Comprehensive Application Support


Choosing Your College
You must first choose which Cambridge college you wish to apply to. Together, we'll discuss the disparity between colleges in terms of housing, facilities, and financial aid. We'll find the best college for you and your situation.
Writing Your HSPS Personal Statement
A strong personal statement is a key component of any Oxbridge application. Our online drafting platform will help you improve your personal statement through revisions and drafts made by our experienced team. We'll teach the key elements to include and make sure you're writing in an appropriate tone.
Preparing for the HSPSAA
HSPS applicants to Cambridge are required to sit the HSPSAA. We offer one-to-one tuition with experienced HSPS tutors to help demystify this assessment and prevent you from making any common mistakes.
HSPS Interview Preparation
The Cambridge HSPS interview is perhaps the most nerve-wracking part of the application process! These interviews are notorious for being difficult, and they are the deciding factor in whether or not you will be offered a job. Working through common HSPS questions, mock interviews in a realistic interview setting, and challenging you to Oxbridge-style debates and challenges assure you're ready for interview day.
Group Workshops and Enrichment Seminars
Take full advantage of our group sessions to meet other HSPS applicants who share your interests. We'll talk about enticing HSPS topics and learn about the unique teaching style of Oxbridge.
Life at Cambridge
Our Oxbridge Mind tutors are all Cambridge HSPS graduates or current students. As a side benefit, they can provide you with firsthand accounts of their experiences studying HSPS at Cambridge. Our tutors are top academic performers who have access to resources created by Oxbridge Mind's education and application experts.

    A bit about you

    HSPS is a subject only offered by Cambridge. I’ve always struggled with self-confidence so I never thought I would stand a chance but decided to apply anyway because of how unique the course is. Luckily for me I was successful and am so glad I decided to take the plunge and submit my application in the end.

    How did you find the programme?

    I googled practice HSPSAA questions and found the website from there.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    I was lucky in that my tutor ended up being in the college I applied for. This meant they had experience of the interview process specific to the college I wanted to go to. It was also really inspiring to hear about their day-to-day life as a student and it made me even more sure that this was what I wanted to do.

    A bit about you

    For me, the sociological aspect of HSPS is my favourite. At Cambridge we have the opportunity to intersect sociology with other social and human sciences such as international relations and human rights. When I was looking at other universities I didn’t find any other courses that had the same broad approach, and this really appealed to me. While the competition rates for the course are high, you have to be in the race to be accepted so I always thought it was worth a shot.

    How did you find the programme?

    I’d seen some YouTube videos earlier in the year and they stuck in my mind.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    The HSPSAA was something that made me extremely nervous. I couldn’t find as much practice or advice online as I wanted, so being able to talk through the assessment with a tutor who was extremely knowledgeable was priceless.

    A bit about you

    HSPS and Cambridge both have such a good reputations that it seemed like an ideal course for me to study at university. I’d also challenge anyone to take a day trip to Cambridge and not fall in love or picture themselves studying here!

    How did you find the programme?

    One of my friends was applying for Law and used the Law programme. They found it helpful so I decided to take a trial lesson for HSPS.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    My tutor felt more like a mentor in the end, someone who was supporting my application from the very beginning to the very end. It was the simple things like checking in in-between sessions to see how I was getting on, and sending Good Luck messages on the morning of the interview. I think this is what sets Oxbridge Mind apart from other tutoring services.

    How long does the HSPS programme last?
    You can use your one-on-one tutoring hours for any topic over the course of three years, including your HSPS application and A-levels (all subjects). The majority of students will begin our programme between March and August 2023 for 2024 entrance, however, we have many students who begin earlier or later!

With over 70 hours of one-on-one mentorship, you'll get the greatest possible help to increase your chances of success. Our other packages are also highly effective, but we have less time to dig in-depth into topics or areas of weakness than we do with the Platinum Package because we have less hours of tuition.

    Without a doubt! We offer prepared lesson plans for the HSPS interview, personal statement, and other areas of your application to the HSPS programme. You can use your 1-1 hour as you see fit across the application.

You are free to ask questions there at any time, for example, to prepare lessons or for revision guidance. Our support team is always available, and we are pleased to speak with you over the phone if you prefer.
