Description

I have personally interviewed as an applicant to Oxford and Cambridge over 2-separate years. Studied as a Literature major at Warwick University (best in the world for Shakespeare at my time of study in 2005). Since then I've gone onto assist a multitude of candidates successfully apply to Oxbridge (Oxford and Cambridge).

If you want to study and be amongst the world's best - than this truly is the ONLY course you will need.

Unsure about how to actually apply to such an institution? 

Maybe you're an international student and you feel that applying to Oxford or Cambridge is just too expensive?

Perhaps you ARE applying but you lack the support or resources to pay for an ongoing personal tutor?

You might not be sure about what UCAS is, how the process actually works?

Maybe it's something you would like your daughter/niece/nephew to approach one day?

If ANY of those things apply to you? Than this is the course for you 

In this comprehensive course you'll be access to me as I actually build a personal statement from scratch so you can get inspiration and learn how to write one for yourself.

The Background
2 Lectures 37:58

In this lecture you’ll discover more of all of the top-tier interviews that Deepak has had as well as his professional background. You’ll also be learning more in these critical areas:

  • Where Oxford and Cambridge actually are in the United Kingdom.

  • Why they are the best universities in the world

  • We’ll take a look at some of the well known South Asians who have attended Oxford and Cambridge

  • Finally we’re look at a couple of areas that most students don’t consider when applying to Oxford and Cambridge - watch the video to find out more :)

In this lecture we’re going to be considering costs.

Going to Oxford, Cambridge or indeed any university involves spending £££. This is what we will tackle.

More specifically we’ll look at what the latest data says upon the cost of attending Oxbridge (Oxford and Cambridge) for an EU Student, alongside the costs for a NON-EU student - it makes for interesting reading.

However that’s not all - scholarships are definitely a possibility to make the funding of studying abroad much more affordable - and you’ll be shown some options for further exploration

Then we will finish up by considering the actual cost of living and more at Oxford and Cambridge

Making The Application And Understanding UCAS
3 Lectures 48:13

In this lecture we’ll be looking at the university entry requirements for Oxbridge in the UK, US, EU as well as specifically for Indian students

But we won’t stop there - we’ll take it even further and consider the specific entry requirements for English, Mathematics, Physics, Economics & Management as well as Medicine - we’re going to look at some of the most popular courses and map out your way to getting a place!

The Courses You Should Apply To
23:34

Now we’re going to go deeper and look at the actual UCAS system - which is what you’ll need to use if you’re making applications to the UK.

In doing this we will work through some key aspects which are as follows:

What is UCAS?

This is the first area we’ll look at - understand what UCAS is and what it stands for

UCAS Criteria and Deadlines

The all important part is knowing when you need to apply as the official deadlines vary somewhat for what you will need when applying to Oxford or Cambridge to ensure that you have the maximum chance of getting a place!

A Walk Through The Application Process

We’ll then actually go on a walk-through the application process and look at registration right through to the actual writing of the personal statement itself - the most critical part of the whole process!

Getting To Grips With UCAS
11:59

We will be continuing to look at developing the perfect personal statement in this lecture - broken down into these specific sections:

First we will explore actual Personal Statement criteria - i.e. the rules that are associated with developing a personal statement

Then we will walk you through the Do’s and Don’t of Writing A Personal Statement - and what you must really consider in order to be a success on the platform

Finally - UCAS actually have a personal statement guide which helps you build an outline for your personal statement - we will walk through this as well!

Writing Your Application To Oxford Or Cambridge
4 Lectures 01:37:13

Now we get to the real meat of the application process for Oxford and Cambridge - you’ll be taken through the process of writing a personal statement from scratch - and watch me as I build it with you

The first key part will be to write down potential ideas based upon your history and experience to then get set up for writing. This part is critical in developing the perfect personal statement

Developing Ideas For What To Write
20:20

In this lecture we will continue the writing of the personal statement process and going through the questions that UCAS asks us to answer and then focussing upon perfecting this.

We will be going through the questions one by one and developing very rough answers for each of them

Building Your Personal Statement From Scratch
34:27

Personal statement writing continued…

We’re coming to the final elements of the personal statement - and this entails taking all of the separate strands of it which we have built into what should be close to the personal statement we could actually submit to Oxford and Cambridge so do make sure you tune in!

Finishing The Personal Statement
39:08

In this final lecture we will discuss another key element of the application process which is making sure that you have the appropriate reference as this person too will need to write about you and make this 4,000 characters long - just like your own personal statement

This is a critical point for you to consider!

Make sure you watch to learn more!
