Oxford Elite Education works with our clients through every step in the university application process. The application process can be divided into five stages:
CONSULTATION & SELECTION OF UNIVERSITIES
You will be spending a large part of your life so make sure it’s the city and course for you; important for us to know your life goals and interests. University is about more than just study – choosing the right city can be the difference between a miserable time and a phenomenal one.
We have a large network of alumni from nearly every major UK university and as such are well place to give you advice
To enter top universities in the UK, you will need to pass an International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, test with a score of at least 6.5; for Oxford and Cambridge this score needs to be 7.0 (with a score of at least 7.0 in each module of the exam).
At OEE, we provide English language tutoring to get you up to the right IELTS level for UK study.
For all UK undergraduate courses, students must apply through UCAS system. With UCAS the trick is to prepare early – the whole procedure – filling in the application form is a long process. Universities want to know not only about your grades, but also your character. For this reason you need to provide a letter of recommendation from a trusted referee, as well as submitting the all important personal statement.
For masters programmes, applicants must apply directly to the university, there are rarely interviews, which means that the personal statement becomes even more vital, as does your academic CV – work experience outside of the classroom, you must demonstrate a real passion for your chosen field and have a clear idea of where you want the masters programme to take you. Having a thesis idea in mind is never a bad thing either!
INTERVIEW AND ADMISSION TEST PREPARATION
Elite institutions increasingly require an interview in order to whittle down applicants so that only the very best gain entry. Oxford, Cambridge, as well as some London institutions such as LSE and Imperial, set specific exams for those wishing to embark on their courses.
Gain an advantage by knowing what sort of questions will be asked so that you’ll feel as comfortable as possible when that big day comes.
