What are the new trends in the medical field, and how can knowing more about these trends before university help to give you an academic edge? Our tutors are highly experienced teachers and motivated academics from Oxford University, trained to help you develop your own answers to these key questions. They will guide you to think more deeply about medicine and gain academic maturity in the discipline before you apply to university.
Learning in a small group (no more than 15 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor.
Academically challenging, rooted in independent learning and fueled by critical thinking. The Oxbridge style of learning provides an unrivaled academic experience, giving access to individualised attention from Oxford tutors. The course is designed to emulate the Oxford academic experience, including workshops for developing further education and career skills.
