Develop a pre-university research project in Mathematics
Mathematics is a powerful tool, and its influence can be found in multiple fields. From engineering, medicine and the sciences to finance, economics and business, maths is a broad subject that offers many prosperous avenues.
With guidance from an Oxbridge university tutors, you will explore a range of mathematical topics from constructive mathematics to abstract vector spaces attempting to find proofs for the range of theories that you encounter.
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 thoroughly enjoyed working with my tutor, with whom I spent long hours on calls going through material, as well as occasionally going on tangents about our shared interests. He was really helpful, especially providing more digestible examples for more complex concepts.
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.
