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.

FAQs

Got some questions about the Oxford Material Science Premium Programme? You might just find the answer here. If not, you can always reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help!

Cambridge does not offer the option of studying a single science subject, and instead offer a Natural Science course, so if you want to focus on just one subject you will have to study at Oxford. 

You can learn how we can support you in your Cambridge Natural Sciences application on our Natural Sciences Programme page

As part of the Oxford Physics Programme, you will have a place on the Personal Statement, Interview, and PAT Intensive Courses.
