The Premier Service is our most comprehensive programme of long-term, tailored support, powered by a full-time team of Oxbridge consultants, and supported by hand-selected academic specialists.

We believe that, with the right support and determination, academic passion and ability can be developed. Drawing on decades of experience and a network of eminent subject specialists, The Premier Service provides end-to-end support and guidance for students' applications to Oxford or Cambridge, among other selective UK universities. We couple sustained oversight and communication from our dedicated programme managers with hand-selected expert mentors and tutors to meet student's specific needs, ensuring each reaches their highest potential.

Applying to Join the Premier Service

We take around 150 students each year on this programme. To begin the process, contact one of our consultants to book a Private Consultation. The Premier Service is tailored to each individual student and we only invite students to join whom we feel will most benefit from long-term support.

Why it works

The key to our success is our personalised, one-to-one approach, which allows us to develop the academically mature and independent students that Oxford and Cambridge are looking for. Alongside individual elements of our programme, which are tailored to individual students, we have a full-time dedicated team managing students' applications based in our Central London offices.

The Premier Service

Students studying for school

One of our Premier Tutors who studied your chosen subject at Oxford or Cambridge will mentor you – giving you the chance to develop your academic interests, and begin studying like an undergraduate in a setting just like that of the Oxford ‘tutorial’ or Cambridge ‘supervision’. Immersion in one-to-one tuition with an expert at an early stage develops mature communication skills when dealing with intellectually challenging concepts, and has a huge impact on the success of our applicants. 

Our applicants also benefit from our substantial experience and research. Oxbridge Applications is supported by an advisory board of former Oxford and Cambridge Admissions Tutors – the best sources of insight into what the universities are looking for. They feed back to our network of Tutors and Consultants, each of whom also has successful experience of the admissions system.

To explore whether the Premier Service is the right choice, most applicants begin with a Private Consultation, during which a tailored programme will be drawn up to provide you with full support. Call +44 (0)20 7499 2394 or Email us

The Premier Service Programme

One-to-one Academic Mentoring

Mentoring with an Oxbridge-graduate in your subject throughout your application, developing your subject-knowledge, communication, and academic strength. These mentors are more than tutors, building self-autonomy in students and empowering them as independent academics.

Personal Statement Support

Your mentor and former Admissions Tutors will work closely with you to help you draft a strong personal statement, ensuring that your points are correctly weighted to suit Oxbridge. Our in-house team of consultants will also review unlimited drafts, to make sure you are submitting an excellent statement to your university choices.

University, Course & College Selection

Drawing on research, internal knowledge, individual colleges' admissions statistics and your preferences, we will develop a shortlist of colleges that we believe are best suited to you. We are also available throughout the year to discuss University and course selection, providing 'taster sessions' if necessary, and providing advice on which pathway would be most suitable.

Communications Skills

Each Premier Service student works one-to-one with a former Oxbridge academic and real admissions tutor for an authoritative view on their level. These sessions provide an opportunity to focus on confidence and communication skills: an essential asset for your application to Oxbridge, as well as other universities and future job interviews.

Admissions Test Preparation

If your course requires an admissions test, you will receive one-to-one tutorials with our test experts, have full access to our mock tests. These tests have been created by Oxbridge Applications for the benefit of our students, and in many cases we have more specimen papers available than the universities do themselves.

Interview Practice

Further mock interview practice on both our Interview Preparation Days and Oxbridge Preparation Weekend. All mock interviews are one-to-one, and we ensure each individual applicant has a range of subject-specialists interview them before the real thing to ensure they are comfortable with a spread of different question types.

Oxbridge Preparation Courses

Accompanying this range of support, our Premier Clients attend two key courses at strategic points during the year:

September: Premier Day

This event is designed to initiate the intensive preparation that will be required in the following months.

September is a critical time for your application, so following small-group tutorials, preliminary mock interviews and a one-to-one consultation, we will provide you with a full assessment of your progress and identify key areas for intensive work in the following months. This is also a great opportunity to hear an academic lecture from one of our guest speakers.

October: Our Flagship Residential Oxbridge Course

The October Oxbridge Preparation Weekend is a cornerstone of your programme, designed to develop the crucial abilities Admissions Tutors seek in successful applicants.

Through one-to-one time with former Oxbridge Admissions Tutors, subject-focused tutorials, Admissions Test support, and a full day of rigorous mock interviews, you will work intensively on final areas for development.

Premier Students also have one-to-one Admissions Test Tuition and a range of subject-specific mock interviews as a part of their service.

Competition for places at Oxbridge is fierce. We have carefully designed our Premier Service programme to help applicants build confidence in themselves and their passion for their chosen subject. Our Oxbridge-graduate tutors have all experienced the application process themselves and understand where students normally struggle and how to identify weak areas for improvement.

Feedback On Our Premier Service

We wanted to write as well, in order to express our gratitude to everyone at Oxbridge Applications for all your help, guidance and support. We feel that the Programme you run is well-conceived, far-reaching and very professional. Everything that Andrew has learned along the way as a result of being part of the Programme, will only serve him extremely well in the future.


We just wanted to say how very good we think the Premier Pack file you have provided Scott with is. It offers really helpful guidance on the whole process in a very concise and practical way, and if we have a question, we always seem to find the answer in it!


Helga knows that the mentoring from Oxbridge Applications played a huge part in her success in the application process and at interview. She may well be interested in giving that help and guidance to other hopefuls. I will pass your email on… and save it to pass on again in three years!


My son learnt such a lot from his mentor during this whole process. They quickly established a great working relationship and his mentor was particularly good at adapting the sessions to focus on the areas where my son felt he needed more support. The tutoring was flexible enough to work really well in a boarding school environment, through Skype everything was possible, also during holidays. More than anything else his mentor gave him the confidence to go forward on this new chosen career path with great enthusiasm.


I also wanted to thank you and all those involved in helping and supporting my son during this very difficult process. Everybody was great.  In particular, he had a brilliant working relationship with his mentor...  He was a great support for my son through the whole process. I would highly recommend you as a company and all the tutors involved.


My expectations have definitely been surpassed, and I believe I have benefited greatly from the range of advice and guidance that I had received as an applicant- from the tiniest details on respective college admissions processes to interview feedback.


The skills she learned through you will be of lifelong benefit.  In particular the growth in confidence, which has enabled her to project herself properly, will undoubtedly make going forward into her future challenges much more enjoyable and rewarding.


Thank you all once again for everything you have done for me to help me achieve this. I am so happy and could not be more grateful for all that has been done.


We definitely thought Adam had a decent chance of getting in before he started working with you all, but as the process went along we could see him becoming a stronger and more focused candidate. Your help was invaluable in helping him be the best he could possibly be. He went to interview very comfortable and confident and felt he couldn’t have done better. He learnt so much from all the different people who worked with him – they were uniformly excellent.


Ella's just heard she's got a place! Stephanie tutored Ella so excellently. She was incredibly solid and sound in her approach. She gave Ella clear guidance and goals, and pushed Ella to the upper limits of what she could achieve, setting demanding challenges and encouraging her in a positive way. Ella went into the PAT and interviews feeling confident and calm with an understanding of Physics elevated way beyond the syllabus. You had a very large part to play in helping Ella show her colours.


We can’t thank you all enough for all the help and guidance you have given Caitlin. We so admired your professionalism and constant support. We were particularly impressed by Robin’s invaluable sessions. He truly inspired Caitlin– challenging her and stretching her – and she really missed them when she stopped after her interview. He engendered in Caitlin even more passion for ASNaC and we were so utterly thrilled that she is now able to pursue her passion.
