In addition to our Pre-Degree Diploma Programme, we also offer specialist preparation in areas such as admissions to Oxbridge. Medicine or law courses, and for students looking to continue their studies at universities outside of the United Kingdom.

Oxbridge applicants

We encourage our most able and dedicated students to apply for admission to either the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge. Each year we have around 30 students apply to Oxbridge colleges.

We recognise the difficulty in making such an application, not least because many more A grade students make an Oxbridge application than there are places available. Therefore, in addition to our standard UCAS programme we invite Oxbridge applicants to participate in a programme of further discussion and preparation.

Our Oxbridge programme includes:

  • Selection of college: identification of the most appropriate college in terms of course choice, personality and chance of success.
  • Technical guidance: ensuring that applicants have an outstanding awareness of current issues in their chosen discipline that extends beyond the A Level curriculum.
  • Interview technique: advice and practice concerning effective ways to deal with the demands of the admissions interview at an Oxbridge college.
  • Extra tuition: Guidance and teaching dedicated to the extended Oxbridge application requirements.
  • Our programme includes preparation for Advanced Extension Award and Sixth Term Examination Papers in Mathematics, the Thinking Skills Assessment test and the other admissions tests the applicants will meet at their interviews.

Medicine and Dentistry applicants

Each year we have students who wish to study medicine or dentistry. We offer a specialist programme to support these students in their applications. This includes advice on the additional admissions tests set by medical schools such as the UCAT or BMAT as well as preparation for medical and dental school interviews.

Law applicants

In most years we have a number of students who wish to read law. We offer a specialist programme to support these students in their application. This includes advice on the additional admissions test set by faculties of law, as well as preparation for law interviews.
