Medicine Online Research Programme

Develop a pre-university research project in Medicine

Medicine encompasses far more than just being a doctor.

Our medical Oxbridge Online Research Programme covers Medicine from the laboratory right through to the patient’s bedside and considers drugs, disease and the human anatomy along the way.

With expert guidance from an Oxbridge university tutor, you will explore the work at the forefront of medical research, debate medical ethics and learn the emergency medicine processes utilised by clinical medics in all fields. Along the way you’ll develop the critical thinking and independent research skills crucial to success in this field.


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 Oxbridge Online Research Programme was initially recommended to me by a teacher. Through further reading, I chose to enrol in the programme as it was a programme I thought was focused on introducing me to a potential career path, and was able to whet my interest in Medicine. I thought it was very suitable, given the stage I was at, and would be able to provide me not only with an early insight of the field of Medicine, but also with an understanding of the work expected in universities. I thought that the programme would be able to equip me with knowledge and experience I could take forward into the future, and seemed different to anything I had tried before.
