Develop a pre-university research project in Biology
The Biology Oxbridge Online Research Programme offers students to gain a taster of what it’s like to study Biology at an advanced level, through carefully designed programmes that are taught by expert Biology tutors from world-leading universities. It’s the unique opportunity to further your knowledge of one of the most important scientific disciplines, and to discover the different pathways available should you continue to study Biology.
The Biological Sciences represent some of the most fascinating research that encompasses some of the world’s most pressing issues – from ecological destruction to biomechanics and the rise of superbugs, biology is a fascinating subject that intersects many different sciences and even unrelated disciplines.
What is the Oxbridge Online Research Programme?
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme (‘OORP’) is designed for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.
Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic from Oxford or Cambridge University.
This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of an Oxbridge degree. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!
My tutor was really useful as they were very experienced and interested in my topic which meant they were very excited about teaching me the material. They also taught me tricks that they had learnt for researching throughout their university experience so I could use it in the future.
1:1 Tutoring From Expert Academics
Students on the Oxbridge Online Research Programme will develop key skills essential for success at higher education.
Independent Study & Research Skills
Oxford and Cambridge put huge emphasis on the importance of self-study and development, and this course will help you learn more about how best to research and achieve your goals
The research project will culminate either in a dissertation-style essay or a complex presentation. Both formats will require you to be able to present your work to a high-quality, including how to frame arguments, analyse and reference appropriately.
Oxbridge Teaching Experience
