University Advice Service

UK and international university advice

Our Universities Advice Service is designed to help Wolsey Hall Oxford students make the right choices as they move on to the next stage of their education.

Top Universities worldwide welcome homeschooled students. Here are a selection of links to just a few of those Universities who actively encourage applications from homeschoolers – University of OxfordUniversity of CambridgeYale University, MIT – Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Auckland.  Other universities worldwide encourage homeschoolers to apply also.

It is important students start thinking about their University options at an early stage. We would recommend the process should begin by the end of your first year of A levels at the latest. For many Universities, particularly those in the United States, the application process is complex and time will be required in order to make a strong application by the deadline for submissions.

We offer University advice for students looking to apply to a UK University and for those applying to International Universities.

Please note that the University Advice Service is only available to students enrolled with Wolsey Hall, or as part of our ongoing Admissions process.

Wolsey Hall wall of fame of past students

We are very proud of our past students and have created a Wall of Fame page that celebrates their progress to a wide range of top Universities both in the UK and overseas.

UK University advice

UK University Advice Service

Our UK University advice service is provided by Sarah Wilson.

For those applying to UK Universities, the process is somewhat streamlined in that you will only have to complete one UCAS form which will require one student personal statement and one reference.

Sarah can give advice on everything from choosing the right A levels to how to complete your UCAS form and make the most of your personal statement.

International University Advice Service

Our International Advice service is provided by Sarah Wilson.

Unlike the UK system, where there is one form used to apply to all UK Universities, for international Universities, each University will have their own separate form and application process. Sarah will be able to help you find your way through the complexities of the different systems in order to make the best possible applications to your chosen Universities.

Creating a list of Universities

I’ve done it, I’ve gotten in to university, and Edinburgh University, no less! Thank you so very much for your help in preparing my application. I really and truly could not have done this without you, and I wanted to let you know that all your work to help me has borne university-shaped fruit. I am extremely excited, and VERY busy getting ready as I move very soon. Thank you! Joel Roderick helped Annelise with her application to Edinburgh University.

Thank you so much for your help with James’ application. He has an unconditional offer to do Computer Science at Kings College London which I think is our first choice, and other offers. All the best at what must be a challenging and hectic time.
