Oxford Royale Academy’s online learning platform – ORA Prep – offers a wide range of exciting and intellectually stimulating online courses, primarily designed to support students applying to university in the UK. Our online courses are instantly accessible from all over the world and provide students with an insight into subjects that takes them far beyond the school curriculum.

This insight allows students to enjoy a taster of what studying a subject at university may be like, while also providing them with invaluable material for applications and interviews. All of which, as our student testimonials show, is invaluable help in an increasingly competitive university applications process.

1. Try out a range of university subjects

Choosing what to study at university is one of the biggest and toughest decisions you’ll ever have to make, affecting what you do for 3+ years of your life (and beyond) and costing a large sum of money.

ORA Prep’s wide range of subject tasters offers students the chance to try out new subjects in an interactive, engaging format, helping you decide whether a subject is – or isn’t – for you.

2. Gain extra knowledge in your chosen subject

Choosing your subject is just the beginning – you’ve then got to succeed in your application in an increasingly competitive applications process. Universities are looking for students who stand out from the crowd and show that they’ve got the passion to study their chosen subject further. Our courses help you do just that.

3. Prepare for the applications process and interviews

Preparation is the name of the game. ORA’s online courses aim to prepare students by giving them a foundation on which to undertake the applications process: whether it’s simply a case of stating what most interests you on your personal statement, or whether you need to discuss key case studies and events in an interview, our courses are designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge they need to impress.

4. Consolidate your knowledge for Oxbridge and other top universities

Many top UK universities, including Oxbridge and London universities, rely on interviews as a key part of their applications process. Interviews scrutinise a student’s ability to discuss their subject and think through problems, and ORA Prep courses are designed to help students do just that.

5. Boost your knowledge for exams and general interest

The aim of our courses goes beyond that of just inspiring or educating our students. Our courses are designed develop students’ skills in note-taking, digesting information, and contextualising new ideas, all of which are critical skills required for university study.
