    Will taking free online courses with verified certificates on subject areas related to the degree I want to take improve my chances of being accepted into universities like Oxford and Bath?

    They're not going to be used as part of your offer, so won't make up for weak grades.

    You may be able to talk about them in your personal statement, and so show your genuine enthusiasm for the subject. But you need to talk about what you learnt and why it's relevant to a UCAS application - how has it helped your desire for further study? Has it helped you realise your passion for this area of study?
