Once you’ve secured this and spent some time in the industry, you’ll likely want to specialise in a specific area that may require additional study. As there are so many pathways you can take, you can build a unique career by investing in specific courses.

Absoutely outstanding college
trustpilot rating
Absoutely outstanding college! Always knew what to do even in times when everyone was so unsure. I am very grateful. I enrolled onto 5 GCSE's , I got my results through my tutors and i was over the moon with them. I have just re-enrolled onto 3 a-levels so i can persue my ambition to be a bio-medical scientist. Once again i was talked through every details of all 3 a-levels, loads of information given about how to and where to book exams and costs. This was even offered to be split payments for me too , and this is something i went with as i wont notice the fees so much monthly. Yes, i could have gone to college but college doesnt suit my needs at the moment. My tutor support on my GCSES was AMAZING, never left waiting for long for questions or for marking. Even when my tutor/s were on holiday there was someone there to cover and there is no half terms or 6 weeks summer holidays that you have to plan for. I had quite a few phone calls, mainly just to get clarity on a few units, and i had a few zoom calls which were great - so easy. Thank you Oxbridge and specifically my tutors, James, Ollie, Sarah and May. I hope to get you at a-level if possible. And thank you to my advisor for helping me out in every aspect. Love you guys.

Absolutely amazing centre and brilliant Tutor
trustpilot rating
Firstly, I would like to revisit the following paragraph in my review that I left on feefo “My tutor is also absolutely fantastic. Response times (marking, feedback and general communication) are brilliant. His subject knowledge is fantastic and his advice is so so helpful. I received a very nice welcome email from him which again was a really nice personable touch. Oxbridge really do take the "distance" out of distance learning." To echo this statement, Oxbridge have truly struck gold with Mr. Steven Cook. Working with Steven and learning from him has been a truly wonderful and priceless experience. His commitment, dedication, knowledge and resourcefulness are evident in his feedback, advice, guidance and his overall approach to teaching, learning and development. Steven has given me lots of advice throughout my programme and always answers my questions in full. Exchanging emails with Steven is always pleasant and he always manages to add a very personal and professional touch to his messages. Stevens feedback is development, motivational, critical and positive. The technique he uses to provide feedback is amazing because he manages to highlight areas that you have done very well and areas that you need to improve on in a way that motivates you to improve and gives you the confidence to press ahead with creative ideas. A craft which is not easy to obtain. Time and time again, Steven has given me both academic and industry related advice with regards to Assessing and the Education sector. I have worked with tutors in the past who don’t achieve this balance which Steven has harmonised so brilliantly. I would like to thank Steven for teaching me and guiding me through this programme. I am also extremely grateful that he is my tutor for the AET as well.

Jenny, an amazing counselling tutor.

I have just completed my level two counselling qualification. My tutor, Jenny Preston. Has been an amazing tutor, and I couldn't of asked for more support if I tried too, she was on hand around the clock whenever you needed her. She's an asset to Oxbridge Home Learning, and her advice and support is everything you could ever of asked for in a tutor. Jenny has a heart of gold, and is very sociable and this pushed my motivation forward. Jenny has been fantastic, and has made my experience of Oxbridge very bright. Thank you for everything from myself, and your other students!

Entire Process Review - from sign up to certification!
trustpilot rating
I have waited till I received my certificate to finally review my experience of Oxbridge. I studied the Level 4 in Counselling Skills which had it's name changed to just Advanced Counselling Skills mid way. To me this should have been communicated out to me and anyone else studying as a matter of principle because it did initially cause me some confusion despite me being reassured that it is a Level 4 still. There are mainly positives here though. Dr Sandie Bowman was fantastic as a tutor, fair, challenging and supportive. The sign up process was easy too and the content useful and interesting although there are some grammar errors. There are some elements of it that were harder than others - for me, recording myself doing a mock session with a "willing" volunteer was challenging but overall rewarding. The word counts are deliberately challenging too and get you to squeeze as much information out into succinct paragraphs as possible. I was allowed to make my own points and have my own evidenced based opinions that also challenge some of the notions of counselling too. This was particularly refreshing. Being that it is a NCFE customised qualification - you can expect a somewhat steep learning curve, but ultimately achievable and affordable certificate. Despite some small issues with the name change - my emails were responded to promptly and I confirm they are a legit organisation of a high quality. With this in mind, I have given them 5 stars although I would say it would be 4.5 out of 5 if the option existed. I would happily study with them again and look forward to doing so at some point. Thank you to everyone at Oxbridge including Jake and Dr Sandy Bowman. Josh

Highly recommend study with Oxbridge
trustpilot rating
My experience of completing CBT Level 3 through distance learning with Oxbridge was seamless. Training material, eportfolio and tutor support was spot on. I had two tutors during my qualification, both of which were very motivating and reponded quickly with helpful suggestions. I would highly recomend. Thank you.

New to learning on line.
trustpilot rating
I'm completely new to 'learning' on line. In fact the last time I did any formal work regarding eduction was back in 1962!! Having decided that my brain needed to be kept busy I decided to do an English course with Oxbridge after researching several such colleges. I am not disappointed. They helped tremendously in setting it up via the computer and have shown patience when I needed help regarding this (to me) new form of teaching. My tutor is excellent and is instructing me in modern techniques and language construction that has changed over the years. I feel quite confident I shall do well and that confidence springs from the help I have received from the college.
