Welcome to the much-awaited Oxbridge Resource page for students who with to apply to Cambridge and Oxford University!
What comes to mind when you think of Oxbridge? A mystical land beyond your reach? Harry Potter? A place where only perfect card-board cutout students belong to?
Our oxbridge resources aim to debunk the myths associated with the application process and provide you with a realistic insight into Oxbridge Medicine. Our intention is to reassure you in these confusing times where you may feel concerned as to what will happen in the year ahead. We will do this by sharing our advice and the personal experiences of our students with you. We understand that the system is not going to work in the same way for you due to the current circumstances preventing you from going on open days, and undertaking work experience and volunteering you may have had planned.
Koby and Laura founded this Oxbridge resource. Previously two Year 13 students who managed to secure four medical school offers each, including Cambridge and Oxford respectively. Both now study Medicine at Oxford and Cambridge. They have both been part of the Medic Mentor family for the past year and in their words “can’t begin to imagine where we would be without their support”.
Talking to medical students who have been through the Oxbridge application process has been incredibly useful, and they aimed to replicate this with this resource. This journey will require you to invest your time and effort, but with the guidance we will be providing, we hope to set you on the right path so you can push yourself and rise to the challenge.
Additionally, we will be directing you to a myriad of opportunities within Medic Mentor and outside, in order to strengthen your application to medical school and Oxbridge in particular.
However, with this resource, we hope to guide you each step of the way from aspects such as your decision to apply to Oxbridge, their entry requirements, volunteering, work experience, interview preparation and beyond.
Be sure to check out blog posts specific to applying to Oxbridge! Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have regarding the Oxbridge application process on the open Oxbridge slack channel (Medic Mentor affiliated students).
We will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. We wish you all the best in your medical school applications and hope that you make the most out of this resource we are putting together for you!
