Our team is currently spread across Oxford, Cambridge, and London. You can find out more about each person by hovering/tapping on their image.
The Central Team is comprised of key members who lead each part of InsideUni, helping to maintain our projects in Oxbridge, and setting our direction on a national level. Tommy, our CEO, works to set our national direction, while the President and Vice-President oversee the running of InsideUni in Oxford and Cambridge.
Our Content Team is responsible for curating the crowdsourced written guides, blog posts, and the crowdsourced database of student interview experiences on the InsideUni website. They also help to create our video content, which we launched last summer, and help manage our social media platforms. They work closely with the Head of Content and our wider team of volunteers who help write and edit content.
The Outreach Team works to spread awareness of InsideUni within Oxford, Cambridge, and to prospective applicants across the UK and even further. This includes recruiting thousands of student contributors, nurturing our campus communities through running events and collaborating with student societies, and making sure applicants know about our website. This has included social media, press campaigns – such as our feature in The Guardian in 2020! – and other projects at the regional level.
Our product team is responsible for developing our website and platforms for editing content. Our website is coded entirely in-house, meaning we can be flexible and innovative in thinking about how we can shape our website to best help applicants.
We are recruiting for our product team! If you have a couple of hours a week spare, and would like to write code for a website receiving thousands of views per month, fill out this form.
Our Project Advisors are all former team members who come together and offer insights and support to our current committee on a regular basis. They all have expertise in certain areas of the project, and we love that former team members can bring their knowledge and ideas to the project even after they leave as a volunteer!
InsideUni is a non-profit, student-led project making university applicants more accessible for everyone. We publicly launched in September 2018 in Cambridge, and launched in Oxford in October 2019 following our success in Cambridge. Since then, we have grown from a team of just three founding students, to over 40 team members, and 3,000 student contributors.
We started by crowdsourcing interview experiences, as that’s the least well documented part of the Oxford/Cambridge application process. By crowdsourcing these experiences from students and then editing them to explain terminology and bust any myths, we are able to provide unique outlooks that are accessible for students everywhere. You can find our database of interview experiences under the Interviews tab at the top of this page.
Next, we moved onto broad subject guides, and now offer written guides on choosing a course, sitting the admissions test, and general resources like our guide for international students and on accessing welfare support at Oxbridge. In 2021, we launched the InsideUni blog. You can find all of these under the Guides and Blog tabs at the top of this page.
In April 2020, we began a series of live online video Q&As with students from both Oxford and Cambridge. More recently, we have been posting short videos on YouTube (linked at the bottom of the page) and we’re looking forwards to expanding this content in the coming months.
You can reach out to the team through our social media (linked at the bottom of the page) or you can email us at [email protected].
We look forward to hearing from you!
