Oxbridge Interviews

Your interview for a place at Oxford, Cambridge or another elite university, might be the biggest challenge you’ve ever encountered.

The mythology surrounding the interviews, plus the pressure to perform in an unfamiliar environment, can rattle even the most confident of candidates.

To do yourself justice, you will be confident of communicating your characteristics and strengths in a way which relates to what the interviewer is looking for.

Impetus Coaching can help you:

  • experience interview questions under pressure
  • receive constructive and supportive feedback
  • understand what the interviewer is looking for
  • assess current strengths and identify unique characteristics
  • practice communicating in a way that feel right
  • learn how to think and perform confidently under pressure
  • develop tactics for answering challenging questions
  • create a plan for continuous development

Impetus Coaching provides small group workshops and one-to-one coaching sessions for students preparing for an Oxbridge or other competitive interview.

We have a 100% rebooking rate from our client schools across the UK. Find out why.
