The programme is designed for students anywhere in the world who are targeting top-ranking universities.

The programme, designed by world-class educator Yasmin Sarwar, is built on Oxford International College’s Three Pillars of Success that has led the school to the number one A Level ranking in the UK.

Programme Offerings

This offering combines three innovative offerings into one single experience.  Oxford International College’s successful University Preparation Programme, which has delivered unparalleled university destinations, and is built of the Three Pillars of Success:

Alongside the unique Global Space Design Challenge at Imperial College London, delivered by some of the world’s leading academics, and with the option to add InvestIN Education’s highly sought-after online Internships offering a practical insight into careers.

Programme Elements

The programme has five unique parts that support students to achieve academic success, all key for a successful university application.

We also offer a Young Learners Programme suitable for students aged 14 plus.  This focuses on the fundamental skills required for when the time to apply to university arrives in a few years time.  It includes areas such as problem solving, critical thinking, essay writing, academic enrichment and an introduction to personal statements and admissions tests.
