Our Oxbridge Support Programme, comprised of many specialist professionals, is overseen by Tom Featherstone, a former QMC and Oxford University student (Philosophy, Politics and Economics). Tom is passionate about passing on the outstanding application support he received from QMC to future generations.
Education for High Achievers is a key priority for QMC, reflected by the leading role we play in national and county initiatives. We have a fine and long-standing tradition of supporting high achieving students by providing challenging and stretching opportunities for students who are academically gifted, or talented in another area such as sports or the arts.
QMC students who apply to Oxbridge are offered places in subjects as diverse as Veterinary Medicine, Music, Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
We also provide additional support for students who are talented in other areas, for example play for national sports teams, win prestigious art and media awards, dance and act in national productions or play in highly respected orchestras. Wherever your area of talent lies, we are here to support you to help you achieve your potential and reach your goals.
