Harvard and Oxford University are both ranked #1 in their respective countries and are globally recognised institutions of academic excellence.
Both universities are universally recognised by world-leading businesses, therefore their alumni enjoy lucrative and fulfilling future careers.
Harvard and Oxford employ world-class lecturers and professors and due to the small class sizes, students benefit from quality time and exposure.
Harvard is looking for the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow. As a result, it attracts - and seeks - well-rounded students who are not only eager to learn but likely to inspire others.
Whilst strong academics are important, students must also demonstrate extracurricular engagement and clear personal qualities. In short, good grades are not enough!
Students don't need to decide on their major until the end of the second year, making this a great option for those who can't decide what to study.
Harvard values extracurriculars just as highly as academics, that's why there are over 450 groups and societies on campus that are heavily funded by the university.
Harvard students engage in world-class research across all disciplines, collaborating with renowned faculty researchers whose work has been featured in top journals and awarded prestigious grants.
Harvard offers 42 Division I intercollegiate varsity teams (more than any other Division I college) and more than 80% of their students participate in athletics of some kind.
Oxford is looking for a scholar; a capable academic who is passionate, rigorous and resilient in the pursuit of knowledge.
They want to see evidence of the student pursuing their chosen subject outside of school and challenging themselves to take the most rigorous curriculum on offer to them.
The tutorial system offers high levels of contact in small group settings, as well as an in-depth focus on a chosen subject. This allows for an exchange of ideas which facilitates learning beyond lectures.
Oxford has over 400 clubs and societies including 83 sports clubs and the independent student newspaper, allowing students to pursue other interests outside of their studies.
Oxford provides internship opportunities in over 40 countries via its international alumni network and connections with multi-national corporations and cutting-edge research institutions.
Each student at Oxford will be assigned to a college, where they will live, eat and study. There are 45 to choose from and they vary in size, age and subject focus. Students can state their preference upon application.
