2017 Oxbridge Students

​We are very pleased to announce that seven students have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities for this coming September. As part of the Oxbridge Programme, the College offers students regular sessions helping students with the following areas; writing personal statements, interview techniques and preparing for interviews. We also offer subject specific support within departments, where heads of the department or designated staff members run special extension programmes enabling students to explore their subject in greater depth, often outsides of the confines of the syllabus. In addition to support offered within the College, visitors and representatives from both Oxford and Cambridge visit and run workshops on interviews, the application procedure and life at the university.

Mock interviews are also arranged and run within departments, although in some cases, experts within the students chosen field volunteer their time to run mock interviews. We can't thank them enough for their contribution to the students' success. The students applying to Oxford have admissions tests and heads of departments and divisional heads run separate sessions to help them prepare. The Oxbridge programme at Esher College is run by our Oxbridge Coordinator, Shai Moghul. For further details, please contact smoghul@esher.ac.uk
