Our team is currently spread across Oxford, Cambridge, and London. You can find out more about each person by hovering/tapping on their image.
The central team leads each part of InsideUni. Central team members are usually more experienced and have responsibility for managing their part of the project based on a strategy set with the CEO and other central team members. They also are involved in setting the direction for InsideUni as a whole on a national level.
Campus content teams are responsible for curating the crowdsourced written guides that appear on the InsideUni website and our crowdsourced database of student application experiences. They also help create our video content, which we have just launched this summer (here are examples of our live student panels). They work closely with the central Head of Content and our wider team of volunteers who help write and edit content.
The outreach team spreads awareness of InsideUni within Cambridge and to prospective applicants. This includes recruiting hundreds of student contributors, nurturing our student communities, and making sure applicants know about our website (via social media, press such as our recent feature in The Guardian, and other outreach projects).
Our tech team is responsible for developing our website and editing platform. The website is coded entirely in-house and this allows us to be flexible and innovative in thinking how we can best help applicants.
We are a non-profit, student-led project to make university applications more accessible for everyone. InsideUni was publicly launched in September 2018 for Cambridge, and following success in the first year, launched to Oxford in October 2019.
By crowdsourcing information from recent or current students, then editing the responses to explain any terminology and remove personal information, we are able to provide unique outlooks that are accessible for school students.
We started with interview experiences - as that's the least well documented part of the Oxford/Cambridge interview process. You find our database of interview experiences from real students available under the 'Interviews' tab at the top of this page.
Next, we moved onto subject guides, and following a big restructuring project, we offer course guides and subject guides, as well as more general resources like our guide for international students. They can all be found under the 'Guides' tab at the top of this page.
In April 2020, we began a series of live online video Q&As with students at both universities. You can all of these on our YouTube channel and we are in the process of uploading them to this website.
You can reach out to the team through our social media (linked at the bottom of the page) or you can email us at [email protected].
We look forward to hearing from you!
