The personal statement workshops will help students develop their understanding of how to write an effective personal statement for their subject.

STATEMENT FEEDBACK FOR STUDENTS
Written personal statement feedback for each student in the form of tracked changes and comments, following the event.
"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."
"Oxbridge Applications have offered an invaluable service in supplementing Marlborough College's programme of preparation for Oxbridge admissions tests and interviews. Their bespoke approach is flexible but robust, and has offered our pupils greater exposure to admissions test papers and interviews. The quality of their tutors always impresses our pupils, whose feedback is consistently positive."
"We have been really happy with the way Oxbridge Applications have helped to guide our students through the demands of the application process, providing high quality feedback and support at all stages."
“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!"
“Another great day and the students, as ever, got a huge amount out of it. We hope to see you next year!”
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.
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.
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.
Thank you so much for this afternoon with our Year 12s - the session was really useful and the feedback has been great.
“Aspirational, inspirational and thought-provoking; OA provided expert advice whilst engaging in an engaging and accessible manner. Absolutely hit the spot. Thank you!”

“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!
“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."
