 An Oxford undergraduate celebrates the end of her second-year exams

An Oxford undergraduate celebrates the end of her second-year exams


It all started when...

Two sisters, one a Cambridge and one an Oxford graduate, created u2 with the idea of creating a bespoke, female-led service, whereby each student is paired with a primary academic mentor from either Oxford or Cambridge, to fast-track their academic progress. u2 has a team of over 300 Oxbridge graduates, with specialisms in 80 different subjects between them, from Maths and English to Computational Biology, Robotics, Medieval languages and Experimental Psychology. Through u2, students are provided an unparalleled learning opportunity, paired with subject experts, to school their intelligence beyond traditional realms of learning and prepare for the rigours of entrance examinations in an increasingly competitive educational landscape.

u2's mentoring system is truly unique - once paired with a student, each mentor works with our team to curate a program geared towards their goals. The mentor's role goes further than typical 1-1 tuition - they offer subject-specific and admissions guidance, suggest additional mentors with particular expertise in other areas for subsidiary lessons and provide regular feedback, ensuring each student reaches their full academic potential. 

u2's programs and masterclasses cover all aspects of a student's education, be it general aptitude tuition, our Scholarship program for 11+ and 13+, or Oxbridge entrance programs. Our Extra-curricular Concierge allows students to access additional opportunities, from Work Experience and language masterclasses in over 8 languages including Arabic and Mandarin, to individual coding coaching with Oxbridge Computer Scientists able to guide a student through the digital world, fine artists, drama tutors and sports coaches who have performed at both National and International levels.

We combine face-to-face and online tuition to allow students to access the highest quality learning experiences, from all over the globe. On a u2 program, each student can access subject advice and expertise from the team of Oxbridge-educated mentors, at the click of a button. Our mission is to give our students an educational advantage so they can thrive in the fast-moving world we live in today.
