Mentorship Program for Prospective Students

Another layer of the scholarship and access program is the more detailed mentorship program. It involves supporting prospective applicants by attaching them to Oxford-affiliated mentors to boost their chances of gaining admissions to the University. In this process, each student undergoes a two-month mentorship where the mentor, usually an Oxford student or alumni, advises the assigned student and prepares them for admissions to top-tier universities like Oxford. The deadline for applying for the mentorship program is in mid-October of every year.


The mentorship activities include:

·    Guidance on CV writing,

·    Tips for personal statement writing,

·    Advice on research proposals and information on meeting potential supervisors,

·    Provision of indicative feedback on the entire application.


Our experience shows that this mentorship is essential for prospective students and new arrivals at Oxford. More ambitious students can partner with their mentors or other students to write papers and publish in high-impact journals to boost their research and analytical knowledge, placing them in an excellent position to excel at Oxford. The skills and knowledge transferred by the mentor to the mentees will come in handy when undergoing the academic rigors of Oxford University and will potentially give our mentees a level playing field to succeed in their programs. 

What the Scheme does NOT offer: The mentorship program excludes the following;

·    Filling out an application form

·    Writing essays

·    Payment of application fees

·    Funding

·    Guarantee of an offer of a place

·    Binding feedback on your application


We encourage you to apply to the University of Oxford. If you are interested in this program, do not hesitate to contact us at
