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 Computer Science in this course, specifically Cryptocurrency and Artificial Intelligence. My tutor was an excellent tutor and one of the best teachers I have ever had. Though the topic of blockchain is very complex, he explained these concepts to me very clearly such that I was able to digest large amounts of knowledge easily. The use of diagrams to explain concepts helped me understand them much more easily and always gave constructive feedback when I needed them.
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
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme provides a unique opportunity to learn from expert academics, and receive top-quality tuition, similar to undergraduates studying in Oxford and Cambridge.

Sample Computer Science Research Projects
Module 1 - Bayesian Machine LearningWhat is the Bayes Theorem is and how is it used to calculate probabilities?
Module 2 - Informed and Un-Informed Search AlgorithmsWhen a search space is finite, and solutions exist, a challenge can be to find an algorithm which is both sound, and preferably optimal, with informed searches heavily influenced by their heuristic. Such algorithms can be compared by their time or space complexity.
Module 3 - Applications Artificial Intelligence in MedicineExplore the underlying principles of artificial intelligence to include supervised and unsupervised machine learning and explore its application to medicine. You will also learn about immunology and the structure of viruses and look into how we can unite AI with searching for potential COVID-19 solutions.
Module 4 - Introduction To Computer ScienceA perfect course for students with an interest in programming who have never had the chance to study it.
Module 5 - Introduction To ManagementYou will explore the components, processes, and objectives of management practice. Examine how policies, practices, and systems influence emplo
