We have combined some of the UK’s brightest academic minds, with a team of 600+ mentors, all of whom hold an Oxbridge degree. Our team is comprised of current Oxbridge undergraduates, Masters and PhD level graduates, with degrees ranging from Robotics and Chemical Engineering to Political Theory and Cognitive Neuroscience.
A primary academic mentor from Oxford or Cambridge will supervise every aspect of a student’s study, creating a comprehensive programme which will ensure academic goals are reached in their desired subject/s. It’s a fast-track to success. Our mentors are highly experienced with tuition at 7+, 8+, 11+, 13+ (school entrance and general tuition), GCSE, A-Level, IB, Oxbridge and Ivy League preparation.
The strength of u2’s team lies in the network of current undergraduates, recent graduates and Masters or PhD level graduates, who have studied over 90 courses at Oxford and Cambridge.
Our mentors are there to inspire students to pursue and refine their subject interests outside their school curriculum, as well as to demystify the practical aspects of application, from personal statement and admission test guidance, to mock interviews and organisation of work experience.
We don’t offer a short-cut to Oxbridge success, our specialism in extra-curricular learning nurtures a student’s intellectual curiosity, which sets them up for it naturally.
Caroline Herschel, the first paid female scientist and woman appointed to government in the UK, is the figurehead of our new initiative, The Caroline Club, an extra-curricular club for girls (11-18), which aims to inspire the next generation of great female thinkers through courses in Debate, Coding, World Literature, Advanced Science, Maths Challenge and Mandarin.
We aim to encourage an open debate of ideas, drive our students to enquire & create, get more girls into STEM and tech and develop leadership, communication & problem-solving skills. It is free for girls to join, with members receiving educational blogs, essay competitions, news of events & lectures, school & university advice.
