The balance of subjects is designed to meet the needs of each student. Normally s/he would receive 20-25 lessons a week, depending on the subject mix. We can assist with school placement if required, and arrange practice sessions for the interviews

For younger students preparation for Boarding School entrance tests and interviews usually includes Verbal or Non-Verbal reasoning, together with English and Maths. We can also give support for preparation for Common Entrance and Scholarship examinations.

For older students the programme consists of pre-GCSE and pre- ALevel work. We provide tuition for the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination, and Cambridge or TOEFL examinations are also available.

We have excellent links with a many British Schools and we are also able to arrange guardianship for younger students.

Special preparatory courses for Oxford and Cambridge University Entrance:
Photos of Oxford International Study Centre, OxfordDuring the summer vacation and in the autumn term we assist a number of students in applying to Oxford or Cambridge Universities. These universities have interviews and entrance tests in November and December. The tuition is individual or in very small groups or two or three students. All the tutors involved are themselves graduates of Oxford or Cambridge, and are experienced tutors. Students can also combine Oxbridge preparation with revision for ALevel or IB.

At both Universities the interviews are very important. They are designed to assess a student’s understanding and critical ability, and also his or her enthusiasm for and commitment to the chosen subjects. It is important for students to be ableto “think outside the box”. In many subjects there are also written tests at interview. Sometimes these are a test of the student’s ability to move beyond the demands of ALevel or IB and to tackle more demanding (and often more general) questions. In other subjects which have not been studied at school the tests are designed to assess aptitude, eg for PPE, or Law.

The tutorial courses which we arrange consist of :
- Practice for the written tests with specialist tutors, eg for ELAT, TSA
- Interview practice with both subject and general tutors
- Advice on studying at Oxford
- Advice on the Personal Statement

In general students receive twenty lessons a week, but additional or fewer lessons can be arranged if required.
