Love my couse, super tutor.
trustpilot rating
Started my course about 8 weeks ago. The joining was very straightforward and quick to get started. I paid on a Friday and was up qnd running by Sunday. I am absolutely loving the course (history A level). The tutor has been super. Gets back to all my queries really quickly, she is really positive and supportive and making sure I'm staying on track. I think it can be easy to skip.things or over delve where not necessary so I contact her quite a bit and I can't fault her supportiveness. I really wanted to go to a college but needed flexibility and I'm enjoying and learning so much on this course. Would definitely recommend. Though don't bother with student card. I looked into it and doesn't seem all that good

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!

The best course provider!!

The best course provider!!! I have completed my childcare level 3 in early years course with Oxbridge. I had a terrible experience and was left in a mess with another course provider. When I joined with Oxbridge I was reassured by all the lovely tutors I was in contact with. The course went smoothly and I enjoyed doing my work because I felt I was learning something this time round. Thank you to Lisa and Faye who have been so supportive and the best tutors. I would recommend Oxbridge to everyone and I cannot wait to start another course 😊

Thank you Oxbridge!

I have just completed the CACHE Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning Level 3 and I am so pleased I chose Oxbridge for this journey. They have been competent from the start and have a very slick process in place in terms of communication with students. The tutor assigned to me was Matthew England and he has been fantastic throughout the course. Assignments were critiqued fairly and any feedback was constructive and helpful. Matthew always responded to questions asked or assignments submitted in a timely manner which was welcomed. I would certainly recommend Oxbridge to anyone looking to learn remotely as they provide a great support structure and you don't feel alone in your studies. I hope to use them again in the future as I venture into my new career as a Teaching Assistant.

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?

Very impressed
trustpilot rating
I called Oxbridge after perusing their website and spoke with a very polite career advisor. My questions were answered knowledgably and I was supported and guided to a qualification that best suited my long-term goals. When the course arrived I was very impressed and I loved that it was also on-line because I have a young child who needs my attention often. I loved that I was able to work at my own pace, with no pressure. I loved that you can genuinely complete the modules as fast or as slow as needed and I felt as though I learned a broad spectrum of content. Oxbridge offered me fantastic supportive teachers, I have only positive things to say. I highly recommend this college to others.

I started my course recently and I have to say that I am over the moon with the support and customer service that I have received so far! I choose Oxbridge as I really wanted to get back into education but as I have a 4 year old I knew a full time course down the traditional route just wasn’t going to be possible for me. From my initial enquiry, to my enrolment and support from my tutor i have always received 5 star service! I couldn’t be more happier and would definatly recommend them!
