Oxford & Cambridge Mock Interview Course, Geneva
Lay the foundation for an Oxbridge interview which demonstrates your ambition and excellence at this year’s Mock Interview Course.
The Oxbridge Mock Interview Course returns this November to provide expert support to students who have applied to Oxford or Cambridge and whom are scheduled to attend an interview as part of their application process.
The Elite IB Oxbridge Mock Interview Course consists of a morning of interview training workshops followed by individually tailored mock interviews taking place that afternoon.
Applicants join our Consulting team in the morning for a series of academic seminars and workshops, where students discuss and dive into interview technique, interview questions, and the panel of interviewers students should expect to encounter. This workshop environment encourages students to engage with other applicants and to share technique and insight into the interview process.
In the afternoon students sit down to three mock interviews. Students will take the roles of both interviewees and interviewers for a deep understanding of the interview process as well as get the chance to be interviewed by one of EIB's experienced Oxbridge Mentors whom will focus the interview on course-specific content in a similar style to that which can be expected at interview. After each interview, applicants receive feedback and recommendations of how to continue to prepare ahead of the big day. Students will be asked prior to the Course to submit their Personal Statement and a CV or any other written work they may have submitted. This can be an Extended Essay or any other piece of work written in the field of study of their interest. This information will be used by the EIB consultants to ensure that the Mock Interviews are as tailormade as possible.

Elite IB are proud to bring our outstanding quality of support to so many students every year. Yet, whilst private tuition is one of the best ways to ensure students reach their potential, it remains out of reach for students from a range of backgrounds. Our dedication to ensuring every student has access to the best quality of education is why we offer fulland part-scholarships to students to attend our courses. Elite IB’s Young Achiever Scholarships are open to students who demonstrate outstanding academic merit; who attend a non fee-paying school, or a fee-paying institution with financial aid; and who demonstrate a real financial need. The Young Achiever Scholarships are awarded on the basis of these criteria and on information contained in each student’s application form. If you want to find out more about the Young Achiever Scholarships, as well as information about how to apply, you can email the Elite IB team at email@example.com.
