This programme provides students with a clear structure for making a strong application to Oxford or Cambridge Universities, giving them monthly tasks that help them to mak ecorrect decisions and prepare themselves appropriately. Applicants to Oxford and Cambridge must be heading for outstanding A level results but there are many other ways in which they must show their suitability for these prestigious and demanding universities.
Our programme covers all aspects of the Oxbridge application process, supporting students so that they can make sensible degree choices and engage in appropriate super-curricular activities before the formal application process begins. Participants will usually complete a 5000-word Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which helps to demonstrate their intellectual curiosity and ambition. They must also write a distinctive and pertinent personal statement. As well as supporting students in these tasks, the programme prepares them for the pre-interview assessment tests and interviews.
The advice and support that Ashbourne offers its students has led to excellent results, with the University of Cambridge being one of our most popular university destinations in recent years. The programme is led by Will Stockland and Christopher Masters, who both studied at the University of Oxford.
