Reviews
What our alumni say

I found the Oxbridge Research Programme classes very interactive. I was able to work one on one with my tutor, which meant that I could ask the questions which I found most important, and allowed me to go more in-depth into what I was most interested in.

My tutor had economics experience from university, which meant that I was able to experience what studying economics at university would be like. I found it was very personal to me because it allowed me to go into my own interests rather than taking a course that would cover a whole variety of economics.

What to expect from the programme

What is the Oxbridge Research Programme?

Handling the transition from high school to university has become increasingly challenging for high performing students from around the world. Top universities are looking for evidence that sets students apart amongst a sea of qualified applicants. In addition, motivated students actively want to learn the skills that would enable them to succeed in a university environment, as well as study a subject in a way that is not possible within the limits of exam-focused school curricula.

The Oxbridge Research programme provides undergraduate-level research opportunities to motivated and high achieving students.

 

 

Online Programmes

Participants will work one-on-one with university tutors from Cambridge University and Oxford University. These specialists are teachers who have experience teaching actual undergraduates, and deep subject expertise.

Each student will undertake advanced research in a topic of their interest, culminating in a full-length academic research paper. The programme is conducted online and the research paper is assessed by two separate tutors.

The development of the research project will be guided by a student’s personal tutor. The whole programme is facilitated online over the course of 2 weeks, 4 weeks or 8 weeks. Participants can choose the intensity of their course.
