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!
I studied Business Management on the Oxbridge Online Research Programme. I am a very shy person and I thought that I would have a problem communicating with my tutor, but as soon as we started our first lesson all my nerves went away and I started talking normally as if I was talking to a friend!
I found the course really useful to better understand what business is. Now that I have tried it out I would love to continue studying it.
