Each year, we meet up to 500 potential Oxbridge Applicants for Private Consultations in our London offices or online.

This one-hour working meeting provides research-driven insight into the admissions process, empowering candidates to make the best decisions for their applications to maximise their chances of success. Drawing upon our 24 years of experience and research, our Oxbridge-graduate consultants will:

- Assess an individual’s potential to succeed as an Oxbridge applicant through an academic interview, highlighting specific areas to work on

- Advance their application with a full, tailored strategy, providing guidance on university, course, college choice, the personal statement, admissions test and interview

- Address all individual concerns and discuss further support for the applicant

Within 48 hours, we will send comprehensive written feedback, including relevant ‘Course Reports’ (RRP £100), detailing the next steps we recommend.

Private Consultation Testimonials

Thank you so much for everything! I will have a look on all the work and come back if I encounter any difficulties or uncertainties.
It was really nice meeting you. I thought the session was, indeed, very helpful and I have certainly received a more clear perspective of my path towards applying to either one of the universities.
PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2020

Thank you, we thought this would be wishy washy, but you've given us a lot to think about, and it's made such a difference to have someone as lovely as you.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2020

We both found meeting Theo and the conversations on Saturday very insightful and informative and has certainly given Gino lots to think about and work on.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2020

'...Thank you for your help this morning and it was pleasure to have met you.We really appreciated your valuable insight into how Cambridge University admission works and the advice that you gave to Lulabelle.'

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2020

You have been far more informative than I could possibly have imagined; I really feel I have the knowledge and energy to put into making myself the best for Cambridge!

STUDENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2019

While I was delighted with the outcome of my interaction with [your consultants], it was no surprise as it coincided with the research I had done prior to approaching your firm. My husband and I shortlisted Oxbridge Applications from an array of other consulting firms and individuals offering the same service. After our meeting yesterday, I am convinced that we made the right decision to go with your firm."

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2019

I also wanted to thank Alicia, and to say that she was wonderfully frank and supportive in her assessment of Bonnie. Alicia's enthusiastic and encouraging approach really helped Bonnie's self confidence. Regardless of where Bonnie ends up, the whole experience has been really enriching.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2019

We thought the consultation was super-helpful for us and we've spoken to a number of friends already - it's totally worth it. I couldn't have found a better place to land. You have my full endorsement.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2018

We were both impressed with… the guidance [you were] able to offer. Your organisation is highly professional and personal; no wonder you lead the market.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2018

Thank you also for all your brilliant help, it made the whole process far less daunting.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2018

I thought it was a most impressive session which [my son] got a lot from. Very much worth every penny. Thank you.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2017

Many thanks for your time on Saturday and for the detailed feedback. All of us found the session highly informative and useful. You provided invaluable information and advice to [my daughter] which I know she has already started to take on board.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2016

Thank you for all this information, we are finding it very helpful indeed . . . the consultation and swift feedback has been invaluable in seeing where [my son] is currently at and what he needs to focus on improving. He has a lot to do but it is great now to have a clear vision of what they will be looking for.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2015

I am delighted to have met you: you are indeed an inspiration to the youngsters whom you mentor . . . my experience with Oxbridge Applications has always been very good, and I'm confident that the coming year will be exactly the same.

PARENT FOLLOWING A CONSULTATION, 2014

Thank you for the professional and positive session with [my son] last night. He went home very motivated and inspired.
