Oxbridge Support

Entry to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is particularly competitive, so the College has an intensive programme to support all Oxbridge applications.

How will we help you?

At Truro and Penwith College you will be offered a comprehensive package to ensure that your university application is competitive and stands out when compared to that of other applicants. This includes super-curricular and enrichment opportunities, dedicated Oxbridge events, pre-interview test and application support, one-to-one mentoring, and mock interviews delivered by subject specialists. (Oxbridge support events can be signed up to in addition to other Academies.)

We are very proud to see 14 of our students receive offers from Oxbridge this year. The 14 represent a quarter of all the College’s Oxbridge applicants gaining a place to study at either prestigious university, far exceeding the national average of 1 in 6 applicants.
