Our mission is to provide trustworthy application advice that we wish we'd had

Figuring out university applications whilst studying is a pain. It’s unfair that some people have to do this alone, and others have help. That's why we aim to offer concise, reliable information from recent or current students.

Our story

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!
