I just received an Engineering offer from Brasenose College, Oxford! A*AA in Maths, Physics and Further Maths. I’m so excited. I’d like to thank you and the tutors – really want to share this news with them and thank them so much for their help!

University and Careers Destinations

Looking ahead is a key component of the OIC curriculum, and we are delighted to see that our Career Pathway yields stunning results year after year. Over her almost 20-year career, our Chief Education Officer Yasmin Sarwar has had 100% of her students offered places in Russell Group Universities. 

OIC students go on to study competitive courses at the world’s top universities, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, University College London, or London School of Economics (also known as the G5). We also send our students to universities around the world, including the US, Australia, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Japan.

While we loudly applaud and celebrate our students receiving offers from the top universities, we place higher importance on the fact that through careful and expert guidance and support, all of our students are able to attend the university that best fits their individual goal.




In 2020, we helped our 70 students apply for 79 different degrees at 44 universities around the world.

  • 58.6% of our leavers will go to Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, LSE, and Imperial

  • 1 in 3 Oxbridge applicants got an offer

    • 1 in 2 got into Oxford (compared to 1 in 4 nationwide)

    • 1 in 3 got into Cambridge (compared to 1 in 4 nationwide)


Offers our students received included:

  • Medicine
  • Engineering
  • Law
  • Economics


  • Anthropology and Archaeology
  • Aviation with Pilot Studies
  • Chemistry with a European Language


We have also had high success rates at other prestigious universities.

  • 85.7% success rate for non-medicine subjects at University College London 

Compared to 7% overall rate nationwide

  • 54.5% success rate for non-medicine subjects at Imperial College London

Compared to 14.3% overall rate nationwide

  • 55.6% success rate for all subjects at London School of Economics

Compared to 7% overall rate nationwide

Medicine admissions

By July 2020, our students received 63 offers to study medicine all around the world.

Because of different application cycles this number may yet rise.

At OIC, we pride ourselves on our expert approach to medicine admissions. In 2019, 100% of our applicants were successful in getting into a medical school.

In the academic year 2020/2021, OIC alumni will begin their degrees at 26 medical schools, including Imperial College London, University College London, University of St Andrew’s, or Hong Kong University.

OIC students will also pursue related degrees, such as Veterinary Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Neurology, or Anatomy. 



Overcoming the odds

OIC is attended by many international students. Due to that, our applicants often face an additional hurdle: admissions caps and government quotas on many competitive degrees.

It is almost twice as difficult for an international student to get into Oxbridge as it is for a British student.

In spite of this, OIC continues to defy the trend to consistently send many of our students into top competitive courses:

Moreover, our students most commonly apply for the world’s most competitive courses: Medicine, Mathematics, Economics, Natural Sciences, Law, Engineering, and more. Most of those degrees have less than 10% acceptance rate.

It is testament to our unique strategic methodology that we can achieve those successes despite the unfavourable odds.

Can we help you achieve your university goals?
