surbiton High School, 2020


“It was an eye-opening presentation. Alicia explained every point very clearly and logically. It was one of the best teacher training sessions I have had for a long time. Worth every minute and every penny. Highly recommended.”

Mr Nagpal, Watford Grammar School, 2020

Our Oxbridge Events Are
Led By Admissions Tutors From Oxford &

“By the end of a course like this, one can see very clearly the extra confidence participants have achieved”
- Barry Webb, Former Oxford Admissions Tutor

Our preparation events give students that first taste of what it’s like to live, breathe, and - most importantly - think like an Oxbridge student.

Along with their subject-specific tutorials and mock interviews, students receive interviews from former Oxbridge admissions tutors, who have assessed hundreds of students in the real thing.
