What is the 1:1 Research Programme designed by Ivy League tutors?

The Ivy League Online Research Programme (‘ILORP’) is designed by faculty from Ivy League universities 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.

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 studying at a top tier university. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!

Testimonials
"

I have participated in the Cambridge Immerse programme in 2018 in the 13-15 age category and I enjoyed it immensely. I wanted to do this again this year and join the 16-18 age category however, due to the Covid-19 crisis, I could not do so this year. Therefore, I decided to look into what other options I could choose instead this year. I chose the Oxbridge Online Research Programme for Psychology as it was an in depth 1:1 course which I thought was a great way to do online learning.
