We are the best in the UK


Oxford International College is an elite A-level college whose commitment to academic excellence, career advice, and personal development have consistently put it at the top.

As of 2019, we are the best-performing college in the country (as elected by The Times School League, Daily Telegraph School League, and the Educational Advisors’ Independent School League Table).

2019 saw our students achieve record A-level results. Overall, 92% of grades received by OIC students in 2019 were A*-A, and 53% were A*, making us the only UK school that achieved above 90% A*-A grades. This is an 8% increase from last year's performance (83.5%).

Almost all of our students (99.34%) received between A* and B.

The Class of 2019 will go on to study at the world's top universities:
  • 100% of students obtained an offer from a Russell Group University
  • 100% of students applying for medicine were successful in obtaining offers and are progressing to top medical schools including Cambridge, Imperial, UCL
  • 60% of the cohort progressing to Cambridge, Imperial, LSE or UCL
  • 25% of our Cambridge applicants were successful
At OIC, we are known for providing an open and stimulating learning environment where students are encouraged to achieve their highest potential while enjoying the cultural life of the beautiful city of Oxford. Our students are taught by some of Oxford’s finest tutors, who are all experts in their fields. They are mostly Oxford University alumni or holding doctorate degrees from Oxford University. 

We foster a culture of responsibility for one’s own achievements, as well as a sense of duty to better the world we live in. Our innovative curriculum provides students with the best chances to succeed at university interviews, higher education, and later in their professional lives. We take pride in our unique integration of three key skills to success: Academic Excellence, Career Development, and Personal Development.



Much of OIC’s recent success can be attributed to its Chief Education Officer, Yasmin Sarwar. Yasmin was the original founder of another highest-performing A-level college in the UK for nine consecutive years, until it was dethroned by OIC.

In her career, she has sent over 300 students to medical school and over 200 to world-class institutions including Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, and Imperial. Yasmin also has a position on the recruitment panel for medicine in two top Russel Group Universities, which means she has her finger on the pulse of exactly what admission tutors are seeking.

Since she moved to Oxford International College three years ago, Yasmin's direction has transformed its performance. Watch a video of Yasmin, in which she explains the key ways to academic success.
