Reach for the sky
Oxford and Cambridge
Entry to these universities requires a high level of maturity and motivation owing to the intensity of the programme and environment. The application process can appear to be daunting, but with our support we make this much easier for you. Applications require careful preparation and attention to detail. Applicants need to show true passion for their subject and to hold high aspirations in order to be successful.
After the initial consultation, Marie-Louise and her team will give an honest assessment as to whether they feel a student is suitable to apply for such a competitive course of study. If a student is accepted onto the programme, they will be guided through the steps of application, which can sometimes take more than one year in order to provide adequate time to develop a C.V., academic essays and interview skills.
In addition, students need to demonstrate their interest outside the classroom which may be through extra studies and reading, or through work experience. Admissions tests are usually required, for which training can be provided at extra cost. Students are supported throughout the journey from initial counselling to final interview.
