We'll explain how colleges differ in terms of housing, facilities, and scholarship opportunities. We'll find the ideal college for you and your situation by working together.
Writing Your History Personal Statement
Any Oxbridge applicant must provide a strong personal statement. Through revisions and drafts created by our experienced team, our online drafting platform will assist you in strengthening your personal statement.

    A bit about you

    I’ve been extremely fortunate in that everyone has always encouraged me to pursue my dream of attending an Oxbridge university. When I first learned about Oxbridge Mind, I thought it would be a good opportunity to practice my interview skills. I’m glad they did that for me because I’m not sure I would have done as well in my interview if they hadn’t.

    How did you find the programme?

    Google search.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    The quality of tutoring and the speed with which a mock interview was set up impressed me. My tutor was a current History student, and I felt like he provided me with information that I couldn’t get anywhere else. Thank you for making my day!

    A bit about you

    I’ve always wanted to pursue a degree in history. However, I was unsure if I would be accepted into either Oxford or Cambridge, my dream universities.

    How did you find the programme?

    Online search.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    Oxbridge mind really helped me prepare for the interview and learn what to expect! My tutor helped me to frame my interview answers so that I fully explained my thought process whilst at the interview.

    A bit about you

    I was always fascinated by History and my favourite hobby is to watch old history documentaries. Applying and studying at one of the top universities is dream come true!

    How did you find the programme?

    Google search and Youtube ads.

    How did it help with your Oxbridge application?

    It was extremely beneficial, in my opinion. I was able to watch the videos on a daily basis and then ask my tutor any questions I had. It was far more effective than if I had simply completed the application on my own.
