Oxbridge - Key Features, What Admissions Officers Look For & How to Start Preparing

An exclusive Crimson Education talk at Alexandra College for students and parents Monday 4th April 9:45am - 10:45am

Aiming for Oxbridge?

Oxford and Cambridge have always enjoyed a fierce reputation for academic excellence. Each year, they attract thousands of students who are hoping to win a coveted place on one of the many distinguished courses, such as Computer Science, PPE or Natural Sciences.

However, as the volume of applications across both universities has increased, so too has the level of competition; especially for the most popular courses.

Oxford saw 23,000 applications in 2020 for only 3,300 places and Cambridge saw a 5.5% increase in the number of applications compared to last year and only increased their number of offers by 0.3%!

Even with annual fees between £26,770 and £37,510 they still see countless students from the EU and the competition is fierce!

Crimson has helped hundreds of students to fulfil their dreams of gaining admission to Oxbridge. Join Crimson Education UK Country Manager, Chloe Godsell as she demystifies the application process and shares tips on how you can improve your chance of success of getting on to the most competitive courses.

How Crimson can help

Applying to top universities is a difficult and stressful task which is why so many students seek external support.

Each of our programmes are tailored to the student and are delivered by a carefully selected team of mentors who provide focussed support with each and every aspect of the process - from university selection to essay writing and interview prep.

By attending our talk you will receive the opportunity to book a 1:1 university strategy meeting for you and your parents with one of our expert Academic Advisors. They will review your academic and extracurricular profile, provide tailored guidance as to suitable university pathways and outline what you need to do to achieve your goals.
