Thank you for your interest in Target Oxbridge. We are now operating a waiting list for the 2019-20 programme. We recommend submitting your application as soon as possible to maximise your chances of securing a place on the programme.

If you would like to be considered for Target Oxbridge candidacy, please fill in the form below.

The standard is high. Applicants should have a minimum of 5 grades at A*, 9, 8 or 7 at GCSE. For Medicine, applicants will ideally have a minimum of 8 grades at A*, 9 or 8. Please use the best possible presentation, spelling, and grammar: this matters and we will judge you on it.

There are five sections as part of the form. Please read each prompt or question very carefully, and be meticulous with your answers, making sure you complete all sections fully. We recommend that you draft your longer answers in a Word or Pages document first, to avoid losing your work.

Legal note: we ask for your contact details so that we are able to contact you about your application. We collect statistics on race, gender, educational and socio-economic background for diversity monitoring purposes.
