Abbey College Cambridge are pleased to announce a partnership with Leading Education to offer an enhanced Oxbridge Candidate Programme for our students from this summer.
Leading Education are an international education consultancy that specialises in helping students prepare for top UK universities. Their Oxbridge application success rate is 43%, against a national average of 18% – effectively doubling students’ chances of success.
Abbey College Cambridge has already established an excellent track record of Oxbridge success, having had 73 students accepted into Oxbridge colleges in recent years. Working with Leading Education to offer this enhanced, highly-personalised Oxbridge Candidate Programme will allow us to further improve this success rate and ensure that our students are fulfilling their Oxbridge potential.
The Oxbridge Candidate Programme will work alongside the college’s current high quality study support programmes, in particular the Pre Degree Diploma and our UCAS support programme which are offered as standards to all Year 12 students. The Oxbridge Candidate Programme will be offered to selected students who aspire to study at Oxbridge and who can demonstrate the qualities of a successful applicant.
It is recognised that excellent grades are just part of a successful application to a top university. Our university preparation programmes are designed to help students achieve top grades and go beyond the A Level curriculum to strengthen their University Application and be seen as top candidates. Students attending the Oxbridge Candidate Programme will receive specialised support for enhancing their subject knowledge, Entrance Exam preparation and Interview preparation.
Vice Principal Academic, Andrew Humphris commented. “This partnership allows us to offer an additional layer of preparation to our Oxbridge candidates from consultants with specialist knowledge. We look forward to working together with Leading Education to help more of our students achieve their dreams of attending the univeristies of Cambridge or Oxford.”
