Oxford International College is one of the UK’s leading co-educational A-level boarding colleges for students aged 16 – 21, with academic achievement and personal growth at the heart of what we aim to achieve.

Students are offered a wide spectrum of experiences and programmes to enrich their academic studies and to prepare them for entry to top universities.

2. Ensuring students are successful in their search for work placements and assisting them with this process, including the writing of their CVs, applications forms, making calls, pursuing opportunities.

3. Working as a key member of the Super Curricular team to ensure that each student has ample opportunity for growth and development in addition to those that are offered through the A-level course.

4. Forming part of the personal statement team that supports the students throughout their university application.
