Pre–university courses

Bucksmore Education offers an extraordinary opportunity for upper-intermediate to advanced-level English 16 – 18 years old students to study pre-university courses at the renowned Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. If you want to explore your chosen field in depth, this is certainly a perfect programme that will help make more informed decisions when picking the right university course.

For the greatest efficiency and stronger student-teacher communication, the classes have a maximum of 6 students; this allows for individualised attention in every session. Additionally, most teachers are alumni of these universities or are currently teaching at them – so you can be sure that they know what it takes to get into your top choice school!

“The smaller the group of students, the faster the progress. It is possible to make about the same amount of progress in one hour of tutoring with a very small group as in 10 hours in a large class”
– Laurence Howard, Professor of Creative Writing at Oxford University and instructor of this module in this course.
