Applying to an international school is a little bit different than in America.
I can’t tell you the exact process or cost because it depends so much on each individual school. They all require the same application though: The Universities and College Admissions Service. They have similar academic standards. They want to see a nice GPA, a rigorous high school course load, good test scores, etc.
The average annual tuition of £8,647, which is almost $14K USD. For international students, the average is more than $16K. The financial aid depends on each individual university. You will have to ask an adviser what options they have for international student financial aid.
Oxbridge is actually referring to two universities: University of Oxford and University of Cambridge. You should decide what you’re interested in studying, and then pick the school who is best at that area. So if you’re interested in biology, you should go to the school with the best Biology program.

You need to be pretty certain about your degree. If you’re not sure what you want to major in, going to the UK, isn’t a good idea. Their students have to choose an area of study immediately because they don’t have the freshman/sophomore core class buffer zone. You start working on your major immediately.
You will need to apply for a student visa once you’ve been accepted and proven you can pay tuition.
