We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to better themselves by gaining real-world, job-ready qualifications.
Whether it’s getting that promotion at work, setting up the business you’ve been dreaming of for years, or making the career change you know could be the missing piece in the puzzle of your happiness – we believe that no dream should be off-limits and that everyone should have access to the right tools to push the boundaries of their own potential.
The Oxbridge Mission
To be the industry-leading online college.
We are in the grips of a learning crisis where 60% of people globally fail to achieve minimum education standards. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, global education was no longer fit for the 21st century. Current FE provision is slow and incompatible with modern life.
Oxbridge must be the beacon of quality, convenience, and results. Size doesn’t matter, but we must have the best results, reviews and quality.
By disrupting the learning industry, using clever technology and deep learner understanding to redefine how learning is resourced, consumed, and delivered.
The growth mindset
This is the way we think about ourselves and our own ability to learn, develop, and grow. If you have a growth mindset, you know that through dedication and hard work, anything is possible.
You realise that learning doesn’t stop the moment you leave school – it’s a lifelong process that can boost personal development in all areas of life. We know that setbacks are an opportunity to learn lessons, take stock, and do better next time.
This view of life creates a love of learning and resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.
Working hand in hand with our students. We want to work with people who are in the growth mindset, irrespective of background, circumstance, or ability. All we ask is that you are the kind of person who wants to be better, and is willing to put in the work to get there.
Core beliefs and great culture
Our founding principles encompass lifelong learning, integrity and ‘owning it’, amongst others. We believe in being a morally decent bunch of people who have a passion for helping others. Read more about our core beliefs here.
Our long-term goals
We celebrate how incredibly successful our friends at the Open University have been (now the largest university in the UK) at disrupting the higher education sector. We believe that further education (levels 1-5; college level) needs and deserves the same boost to bring it in to the 21st century.
Make online further education the norm
Our online qualifications are identical to those offered by traditional schools and colleges – but our pass rates are higher! That’s because we know that quality online learning boosts information retention by up to 60% whilst reducing study time by up to 40%, giving our students the very best chances of success. We’re leading the charge to make online courses mainstream, and to ensure that everyone has access to a high-quality education.
Building schools where there are none We know that education is a powerful agent of social change, and are hoping to one day be successful enough to build and fund schools in developing countries. Our aim is to give as many people as possible the gift of learning.
We are socially responsible because we love it
We do nice things, even when nobody’s looking.
Deeply embedded in our culture is our willingness to give back. We’re helping to fund charitable learning and educational-based projects, both in our local community and worldwide.
We see our social responsibility as our secondary purpose and strongly believe that we have a responsibly to support our local community, wider society, and those further afield.
The Oxbridge team
Our passionate and engaged team is the secret to our success. We’re fanatical about helping others achieve more. Every member of the team is hand-selected for their high performance and thirst for better. We champion potential, breakdown barriers, and build confidence. If our students succeed, then so will we.
We’re positive, determined, transparent, and curious. What’s more, our motto of lifelong learning doesn’t just apply to our students; every day we commit ourselves discovering more, knowing more, and being more. Together, we’re determined to build a better tomorrow.
We’re here to energise the online learning sector, and if you fancy coming along for the ride, then you’re in the right place. We don’t do boring, we don’t do complicated, and we don’t do mediocre. Our students flourish because we empower them to learn without limits, and we’re a dedicated community of people who support and uplift one another whilst working together to achieve that goal.
At heart, we’re just a bunch of real people who want to help others. We say yes when we can, and we do whatever we can to help you achieve better.
Our tutorial team consists of over 100 highly qualified and caring team members who are all experts in their field. They are key to our mission, and are at the heart of everything we do. You’ll often hear our students say their tutor has gone above and beyond to help them, and that’s because they’re driven by the passion to see their students achieve their goals.
“Over time, Sarah and I became friends – we’d often have threads of emails discussing holidays, children, half-term plans, and all manner of other topics! The support and guidance I received every step of the way has been truly excellent.”
Globally, we are in the grips of a learning crisis where 60% of people fail to achieve minimum education standards. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, global education was no longer fit for the 21st century.
We set out to fix this.
The Oxbridge story began in Birmingham, UK in 2015 when our founder, Matt Jones, who had been active in the learning industry for many years, had the vision to create a modern learning experience that would enhance the lives of many. To deliver human, ultra-personalised learning journeys online that could be enjoyed “anytime, anywhere and anyhow”.
We understand that every student is different and that education needs to be diverse and engaging to help every learner achieve their full potential, and that their learning journey should be personalised to them.
Now, Oxbridge is one of the most successful and awarded online colleges, and we’re on a mission to help as many people worldwide as we can with our innovative process.
Our founding principles encompass lifelong learning, integrity and ‘owning it’, among others. We believe in being a morally decent bunch of people who have a passion for helping others.
