I'm not totally sure how to start my own thread on here yet, but I have gotten a lot of information from reading this one, and I have a few questions of my own... So here goes :
I am an American student, and though I am only in the eighth year and this may seem a tad early, I am wondering about what it takes to get into Oxford University. This has been a lifelong goal of mine, and since I will be starting high school this year, I would really, really like to know about applying for a PPP (Physiology, Psychology, and Philosophy) degree at Oxford. I am wondering what sort of courses I should take over the next few years that will prepare me for this degree. Though my school offers many IB and AP courses (which I plan to take advantage of), it only offers one of the PPP courses (Psychology). I would like to know if this will affect my chances of being accepted. Is there anything else that I could do, starting as soon as possible, that would help prepare me for an oxford degree?
I have gotten a lot of information from this forum and from the University of Oxford website, But I am still wondering, if, when you apply to Oxford, you must apply to an individual college. I was under the impression that you applied to the University as a whole and chose a college later in the process.
Thank you so much!!
