Oxbridge is something I feel very strongly about. For those who don’t know what Oxbridge is, (1) it’s Oxford and Cambridge University. Cunning really, and sounds better than Camford. I’m going to start here by exploding a few myths — the first of which is that these universities are the best in the country.
They aren’t. It all depends on one, which subject you take, and two, (2) what you are looking for in a university. If you want to do medicine, for example, you’d be much better off at Edinburgh: the Cambridge course is incredibly academic and focused on training research doctors rather than practicing ones. And the same is true of other subjects. On the other hand, there are some subjects at which Oxbridge excels: Oxford for English, for example, (3) and Cambridge for history. So the first message is: don’t get caught up in the idea that these universities are superior to every other university academically, (4) because it’s simply not true.
So. If you’ve decided it is for you, what next?
