    Oxford & Cambridge Mock Interview Course Overview

    The Oxford & Cambridge Mock Interview Course

    Mentors who have sat on Oxbridge interview panels will coach applicants in all of the key interview skills necessary to gain entrance to Oxford & Cambridge courses. The course is divided into a morning seminar, and mock interviews in the afternoon.

    The Oxbridge Mock Interview Course is an intensive, day-long Course held by EIBs most experienced tutors and Oxbridge graduates. The Course is held in the weeks following the UCAS deadline for Oxford & Cambridge applications and prior to their respective interview dates. Our mentors will give students invaluable advice and support in all of the key interview skills to help you shine at the interview.

    As all UCAS applications to Oxford & Cambridge are due by October 15th, this course focuses solely on preparing applicants for interview, and will not involve any support for personal statements, university choices or aptitude test preparation. Should you wish to receive guidance throughout your Oxbridge application, Elite IB have a range of support options which we would be delighted to discuss with you, and invite you to see our Oxbridge Consultancy page here or to get in touch at [email protected]

    Who We Are

    Elite IB offer invaluable advice and support through all the stages of the Oxford & Cambridge application process.

    Oxford & Cambridge Mock Interview Course Course Structure

    How is the course organised? The Oxford & Cambridge Mock Interview Course runs over a single day in December with an optional additional day of mock interviews and college tours the day after - prior to interviews taking place at Oxford & Cambridge in December and early January. Applicants are encouraged to engage with our team before the day of their mock interviews, sharing their personal statement, examples of their written work, academic profile, and interests and extra-curricular activities with their Consultant beforehand in order for their interviews to be best tailored to their profile. Applicants join our Consulting team in the morning for a series of academic seminars and workshops, where students discuss interview technique, questions, and the panel of interviewers students should expect to encounter. This workshop environment encourages students to engage with other applicants and to share technique and insight into the interview process. Morning sessions are capped at eight students per group, to ensure students are able to benefit from personal and involved support. In the afternoon students sit down to three mock interviews with their Consultants, covering the questions they should expect as an applicant to their field of study in the first two, before a final non-academic interview. After each, applicants receive feedback and recommendations of how to continue to prepare. Day Two: Additional Mock Interview & College Tour in Oxford or Cambridge (Optional) Students attending the Mock Interview Course can choose to append the course with an additional day of Mock Interviews and with a guided tour around their chosen Oxford or Cambridge college with a member of our Consulting Team.

    Scholarships Elite IB are proud to bring our outstanding quality of support to so many students every year. Yet, whilst private tuition is one of the best ways to ensure students reach their potential, it remains out of reach for students from a range of backgrounds. Our dedication to ensuring every student has access to the best quality of education is why we offer full- and part-scholarships to students to attend our courses. Elite IBs Young Achiever Scholarships are open to students who demonstrate outstanding academic merit; who attend a non fee-paying school, or a fee-paying institution with financial aid; and who demonstrate a real financial need. The Young Achiever Scholarships are awarded on the basis of these criteria and on information contained in each students application form.

    It is a pleasure (and a relief!) to know of institutions like yours that can guide students - and parents - through the demanding requirements of school and college preparation. Parent of student applying for 2018 entry

    Fantastic course, thank you very much! So many good things to look over and prepare for. Thank you! Mock Interview Course 2016 student I am writing this email to thank you for the advice and support you have given me since the beginning of this process. Regarding the Cambridge interview I had, it went well overall. Surprisingly, I enjoyed both interviews. I was asked about lots of different things as each of the interviewers were specialists in different areas of the biological natural sciences, having a molecular biologist, a biological mathematician, a neuroscientist and the director of studies of Emmanuel College. I also remembered [my consultants] Wei Hao and Tim during the interview because they asked me about cystic fibrosis, I remembered you asking me that question and going through it together, so thank you! Essentially, what I have achieved wouldn't have been possible in some way without you. It has been a fascinating learning process during my talks with Wei Hao and incredibly useful advice from Tim. Now it is just a matter of waiting until the 12th of January to know the result Thank so much again for mentoring me and it has been a pleasure working with you. Applicant to Natural Sciences, University of Cambridge

    In my interactions with Charlotte I gained a lot of knowledge for my Cambridge interview for Land Economy. By taking three mock interviews, I got an idea of what to expect in the interview and how to handle questions I didnt know the answer to. During the interviews she also gave me a lot of information about the college, the course, as well as being my interviewer. Charlotte was of great help throughout our sessions and prompt in replying to my emails queries too. She was a great help in preparing me for the interview, and I'm sure it wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did had it not been for her. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help in preparation for the Land Economy at Cambridge. Applicant to Land Economy, University of Cambridge
