Choosing Your College
Do you know which college you wish to go to? Regardless of whether you choose Oxford or Cambridge, you must decide which college you want to apply to and stay in. We'll explain the differences between colleges in terms of housing, facilities, and scholarships. We'll work together to find the best college for you.
Writing Your Modern Language Personal Statement
It is known that a strong personal statement is essential for a successful Oxbridge application. Through revisions and drafts created by our experienced Modern Language team, our online drafting platform will assist you in improving your personal statement. We'll go over the key elements to include and ensure your personal statement is effective.
Preparing for the MLAT/MML
Modern Languages applicants to Oxford are required to sit the MLAT, whereas applicants to Cambridge need to take the MML. We offer one-to-one tuition with experienced Modern Language tutors to help demystify both of these assessments and prevent you from making common mistakes.
Modern Language Interview Preparation
Perhaps the most stressful part of the application process - is the Oxbridge Languages interview! These interviews are well known for being very challenging and are the final hurdle to getting your offer. Our Oxbridge tutors make sure you're prepared for interview day by working through common Oxbridge Modern Languages questions. The Modern Language tutors will go through mock interviews in a realistic interview setting and challenge you to Oxbridge-style debates and challenges.
Group Workshops and Enrichment Seminars
Benefit from our interactive group sessions and connect with other like-minded Modern Language applicants at Oxbridge Mind. We'll discuss interesting cultural topics and learn about the unique Oxbridge teaching style.

All of our Oxbridge Mind tutors are either Oxbridge Modern Languages graduates or current students. This means they can provide you with firsthand experience studying at Oxford or Cambridge.

    A bit about you

    Whenever I went on holiday as a child I found myself fascinated by all the different cultures and languages I’d hear. I knew I wanted to travel the world when I grew up so I decided to study languages. I won’t lie the year abroad sealed the deal for me. I wasn’t sure if I had a shot at Cambridge because I didn’t start learning languages until secondary school and was convinced that every other applicant would be basically fluent! Don’t worry I was very wrong in that regard.

    How did you find the programme?

    I was searching for practice interview questions and came across the website.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    I’m so thankful for my tutor. She really reassured me and got rid of all the silly myths I believed about Cambridge students – they’re not all fluent in 15 languages! It made me feel like it was a realistic goal, and she helped me put a plan together to really prepare well and maximise my chances.

    A bit about you

    If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be studying at Oxford I probably would have laughed at you. I never saw myself as the academic type or even someone who would fit in here. However my Spanish teacher at school encouraged me to take the subject seriously, and when it came to be time to look into universities I thought why not apply and see what happens!

    How did you find the programme?

    I felt daunted by the notoriously tricky admissions process so did a quick Google search for companies offering support.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    The lessons were great because the tutors really went out of their way to make them suited to you and your needs. They’ve also been through the process so recently and it was amazing to do a mock interview with tutors who understood exactly how I was feeling. I think I did so many mock interviews that I simply practiced the nerves away by the end.

    A bit about you

    My sister studied at Oxford and whenever we went to visit her I would always imagine myself studying there. It’s such a beautiful city and I quickly fell in love. Studying at Oxford has been a dream come true for me.

    How did you find the programme?

    Quite unconventionally actually! My sister is a tutor with the Medicine programme and told me how useful she would have found the programme when applying which prompted me to take a look.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    The programme was helpful from the very start to the very end – particularly around interview time when the stress started to mount!

All tutors are DBS checked, and all lessons are recorded to provide a safe and friendly learning environment. Throughout the course, your Modern Languages tutor will build a bond with you, functioning as a teacher, facilitator, and friend!
    Is the Oxbridge Modern Languages Tuition online or face-to-face?
    We offer all of our Oxbridge Modern Languages courses totally online via Zoom for your convenience because we understand how hectic your life is. We've prepared some amazing presentations and will share our screen with you during the session to make learning more engaging and productive. With our flexible online Modern Languages tuition, we can work around your schedule and educate you from the comfort of your own home at a time that is most convenient for you. Lessons and tutorials are recorded so you can review them later if you forget something. We have structured tutorials for the MLAT, and Modern Languages Interviews and each session will be tailored to you and the specific areas you need to focus on to improve your performance.
    What materials do Oxbridge Modern Languages Tutors use?
    Our Oxbridge Modern Languages Tutors offer a wide selection of Modern Languages MLAT/MML resources to their students. We've built a Modern Languages course just for you, based on years of research and examiner knowledge. All of our tutors will cover the whole Oxbridge Modern Languages programme. While teaching Modern Languages might be hit or miss, we make sure that our resources and Modern Languages tutors are suited to your specific needs. You will receive a combination of MLAT video tutorials, MLAT question banks, MLAT notes, and more in addition to the one-on-one sessions. These tools can be used in conjunction with and in between one-on-one lessons to help students consolidate their learning and progress week by week.
    What is unique about our Oxbridge Mind Oxbridge Modern Languages Tutoring?
    There are many different Oxbridge Modern Languages preparatory courses to select from, and figuring out which one is right for you might be difficult.

    Do I get to choose from your Oxbridge Modern Languages tutors?
    We want to make certain that you and your Modern Languages tutor are on the same page and can collaborate effectively.

Get in touch with our Oxbridge team today to learn more!
    Why is it important to get Oxbridge Modern Languages application help?
    We understand how tough it is to apply to prestigious Oxford or Cambridge programmes, especially in the field of Modern Languages.

    How does enrolment and payment work?
    When you apply to Modern Languages, one of our Oxbridge professionals will meet with you to review your application and assess your suitability for the Modern Languages program. You have the option of paying in full or in 12 monthly installments if you are accepted into the programme. We have a number of payment alternatives available, which can be discussed with a member of our staff.
    Which package is the most popular?

You'll get the most help possible with over 70 hours of one-on-one tuition to improve your chances of success. Our other packages are also very effective, but because we have fewer hours of tuition, we have less time to go deeper into themes or areas of weakness than we do with the Platinum Package.
    How long does the Modern Languages programme last?
    You can use your one-on-one tutoring hours for any topic over the course of three years, including your Modern Languages Application and A-levels (all subjects). The majority of students will begin our programme between March and August 2022 for 2023 entrance, however we have many students who begin earlier or later! We can modify the programme's framework to meet your needs. Early on, we'll create a personalized plan and timeframe for you.
    What happens if I have any issues, concerns or questions?
    You'll have your own WhatsApp group with your Modern Languages tutors and the Oxbridge Mind support team. You can ask whatever questions you want there at any moment, for example, to plan classes or for revision help. Our Oxbridge customer service staff is available at all times and would welcome the opportunity to chat with you over the phone.
