I've been doing this course for 5 months and I can honestly say that it hasn't been easy, as I haven't studied for many years but the support I get from my tutor Donna has been second to none.Rather than just tell me what I get wrong she gives real help to guide me to the correct answer. It's as good as having a tutor for real. If you're hesitating at the cost, don't you will not regret it.

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.

With so much conflicting information about home learning it was wonderful to have some clear help and advise from Lilly I am now on the right course for me. Lilly went out of her way and was (and still is as I’ve had a wobble) kind, patience and offered lots of reassurance. Looking forward to seeing how the course progresses Thank you Lilly and Oxbridge :)

trustpilot rating
I wholeheartedly love this college and everyone involved :). Travis has been an absolute champ, skilfully guiding me through the application process; Carys has been patiently replying to my exhaustive questions concerning the A-Level Business. Verity always goes above and beyond with her prompt responses to my conundrums. They are not "basic" in their answers; their passion for learning and assisting is apparent, and therefore, I couldn't recommend Oxbridge enough. M

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.

I enrolled with Oxbridge about 10…
trustpilot rating
I enrolled with Oxbridge about 10 months ago and the whole experience from start to finish has been wonderful. My tutor has been so supportive, throughout and anything that I have needed help with has been responded to is such a quick timeframe. Like most people I suppose, I have had some issues with home-schooling, the children in general, working from home and adjusting to the new normal, but Oxbridge have supported me throughout. I know that if I had of gone to college I would not be in the position I am now, don’t get me wrong, you do have to be motivated, but being able to study at your own speed has been amazing. I think I was one of the first to try out the new learning portal, which was easy to navigate and easy to submit my work to. The feedback has always been excellent and encouraging. I am delighted to be able to say I have been able to secure a promotion thanks to the qualification and I think in this uncertain time that’s amazing. The student support team have always been great, and sympathetic to my needs. I have today re-enrolled onto the next level with Kelly, who was absolutely amazing, her knowledge was phenomenal and she really understood my career path and goals so thank you Kelly, I very much appreciate it. She also enrolled me on to some free short courses, they may prove useful in the future if I apply for other roles. Looking forward to getting started (again) and moving onto the next chapter of my learning.
