An Oxford undergraduate celebrates the end of her second year examinations in medicine


It all started when…

Two sisters, one a Cambridge and one an Oxford graduate, founded u2 with the idea of creating a bespoke, female-led educational company, which would offer unique learning opportunities to inspire student curiosity and exploration. u2 works with the brightest academic minds in the UK, with a team of 600+, all of whom hold a degree from Oxford or Cambridge. Our mentors have specialisms in over 90 different subjects, from Maths and English to Computational Biology, Robotics, Medieval languages and Experimental Psychology.

Each student is paired with a primary academic mentor, who works with the team to curate a programme geared towards their personal academic goals. Through u2, students are provided an unparalleled opportunity to learn from subject experts, to school their intelligence beyond traditional realms of learning and prepare for the rigours of entrance examinations in an increasingly competitive educational landscape.

The mentor's role goes further than typical 1-1 tuition - this includes subject-specific and admissions guidance, suggesting additional mentors with particular expertise in other areas for subsidiary lessons and provision of regular feedback. This ensures each student will reach their full academic potential. 

u2's programmes and masterclasses cover all aspects of a student's education, be it general aptitude tuition, our Scholarship programme for 11+ and 13+, or Oxbridge entrance programmes. Our Extra-Curricular Concierge service allows students to access additional opportunities. This ranges from work experience, language masterclasses in over 8 languages including Arabic and Mandarin, to individual coding coaching with Oxbridge Computer Scientists able to guide a student through the digital world. Other services include masterclasses with fine artists, drama workshops and sports coaching with u2 mentors who have performed at both National and International levels.

We combine face-to-face and online tuition to allow students to access the highest quality learning experiences, from all over the globe. On a u2 programme, each student can access subject advice and expertise from the team of Oxbridge-educated mentors, at the click of a button. Our mission is to give our students an educational advantage so they can thrive in the fast-moving world we live in today.
