Oxford comes to the ECP
ECP graduate, Greg Buczkó, came back into school recently to take part in an informal briefing session for current students who are interested in applying to Oxford and Cambridge universities this autumn. Greg graduated in 2017 and has completed his first year at Oxford where he is studying Economics & Management.
Joining Greg was Mark Revan Rangotis who is just about to start his degree course in Biomedical Sciences, also at Oxford. He was pleased that Greg will be on hand to offer him friendly advice and support when he arrives in the city of dreaming spires!
Greg and Mark were keen to encourage this year’s aspiring Oxbridge candidates to apply for the world’s number 1 university. They talked enthusiastically about studying at Oxford. Although students there undoubtedly have to work hard, they also make sure that they play hard as well. What all students at Oxford or Cambridge have in common is a passion for their subject. They are determined to make the most of the amazing opportunity they have earned.
ECP prides itself on its ability to support and nurture students who aspire to study at Oxford or Cambridge. The school provides advice on how to apply and what to expect when they go for interview. We also organise annual work experience placements with top companies and organisations in both Prague and London. These include Deloitte, Chatham House, the Institute of Linguistics and the Independent newspaper. This provides valuable experience that can give candidates the edge when it comes to successfully securing the offer of an Oxbridge place. ECP’s record is impressive. Ten students were offered places at Oxford or Cambridge in the past five years.
Greg and Mark were really impressed with the transformation of the refectory into a relaxing, stylish, dining area, with a café-like atmosphere. This is just one of several improvements to the appearance of the College that took place over the summer holidays.
