Oxbridge Application Support - French, German and Spanish
bespoke languages tuition
tuition, help, tutor
Our Oxbridge preparation tutorials are designed to meet the needs of tutees wishing to make an application to read French, German or Spanish (single or joint honours) at one of the world-renowned Oxford or Cambridge (Oxbridge) Universities.
Our tutorials have two objectives:
. To guide tutees through the whole process of applying to Oxbridge;
. To prepare tutees thoroughly for Oxbridge admissions tests and interviews.
By understanding how interviews and admissions tests work, and what tutors are looking for, tutees can maximise their potential in application and increase their chances of securing an offer.
Our Oxbridge preparation tutorials focus on the following:
Course choice - Tutees are guided through the variety of Modern Foreign Language courses to make sure their chosen course is compatible with their skills, strengths, interests, selected Year 12/13 subjects and career aspirations.
College selection - Tutees are guided through the process of choosing the college that is most suitable for them.
Personal statement - This is an important part of the application process, and tutees work closely with their tutor to produce their draft and final personal statements.
Interview technique - Tutees whose written application is successful will be called to interview. Oxbridge interviews are notoriously challenging and our tutorials help tutees meet these challenges. Tutees participate in mock interviews during which they tackle questions and scenarios pertinent to their chosen course of study.
Admissions tests - Tutees who are called to interview will be required to complete Oxbridge admissions tests. For Oxford these will be the Modern Language Admission Test (MLAT), the Language Aptitude Test and the Linguistics Test (for tutees whose chosen course is combined with linguistics or includes the study of linguistics in the first year). For Cambridge this will be the Modern and Medieval Languages (MML) written test. Tutees work through proprietary questions and papers, as well as published specimen papers, to help develop their language skills, familiarise themselves with format and question type, and build confidence.
