US University Consultancy Partner: Dr Jon Tabbert

Here at Oxbridge Applications, we work hand in hand with US University consultant Dr Jon Tabbert, Managing Director of Dukes US Applications. Dr Tabbert and his team support our Oxbridge applicants who are also applying to top colleges in the USA. Each year, many of our students are awarded places not only at Oxford or Cambridge but also at Harvard, Yale, Brown, Princeton, NYU or MIT.

Dr Jon Tabbert
Managing Director

Dukes US Applications

Jon graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Bradley University followed by a master’s degree from Minnesota State University and a doctorate from the University of North Dakota. He held administrative and faculty positions at several US universities, and subsequently represented a consortium of American universities in Europe. In 1982 he moved to the UK, serving as Executive Director of Student Enrollment at the American International University in London. Jon established his consultancy in 1995 to provide tailored support on US applications to international applicants. In 2015 Jon joined the Dukes Education Consultancy, and continues to provide the same expert guidance under the name Dukes US Applications.

Oxbridge Applications works next door to Dr Tabbert’s team in our shared offices in St James's, London, providing students and families with an opportunity to have a Private Consultation with both specialist teams before making a decision. To support students who wish to apply to both Oxbridge and to US universities, we work closely with Dr Tabbert to ensure that they are able to perform to the best of their ability throughout both processes.

Dukes US Parent’s Conference

The process of applying to US Universities is challenging, both for an aspiring student and their family. Run by Dr Jon Tabbert, the Parent’s Conference offers expert guidance and support for the parents and guardians of future US applicants. The evening provides invaluable insight into the application process and the qualities American Institutions are looking for, as well as providing answers to all your important questions. The two-and-a-half hour seminar is an excellent opportunity to learn how to help your child excel in their application and how to aid them in their preparation.
