You will receive a full introduction to your Programme by your Programme Manager, along with your tutor, Form Mentor and our Academic Director. Throughout your time with us, they will be here to help.

Every tuition session in your Ancient and Modern History Programme provides valuable one-on-one time with an experienced tutor who will navigate the subject matter with you.

These personalised sessions enable concentrated focus on challenging topics and areas of difficulty. With tutors who have successfully navigated the process themselves, you’ll receive tailored support and guidance for your success.

Honed in one-to-one support with your expert Ancient and Modern History Oxford tutor – all with homework and reports.

UniAdmissions offers you access to a vast library of over 100 published books covering all aspects of the Oxbridge application process, including subject theory, practice materials, and additional resources.

Every student in our Programs is matched with a dedicated Form Mentor responsible for monitoring their advancement. These mentors host fortnightly sessions to offer assistance and direction on diverse application elements, guaranteeing optimal resource utilisation.

Furthermore, should you encounter any challenges throughout your Programme, you have the option to schedule unlimited one-on-one mentoring sessions with your Form Mentor. Their main objective is to equip each student with essential tools and strategies to enhance their application success.

Sessions are created specifically for our Head Start students and focus on topics that help establish a solid foundation for your education and teach valuable life skills.

We are a private selective Oxbridge preparation school.

Our mission at UniAdmissions is to get every single one of the students we work with each year onto their chosen course at Oxford or Cambridge. Every student applying to study on our Programme goes through an initial assessment with our Admissions team. This is a 30-minute consultation (free of charge) where our team assesses your viability.

We accept students onto our exclusive Programmes based upon the following:

ACADEMIC PROFILE

Whether you have the right academic profile to be realistically considered by Oxford or Cambridge university.

WIDER PROFILE

Whether you have begun to demonstrate the kind of interest that is looked upon favourably by admissions tutors.

ATTITUDE

Whether you are approaching your application and admission to Oxbridge with the right mindset.

TIME COMMITMENT

Applying to Oxbridge takes a significant commitment – if a student cannot commit the time, we cannot work with them.

No, Cambridge only offers a standard History course. 

Applicants for Oxford Ancient and Modern History will need to sit the HAT. Support for the HAT will be included within your programme. 

The HAT Academies is a set of pre-recorded lectures and videos which take you through the HAT exam from start to finish. These courses serve as a fantastic starting point for your exam and also provide some more advanced tips.

As with everything else that makes up your Programme, you can find your recommended reading lists on the Preparation Portal under the ‘Extras’ tab.
