OISC: Oxford and Cambridge University Entrance Preparation

Published Lyons Languages on Wednesday, October 23, 2019

OISC University Entrance

During the Autumn term and also school holidays, we arrange preparatory programmes for Oxford and Cambridge University Entrance candidates. The seminars are led by experienced Oxford and Cambridge tutors, including people from admissions in colleges of the University.

Participants must have a good school or college record and be fluent in English. (For those students who do not meet the English Language requirement we arrange an intensive English programme first).Tuition is a mixture of private lessons and seminar groups, which are very international in their intake and average only 5 or 6 students at any one time.

The programme includes:

1. Advice and orientation on applying to Oxford or Cambridge

2. Written tests at and before the interview (all subjects to which this applies), with lessons with specialist tutors eg, ELAT, TSA, etc

3. Interview practice (general)  and Current Affairs discussion groups with an admissions tutor from the university and other experienced Oxford tutors

4. Interview practice (subject-specific)

5. Personal statements.

6. If required the course can be combined with a revision of school subjects relevant to Oxford or Cambridge prep. (We teach for A-Level, IB, AP, and Abitur)
