Hear Our Recent Testimonials

It's refreshing to receive a 5 star service where reality meets expectations. You have all been exceptional individually, as has the programme and level of pastoral and academic care and intensity.

Premier Service Parent

Oxbridge Applications was indispensable in helping our daughter get into Oxford. Alicia Luba in particular was outstanding. She is highly professional, very friendly and patient, and we are grateful to her for preparing our daughter for this incredible opportunity. Highly recommended!

Parent, 2022

Excellent and very straight forward, practical advice from Alicia which has been incredibly helpful. Thank you so much!

Parent, 2022

“We hired OA to help us navigate the UCAS application as we were applying from the US and were unfamiliar with the process. Theo Boyce worked with our son and he was admitted with unconditional offers to almost all the universities he applied to. He helped with course selection, interview prep, guidance on the personal statement. Despite the time difference meetings were easily arranged and emails answered within seconds. We are incredibly impressed with the service we received and cannot recommend OA enough! The premier package was an excellent resource and our son would not be in the situation of choosing between such highly ranked, world renowned universities. We did not think this was possible coming out of a public school in Florida! They even advised the schools guidance counselor what highly selective universities look for in the letter of recommendation. One university head of admissions even wrote back to the guidance counselor that the letter of recommendation was exemplary for contextual information about the applicant. Well worth the investment !"

Premier Service Parent, 2022

“As a parent of a successful applicant to her chosen Cambridge College I would recommend OA as a must for any prospective Oxbridge applicant . The Premier Service provided a bespoke series of learning opportunities and interview practice which thoroughly prepared our daughter for the unique challenges of the Oxbridge process . Thank you so much to all the professional , motivated and caring OA team."

Premier Service Parent, 2022


"We would like to thank you for all the help and support you provided her: she would not have made it without the hours of tutoring and interview preparation that your program offers. We’re glad she embarked on this journey with you and we will not hesitate to get in touch again for further assistance if needed. We will wholeheartedly recommend your program to other students."

Premier Service Parent, 2021

"Thank you very much for your advice and support - even though we are at the beginning of the journey, I’ve already had the most professional help. You have already become a trusted advisor! Initially, we were not even considering Engineering and it was your suggestion to try it. You were right, he is completely set on it now, no doubts."

Premier Service Parent, 2021

“I wanted to say thank you for your support in the preparation for the assessment and interview at Cambridge. I believe that the programme really helped with his confidence and performance. Clearly we are in the hands of the university now. Thank you for your good work and professionalism - it's been a real learning experience, and here's hoping to a positive outcome."

Premier Service Parent, 2021

"THANK YOU for the great job you have all done in preparing -- for her Cambridge application and interview which finally happened yesterday. I don't believe that she could have been better prepared. It was still tough, as I think it always is, but she worked extremely hard and the rest is out of our hands now!"

Premier Service Parent, 2021

"Thank you so much for all of the help from Oxbridge Application and without this I will not be able to get to the place I am now. I cannot express my gratitude in words but thank you so much. I hope you are having a wonderful day."

Premier Service Student, 2022

"I received an offer from Cambridge yesterday to read Law. I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help and guidance throughout this application process. It has been invaluable."

“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

“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

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

School Partner

Julia Johnson, 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!

Surbiton high school

School Partner

Terry McDermott, 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."
