Oxford & Cambridge Mock Interview Course
Lay the foundation for an Oxbridge interview which demonstrates your ambition and excellence at this year’s Mock Interview Course.
The Oxbridge Mock Interview Course returns to London at the end of November to provide expert support to students who have applied to Oxford or Cambridge and are scheduled to attend an interview as part of their application process.
The Oxford and Cambridge Mock Interview Course runs over a single Saturday at the end of November, in preparation for Oxbridge interviews which typically take place in the first 2 weeks of December.
The morning will consist of seminars led by EIB Admissions Experts, themselves Oxbridge graduates and experienced in supporting students who are applying to prestigious UK universities. Students will learn what to expect from the entire interview process, from accommodation to your interviewing panel, and we will lead discussions on interview technique, and share insights gained during our own interviews, and from speaking with students we have supported subsequently. There will be plenty of opportunities to share ideas and experiences with other Oxbridge candidates on the course, interviewing for a range of subjects, who will all be in a similar situation to you.
After a short lunch break, students will have three interviews with our Oxbridge consultants. Two will be from their field of study, or a related discipline, and the third will be a general, non-academic interview. Each mock interview is individual and will reflect the nature and rigour of the questions candidates can expect in December.
Applicants are encouraged to engage with our team before the day of their mock interviews, sharing their personal statement, examples of their written work, and their academic profile. This means that their consultants will have information similar to that held by Oxbridge, and therefore the interviews can be tailored to each individual’s circumstances and provide the most accurate reflection of what to expect in the real thing.
After the interviews, individual feedback will be provided for you from each consultant, with recommendations on how to continue to prepare ahead of the big day!
