I would like to give acknowledgement to Oxbridge
trustpilot rating
I would like to give acknowledgement to Oxbridge and especially to the Tutor Sandie. The knowledge and experience she has was clear to see from the start, her guidance and direction was very inspirational and ensured that I started with a high standard and that standard was maintained. At the conclusion I was much more confident with the knowledge I had gained and also with the direction and guidance I was given. Thank you to Oxbridge and Dr Bowden

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.

This Course has been a life-changer
trustpilot rating
This Course has been a game-changer. After a false start I re-enrolled and have just completed Level 3 Diploma in Creative Writing achieving an average mark of 95%. This was all about learning, rather than simply getting a Certificate, so I tackled it as if it were a Degree. My final assignment turned into a novella, which compared to some of my earlier writings showed just how much my skills, style, and "writers voice" as Dr Roger calls it has grown and matured. Course materials are varied and interesting, and no issues at all with the administrative support provided, and everyone very helpful and efficient. My tutor, Dr. Roger Cottrell has been a brilliant mentor and has given me so much belief and confidence in my ability as a writer. I cannot thank him enough. To the extent that I AM going to write a thriller novel, something previously I would have never thought I could possibly do. Dr. Roger and I just "clicked", and he has had a huge impact in my growth as a writer. You will be very blessed if you enrol and have him as your tutor. I now happily describe myself as an "Aspiring Writer" but will drop the "Aspiring" when I am paid for something I have written ;) . For the moment it is all for the love of it, and the learning, and we never stop learning, do we?

I was so apprehensive when i was looking to do an online course, i decided to try a few companies first and i then came across Oxbridge i spoke with a lovely lady called Hayley, she talked me through all of the course even repeating herself several time so i could fully understand! Hayley explained the out come of my qualification and when i told her i needed this course to be able to attend University she really put my mind at ease.She knew exactly what i needed. I went a few days thinking and contacting other companies but i felt as though Hayley at Oxbridge really really understood and wanted to help she emailed me details over the few days and i just had a feeling this was the company for me. i called the college i spoke with a pleasant lady in student support who put me through to Hayley, Hayley knew exactly what to do and i signed up, i haven't looked back the tutor support has been brilliant. If iv needed to ask advice quickly i have called the college or popped on the online chat and one of the team have answered any query i have had. I can honestly say they have been great and so supportive of my future. I want to thank Oxbridge a great deal for allowing me to succeed in my career . Thank you all at Oxbridge

Incredible customer Service
trustpilot rating
I had a difficult time with the enrollment process (all entirely down to me and issues on my end). However, when I called the team at Oxbridge, I spoke to an individual named Ellie, who is without a shadow of doubt, one of the best customer service people I have ever been served by. I received positive conversation, had my every question dealt with and sorted in a highly professional manner and was smiling throughout. I had to make several calls and each time specifically asked to speak with her. She is a credit to the institution.

My Spanish dream
trustpilot rating
Having lived, studied and worked in Spain I have a good understanding of the Spanish language and I want to obtain the formal qualifications. I applied for university and unfortuently due to having no qualifications in Spainish, my application was declined. I was advised by the university to study an A level online and thanks to Hayley at Oxbridge, I am now enrolled and starting the course! Thank you so much Hayley - You're a dream saver!
