Oxford Tutorial College deservedly enjoys an excellent reputation among educational institutions specializing in preparing students for British universities. The private college Sixth Form was created by the Oxford Educational Foundation in 1988: its founders were five honorary trustees, including the director of the college. In 2010, the college passed under the management of the company ISIS Group, funded from the charitable foundation of Prince Charles, including - it allowed to open on campus effective summer and winter language schools, to conduct seasonal tours and combined programs.

Oxford Tutorial College accepts children from 15 to 18 years of age: the total number of students today reaches about 200 people, boys and girls are approximately equal (most of the students have already reached adulthood and study on programs for high school students). The first week in the college is dedicated to the adaptation of foreign students: they get acquainted with British cultural and national characteristics, learn the rules of safety and behavior, learn on the campus and in the house chosen for living, walk around Oxford.

In 2013, Oxford Tutorial College was ranked 30th among private schools in the country according to the results of final exams - for this young institution it is more than an impressive success. Accredited by the British Council, repeatedly received high marks from profile independent organizations for effective preparation before the university. The total number of graduates today already exceeds 30 thousand people - they continued their education in such prestigious universities as:

  • University College London
  • Cambridge
  • Edinburgh
  • Durham
  • Oxford
  • St Andrews and others .

Another valuable feature of the college is the opportunity to choose the most optimal educational form for each student:

  • 6 classroom lessons per subject weekly;
  • Weekly - 4 lessons in mini-groups for 7 people and 1 individual lesson;
  • 3 individual lessons per week for the chosen subject.

Many college teachers are graduates of Oxford: working in small classroom and giving each student personal attention, they are able to achieve really impressive results in teaching.

About 35% of Oxford Tutorial College students are foreign students: most are from Europe, the US, Russia, Thailand and China. Parents every trimester (at least once) receive a full-fledged school report: on the progress and behavior, successes and difficulties of the child, the recommendations of teachers and educators. If desired, parents or guardians can order controlled studying: once a week the student will perform homework under the supervision of a qualified teacher. This helps to fill the gaps in knowledge, to raise learning, to learn to concentrate and work more efficiently and carefully.

Each student at Oxford Tutorial College is given an individual approach and personal attention: for this purpose, a personal mentor is assigned. It is the mentor that first of all helps students to solve any problems (for household issues it is better to contact a special security officer available throughout the working day). If necessary, an independent consultant is invited for a confidential meeting with the student, his parents or guardian. Together with the tutor every week the student conducts individual lessons: learns to write and critically analyze essays, to discuss novel or philosophical treatise, to analyze ideas of fiction, etc. Such a technique is successfully used in Oxford University, so this preparation for students will be very useful.

Oxford Tutorial College works with professional medics on a partnership agreement: each incoming student must register with a British doctor, have a medical card with vaccinations, allergies and contraindications (it is recommended to register not only with the therapist, but also with an ophthalmologist and dentist). Usually, medical services for students are free of charge (they go through insurance, including hospitalization, intensive care and return to their homeland).
