Study abroad information, tips, student testimonials and other useful information for students attending language programs, high schools and universities abroad
Prestigious universities in Britain (“Russell group” universities) welcome applications from the brightest and the best students worldwide. There is no magic formula for success… you must have an excellent school record and show that you have the stamina to work hard in a very competitive environment.
Almost certainly you will apply to University (and remember the closing date for Oxford and Cambridge and for courses such as Law and Medicine at some other universities is earlier, October not January!) before the results of your final school examinations, or A Levels, or IB. This means that your previous results ((I) GCSE or equivalent) are very important, since it is the only solid evidence that admissions tutors will have of your academic ability. Typically Oxford expects at least 6 A* grades in GCSE.
