Oxbridge Preparation Programme

A successful programme which, for two decades, has provided individual advice and support for those who wish to apply for leading institutions throughout the UK.

The programme has given students the best possible preparation for acceptance to Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities. The Oxbridge preparation programme is a weekly tutorial programme which runs in addition to our A Level studies.

The programme also features visits to Cambridge and Oxford universities, where students receive application advice and guidance. Students stay in halls of residence and have direct access to university admissions tutors who can advise on what it takes to become an Oxbridge student. Students will also have the opportunity to explore the university and the local area.

68 Gower College Swansea students have been accepted to study at Oxford or Cambridge in the last severn years – an outstanding number from one institution.

There are specific entry requirements and costs associated with our Oxbridge programme. Please email international@gcs.ac.uk for details.

Programme highlights:

  • Preparation interviews with Oxbridge alumni
  • Preparation interviews with Gower College Swansea alumni who are either currently studying at Oxbridge or who have graduated from Oxbridge
  • Aptitude test preparation: UKCAT, BMAT and STEP
  • Overnight visits to Cambridge and Oxford universities
  • Weekly tutorials

Gower College Swansea is an excellent college with superb support for students. I discovered my interest in linguistics through the Oxbridge program and have since been offered a place to study the subject at the University of Cambridge.
