Russell Group Preparation Programme 2020-2021

Posted on

Are you thinking of studying at a competitive university?
Have you heard of the Russell Group, but don’t really know what it means?
Do you want to know more about the Oxbridge application process?

Applying to university can be a daunting process, especially if you’re aiming for Oxbridge (or any other competitive university!)

Whatever your career goals, our team of Progress Coaches are here to support you and your individual needs; but if you’re aiming high then our Oxbridge & Russell Group Preparation Programme is something you certainly want to get involved in!

Our team of specialist staff will invite you to take part in carefully planned workshops and seminars throughout your first year of study to support you in your application to the UK’s most competitive universities. In your second year of study, you will receive one-to-one support from recent Oxbridge alumni when writing your personal statements. If you are successfully selected for an interview you will receive multiple mock interviews with recent Oxford and Cambridge University alumni.
