What we do works.

Your Cambridge Philosophy Programme provides you with a comprehensive suite of support to ensure you have the best chance of success in your application.

Tap on the cards to see more details about our programme’s components.

Firstly we will help you make the right decision regarding course and University choice.

Whether this is through a meeting with our Academic Director or by arranging sessions with tutors from Oxford and/or Cambridge in your considered subject areas. We will help you come to an informed conclusion on one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

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.

A crucial component of your Philosophy programme is one-on-one tutoring sessions with an expert Cambridge tutor who was in the top 10% of their cohort.

These sessions offer you an opportunity to work on difficult topics and areas requiring improvement, allowing you to lead the direction of your teaching. Your tutor, who has successfully navigated the application process, will provide valuable support and guidance to help you overcome any challenges.

Honed in one-to-one support with your expert Philosophy Cambridge tutor – all with homework and reports.

UniAdmissions has produced over 100 publications on the Oxbridge application process, and your program provides access to all relevant books related to your subject. These books are filled with effective techniques, helpful tips and proven examples.

As a student enrolled in our program, you will also gain access to exclusive features, such as the UniAdmissions Academy and the exclusive UniAdmissions Reading Lists.

Finely-tuned Philosophy resources in a range of mediums to help you practice and learn for your application.

Our all-day Intensive Courses offer a complete examination of every aspect of your application, including your Personal Statement and Interview.

With the guidance of highly experienced tutors, you’ll delve into your preparation and learn the best techniques to ensure your success. The sessions are highly engaging, offering group discussions and chances to speak one-to-one with your course instructor.

Highly effective one-day courses that cover key components of your application, including your Personal Statement and Interview.

Showcasing a deep interest and passion for your chosen subject is crucial to meeting the stringent requirements of the Cambridge application process. This is why we offer regular Enrichment Seminars.

These seminars offer you the chance to delve deeper into your subject beyond the standard curriculum, allowing you to develop a well-rounded understanding of your subject, which is exactly what Cambridge admissions tutors look for. You will be able to attend these sessions from your first week on the programme. 

Develop a deeper understanding of your subject and go beyond your curriculum, as you would at Oxbridge.

Upon enrollment, you will be assigned to a Form, where you will receive additional support led by your Form Mentor. This includes fortnightly sessions led by your Form Mentor, who will guide you through various general aspects of your application.

Additionally, you can schedule unlimited one-on-one sessions with your Form Mentor, who will help you with any challenges you may face during the application process. They will ensure that you are using the program components effectively and have a well-structured plan for your preparation.

You’ll join your Humanities Academic Head’s form group for guidance and unlimited mentoring sessions. 

Access all of your resources and support in one convenient place with your customised UniAdmissions Portal.

As a student, this is your Programme hub. As a parent, you can track your child’s progress through the Programme and receive regular reports.

You’ll get access upon enrolment to a Programme.

A personalised online platform which will guide you through your Programme as a student, or help you track your child’s progress as a parent.

Students applying more than 12 months ahead of time will have access to our Head Start seminars, which are geared toward students who are in the early stages of the application process. These seminars provide a solid foundation for your future education and allow you to fully benefit from your UniAdmissions Programme.

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.

One-to-one sessions provide a highly personalised form of preparation focused directly on your specific needs. Head Start students receive access to extra hours of one-to-one sessions with their expert tutor to ensure they do not have any weak areas when going into their application year.

Students on our Head Start Programmes will get additional hours of one-to-one tutoring time along with their Head Start seminars.

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:


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


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


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


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

Learn more about our admissions criteria on our UniAdmissions Students page. 


Got some questions about the Cambridge Philosophy 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!

Oxford does not offer a single Philosophy course, with it instead being offered alongside other subjects. Therefore if you want to study just Philosophy then Cambridge will be the choice for you. 

If you are interested in studying Philosophy at Oxford, check out our PPE and PPL Premium Programmes to find out how we can support your application. 

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

All applicants are required to sit the Philosophy Admissions Assessment (PAA); you will receive expert one-to-one tuition to ensure you achieve the best score possible. 

Your tutor will be on hand to help you decide what written work to submit as part of your application – the college you are applying to will also let you know what sort of work it should be. 

As with all the materials that form part of your Programme, you will find the reading list on the Preparation Portal under the ‘Extras’ tab.
