Why study a personal interest course with Oxbridge?

Our entire mission objective is to change the world’s views of education and provide opportunities for everybody to learn regardless of their educational experiences and background.

Yes, education is essential for getting the most out of your career, but it’s also a way to feel more fulfilled in your personal life. For example, a mindfulness course can help you tackle the stresses of work more effectively, but it can also help you stop and better appreciate the things around you.

All of our courses are available through our award-winning learning platform. Industry experts put the content together specifically for us, so even though you’re learning for pleasure, that quality of learning will be extremely high.

This platform and all of your course materials are available 24 hours a day, so you can study when it suits you, just like you should when it comes to personal interest courses.

If you’d like more information about any of our courses or have any questions, please get in touch with one of our learning advisers.

How does studying a personal Interest course online work?

Your free time is precious, and as such, when you opt for a personal interest course, you should leave each study session feeling invigorated. That’s one of the reasons why an online approach complements this so well.

You have complete control over when and for how long you study, making the entire thing more fun rather than a burden to get through.

In addition, with 24-hour access and the ability to schedule one-to-ones with your personal tutor, you get so much more out of an online course compared to more traditional methods of study.

What are personal interest courses?

Personal interest courses are topics you study not necessarily to gain a qualification (although some of these courses are certified) but more to expand your knowledge, challenge yourself and help you take up a new hobby.

If there’s something you’ve always wanted to learn but never felt as though you had the time or even knew where to start, we have a range of interesting courses for you to sink your teeth into.

From genealogy to garden design, these varied courses are tailored to the bold and the curious.

I always knew that a career focused around helping people achieve their goals was perfect for me. That’s why I became a tutor. I love to see my student’s confidence flourish as they progress through their courses. It’s important to help them fit their learning goals around their personal commitments so they have the best chance of success!

My 30-year stride in education started with childminding, to working with pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. I then tutored in a national reading programme and went on to become a Higher-Level TA. I’m elated to say I graduated with a First-Class BA Honours Degree when I was 50 – living proof that it’s never too late to chase your dreams!

Great course provider, amazing tutors

Very pleased with Oxbridge, they are excellent course providers. I have done Level 3 (supporting teaching and learning in schools) few years ago and my tutor at that time was great. I'm currently doing Level 4 (Advanced practitioner in schools and colleges) and again my first tutor Jenny Tidmarsh was great, my current tutor Sarah Connell is brilliant, she is really helping me with my research project, her technique is wonderful going step by step and she is always giving great advice and very supportive feedback :)

Highly recommend for anyone wishing to return to education/A wonderful experience.

I have recently studied 3 A levels with Oxbridge for the June 2022 exam cycle; English literature, history, and sociology. I achieved A*s in English and Sociology and an A in History. The experience was immensely rewarding and I would recommend Oxbridge to anyone considering returning to education. Special thanks to Zara Lampey and Judith Dixon in particular. Both gave me constant support along with advice I will take with me to uni and beyond.

I have been studying with Oxbridge for over 2 years, on 3 different courses. Each time they have been great. My tutors (Had 4 all in all for different courses) have been great, quick to reply and very encouraging and motivational. I have often found it difficult to study continuously as i do not live in the UK full time and i suffer with anxiety and depression and didn't have a traditional secondary schooling. They have always been supportive and made allowances for me whenever required, would always choose Oxbridge and would always recommend them.

Supporting teaching and learning Level 3

I cannot express how pleased I am with Oxbridge Home Learning. I am one of those people who does not like to ask for favours or help unless I really need to. My tutor Kerry Ore is one of those people who will support you from start to finish, and exceptional in reading people. She has been my rock and I appreciate her honesty and because she cares for her students to do the best and pushes them so they achieve their best. This is my first course with Oxbridge, but I can assure you it won't be the last. If I could, I would have given them 10 stars. Thank you for everything, Kerry and Oxbridge people 😊🌟👌 I have received my certificate today (7th September) and it made my day as it made it real that I am now qualified in something I have always wanted to be. It has opened new doors for me and I am so looking forward to open those doors with the help of the Oxbridge. Thank you for everything.

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.
