Access to top UK universities

We at Insight Education are working with Oxbridge Tutorial College (OTC) to improve access for Nigeria to the UK’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Alongside improving A-Level grades by working with students at OTC, we are also offering parents at its feeder schools in Lagos help with improving students’ IGCSE grades. By doing so, we aim to help students achieve the best position to unlock the doors to top UK universities.

Our Oxbridge Mentoring Scheme broadens and deepens students’ subject knowledge beyond the A-level curriculum, teaches critical thinking skills and helps them write the highest calibre UCAS personal statements. It also provides frameworks for tackling Oxbridge-style questions so students can gain the confidence to face any interview scenario.

Of the OMS students who were called for Oxbridge interviews between 2006 and 2014, approximately 52% secured offers, far higher than the average Oxbridge application success rate of approximately 20% (2014 Oxford and Cambridge application statistics). Those students that don’t get called to interviews at Oxford or Cambridge go on to secure places at other top UK universities such as the London School of Economics, King’s College and Imperial College by virtue of the standards of their UCAS personal statements.

For a taste of university level tutoring, parents can send their children to the Oxbridge Summer School (3-8 August at OTC). Graduates from Oxford and Cambridge universities will cover a range of topics to inspire student learning in a fun environment, help them bridge the study skills gap between A-level and university courses and provide OMS activities such as UCAS brainstorming and mock academic interviews.

For updates, follow this weekly blog on the Oxbridge Summer School. Please also visit OTC’s webpage for further background on the Oxbridge Summer School and also to register your child. Spaces are limited so register your child ASAP to secure a place. If you have any questions, you can also email us at
