Eligibility

The eligibility criteria for each programme at Oxbridge Summers varies slightly as mentioned below.  Generally speaking, we admit a student if he or she satisfies our eligibility criteria and submits a complete application.

Applicants should typically be 16 years of age when attending Oxbridge Summers.  Exceptions can be made on an individual basis and subject to the review and approval of the admissions committee.  Applicants over the age of 19 are not accepted at Oxbridge Summers.


Scholars Programme

Applicant transcripts should demonstrate a love of learning through his or her academic (and other) interests, and grades!  Most importantly, we check the application for indication that the student is very keenly interested in Oxbridge Summers.  We also want to make sure that the student’s recommendation/s shows that he or she is going to be a valuable member and contributor to the social aspect of the programme – someone who will be a peer to his or her fellow students. Because we encourage diversity, we welcome students who demonstrate diversity of background and interests.


Orientation to UK Universities

Most students are welcome to this programme.  For applicants interested in the two week programme, we check the application for indication that the student is indeed interested in applying him- or herself during the sessions that require some effort – such as the writing workshops.  We also want to make sure that the applicant’s recommendation/s shows that he or she is going to be a valuable member and contributor to the social aspect of the programme – someone who will be a peer to his or her fellow students.


Comprehensive English

Again, most applicants are welcome to this programme.  For applicants interested in the more basic English courses, we check to make sure that the applicant has some basic knowledge of English – enough to allow him or her to fill out the Oxbridge Summers application form (with some help, if need be).  We also want to make sure that the student’s recommendation/s shows that he or she is going to be a valuable member and contributor to the social aspect of the programme – someone who will be a peer to his or her fellow students. Because we encourage diversity, we welcome students who demonstrate diversity of background and interests.
