Welcome to the Resources section!

If you want to get into a good university, it’s essential that you stretch yourself beyond the school syllabus BEFORE you make your applications. Luckily, it’s never been easier or cheaper to do this: the internet is chock-full of free lectures, articles, university courses, blogs and so much more to interest you, inspire you, make you laugh- and get you thinking like a university student.  We call stuff like this “super curricular activities”.

Not sure where to start?

The resources featured on this page cover a massive range of topics, so they’re a great place to get started if you're not yet sure where your interests lie or feel like finding something new. If you want to search by rough subject area (like 'Humanities') or by specific subjects (like 'History'), just use the toolbar above to navigate. If there's nothing up for your subject yet, do check back later as we'll be adding resources as we find them. Even better, follow us on twitter so you'll hear about updates to the site as they happen.
