UniAdmissions have written and published over 100 books about the Oxbridge application – each UniAdmissions student has access to every book necessary books for your application, containing subject theory, practice material and much more.

You’ll also have access to the UniAdmissions Academy and the UniAdmissions Psychology Reading List – fully unique to our students.

Cambridge’s demanding application criteria often include extensive wider reading, which can be challenging to meet. This is where our Enrichment Seminars play a crucial role.

This criterion requires demonstrating genuine interest and enthusiasm for your subject so starting from week one of your Programme, you’ll participate in subject-specific Enrichment Supervision sessions. These sessions offer a deeper exploration of your subject, going beyond the standard curriculum —precisely what Admissions tutors seek.

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

Each student on our Programmes will be assigned to a form group overseen by a Form Mentor. These mentors conduct fortnightly sessions, offering guidance on various aspects of the application process and resource utilisation.

Should you encounter difficulties during your Programme, you have the option to schedule unlimited one-on-one mentoring sessions with your Form Mentor. Their role is to ensure every student maximises their chances of success in the application process.

You’ll be placed into a form group with your Humanities academic head. They will make sure you are on track, and you will receive unlimited mentoring sessions.

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, if you are applying to Cambridge, there is no official Admissions Test for you to take. Some colleges may require you to take a written assessment and/or submit written work so make sure to be aware of this if a college you are considering is one of them. 

The equivalent course to Psychological and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Oxford is Experimental Psychology. While similar in scope, the two courses do differ in certain ways, including the course curriculums. 

If you are interested in studying Experimental Psychology, discover our Oxford Experimental Psychology Premium Programme to learn how we can triple your changes of success. 

Of course, the decision is ultimately yours and yours alone, but your tutor can assist with your decision process by offering up their own opinion.
