Since launching in 2012, Target Oxbridge has helped over 200 students to secure Oxbridge offers.
Doing the Target Oxbridge program was a really beneficial experience. It changed a lot of my thoughts on what it was like to attend Oxford and Cambridge. The four sessions covered a lot of different topics like what it is like to attend universities, student life, the costs of studying and the demographic of students at the university. It had taught me a lot of useful information; I didn’t know how the university system was structured until I did this program! Personally, seeing a lot of people who came from similar backgrounds to myself was something I found quite special and gave me a lot of motivation for me to attend either university.
It went into extensive depth about the kind of applications colleges hold in high regard and the best A-level combination to go into medicine or law. Overall, it is an experience I would definitely recommend applying to.
