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

Oxbridge Sets New Industry Standards
trustpilot rating
I was browsing online courses for A-Level French to complement my Degree in Business & German to progress with my PGCE in 2023 to teach Secondary School Modern Languages. When I came across Oxbridge I was impressed with the Website and course offerings. Ellie, one of the Learning Advisors reached out to me after I had completed my research to ask if I had found what I was looking for and if she could assist any further. I was delighted that Ellie had been pro-active and considerate about this as I was in a bit of a muddle which courses to take and with which establishment. Ellie exceeded all expectations in her knowledge, guidance and advice on my personal educational requirements. It was an absolute delight and a pleasure to have Ellie work with me over the past week to tailor and establish a sound path for me to embark on. Ellie demonstrated outstanding communication, organisational and listening skills with a warmth and friendliness, setting new standards in caring for and counselling new students in to Oxbridge. As a result of Ellie’s exemplary personality and rapport, combined with the aforementioned qualities, I’m delighted to be enrolled for the Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training with A-Level French. Ellie is an absolute asset to Oxbridge! Works hard on the frontline with passion, precision and dedication. I can only foresee Ellie progress very quickly through her career aspirations and wish Ellie the very best. Well done Ellie! Thank you for all your help. Hat off and take a bow!

I thoroughly recommend the Level 3 Life Coaching course I undertook! The course is sufficiently stimulating and covers all the foundations of life coaching to feel confident going into it as a new starter or for a career change. My tutor Kelly Pearson was very detailed with her feedback and always on-hand to encourage, support and answer any questions. It's clear that she's very passionate about what she does and brings a wealth of experience - thank you so much again for all your help :)
