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!
Really wonderful experience – I met new people from all over the world, learnt about new cultures and most importantly learnt more about my chosen subject in the best way possible.

Sample Sustainability Research Projects
Module 1 - GlobalisationOver the last 50 years, the planet has seen unprecedented growth and globalisation, as the world becomes increasingly interconnected through a rise in trade, travel and technological advancement. What are the advantages and disadvantages of such rapid change to our planet? Do the positives outweigh the negatives in the long term, and is this rate of growth sustainable?
Module 2 - Eco-ActivismIn this class, you will discuss whether it is possible for environmental activism to push boundaries too far. Do protesters, campaign groups and charities run the risk of being perceived as threatening, which in turn becomes counterintuitive to their cause? Are there approaches to eco-activism that hinder progress rather than help?
Module 3 - Competitive Advantage And InnovationYou will explore the components, processes, and objectives of management practice. Examine how policies, practices, and systems influence employee behaviour, attitudes, and performance, and the subsequent managerial tools that can be deployed. You will also be introduced to case studies as a method for testing management. You will explore the components, processes, and objectives of management practice.
Module 4 - Emerging TechnologiesAs renewable energy, carbon-free transport and more effective greenhouse gas emissions management become more and more widespread - what is next?
