Oxbridge students 2013

Enrichment - Oxbridge

Do you love your subject? Are you enthusiastic about being challenged and stretched academically? Then you should think about applying to Oxford or Cambridge University.

Recent generations of Greenhead students have been very successful at gaining offers, and achieving them. Their success rate is well above the national average for such applications. The subjects applied for cross the whole college curriculum as well as subjects not studied for at College. The information below will give you some idea of how well they have done.

Here are some non-valid reasons not to apply:

Have you a good set of GCSE grades to be considered? Would you get the A-level grades needed? (Grades A or A* are generally needed) Are you enthusiastic about the subject you want to read at University? So why not consider Oxbridge as one of your five UCAS choices.

What next?

There will be five open meetings from February half-term to Easter, where you can find out more and ask questions (you only need to attend one).

In March we organise coaches to the Oxford and Cambridge Student Conference at Haydock Park.
