Oxbridge Preparation is a programme for international students, between 16 and 18 years old, wanting to apply to Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group Universities. New for 2020, Bucksmore will partner with Oxford International College, one of the UK’s top-ranked schools for A-level results and university application success.

The two-week course is designed to prepare students with the best possible chance of successfully applying to the UK’s top universities. The syllabus will focus on the two ‘Oxbridge’ Universities, but will also include aspects relating to applying to the UK’s top 30 institutions. Students will have at least three personal 1-to-1 supervisions with their tutor to ensure their university application is progressing appropriately.

Oxbridge Preparation is hosted in Edmund Hall, Oxford University. Established in 1278, the University of Oxford College is one of the oldest higher education institutions in the world, and boasts the last surviving medieval hall in Oxford. St Edmund Hall is located just off Oxford’s High Street, with the city centre just a 5-minute walk away.
