Why Study Physics With Us?

Students who are interested in understanding the world around themfrom the largest galaxies to the smallest of subatomic particlesshould join us for our Physics course this summer.

Our group project will stretch students far beyond the curriculum as they research and analyse a range of topics, from the subatomic to the cosmological. The students will improve their quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills as they explore a variety of fascinating subjects in our small group seminars and develop confidence in their interview technique as they debate with our academics in their one-to-one tutorials.

Application Guidance

We appreciate that there are a number of ways students may want to study Physics at University and our expert team is ready to help.  We work directly with individual students to answer any concerns and questions they may have about choosing the course and University that is right for them.

Our carefully designed programme works through every element of an application, from personal statements to through to Aptitude tests (PAT and NSAA) and interviews. All students also benefit from a one-to-one Admissions Clinic, where they can work through their concerns and questions with a dedicated advisor.

Our staff have years of experience in helping students access the UK’s top Universities and are all exclusively from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. As well as our expert tutors, we also have a Personal Statements and UCAS Expert on our team who has designed a workshop which provides exclusive insider guidance on how to approach an application.

Additional Support

Included in our course fees are a range of sessions designed to help students prepare for their application to study Physics at a top UK University. We cover the entire admissions process, from writing personal statements, to strategies for approaching Admissions Tests and preparing for interviews.

Students who are applying this year may opt for additional personalised specialist support. These optional extras would begin during the Summer School and continue afterwards, to help students prepare for their upcoming application.

Personal Statement Consultation

The Personal Statement is a key part of any university application and a student’s opportunity to demonstrate their passion for their subject. We understand a Personal Statement is a long-term project and we have designed a 4-hour package which guides and supports students through the writing process.

During the Summer School, students will have an initial 1-hour consultation with a Subject Specialist to set out a plan on how to develop and strengthen their Personal Statement over the coming months. Students will also receive advice and guidance from a Personal Statements Expert experienced in competitive university admissions.

Students will meet twice more with both the Subject Specialist and the Personal Statements Expert before the UCAS deadline, once they have had a chance to develop and improve their Personal Statement. This ensures that by the time our students submit their application, they are confident they have presented themselves as strongly as possible.

Admissions Tests

We have designed and produced both an NSAA paper (for Cambridge) and a PAT paper (for Oxford), and students may purchase a test package alongside the Summer School at a reduced rate. The test paper exactly replicates the style of the original paper, and the package comes complete with a mark scheme, full solutions and a question-by-question video walk-through. These tests cannot be found elsewhere online and are entirely unique, therefore fully replicating the Admissions Test experience for the student.

Mock Interviews

Students can also add a Mock Interview to their Summer School course. Interviews are one of the most important parts of an application and for students making an application this year, a baseline interview in the summer is an excellent way to prepare. A baseline interview allows students to work on their development points throughout the autumn and perhaps undertake additional Mock Interviews closer to the time to hone their skills.

Our Mock Interviews are conducted by our specialist tutors with Oxford and Cambridge interview experience. They last 45 minutes: 30 minutes for the interview, followed by 15 minutes of verbal feedback, discussing how the interview went and points for improvement. Students will also receive a detailed written report, which explains the content of the interview, assesses the student’s critical thinking and analytic skills, gives notes on their interview style and explains how they can improve next time.
