What Is Oxbridge and should I apply?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

Applying to Oxford or Cambridge, often referred to as Oxbridge, is a competitive process and differs in approach compared to your regular UCAS application. Before submitting the application, we first need to identify if Oxbridge is right for you. Answering this question involves the same process as you would with any other college. You need to ask yourself questions like:

1) Does it offer the courses I am looking for?
2) Will I enjoy the collegiate system Oxbridge has, where there isn’t a centralized system but one where each college within the University is self-governed and has independent resources, endowments and property?
3) Do I meet their expected entry requirements, and is my profile similar to what they are looking for? In other words, is there a good fit?

Also remember, you can only apply to one or the other. You cannot send an application to BOTH Oxford or Cambridge at an undergraduate level.
