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!
The subject area of my programme is Politics and International Relations. My tutor was really helpful, understanding and constructive in the feedback he gave. It was a great opportunity to learn from someone who had done a previous study on the project topic I was working on. In addition to the lectures and guidance on how to properly plan and structure my writing, the biggest help I received was the support and confidence I gained from his experience.
I originally had difficulties portraying my own thoughts onto paper and had always relied on references for support, hence undermining the analytical aspect of my writing. He was really helpful in providing me with constructive feedback and encouraging me to better portray my ideas, reassuring me to be bolder in my writing and to be confident.
