WHAT WE OFFER

INTENSIVE FAST-TRACK A-LEVEL & (I)GCSE COURSES

Condensed, fast-track courses may not be suitable for all and the progress of students is closely monitored to ensure that they can cope with the demands of the chosen programme. This choice is more appropriate for mature students who have the required level of academic preparation or who have recently experienced a ‘change of heart’ in their field of study and are looking to start their (I)GCSEs or A-Levels afresh following a careful subject selection.

A-LEVEL PROGRAMME (1 YEAR)

An intensive fast-track A-Level programme for academically able mature students who wish to condense a 2-year A-Level study in 1 year.

The main intake happens in September and January, however, due to the nature of the institution (where lessons are delivered on a one-to-one basis: tutor-student), it is possible to join at any point in the academic year, subject to availability of places.

Duration: 1 academic year i.e. 3 terms or extended to 4 terms (including summer months).

Students normally select 3 subjects, which are closely related to the field of study they wish to pursue at a university.

(I)GCSE PROGRAMME (1 YEAR)

An intensive fast-track GCSE programme for academically able mature students who wish to condense a 2-year GCSE study in 1 year.

The main intake happens in September and January, however, due to the nature of the institution (where lessons are delivered on a one-to-one basis: tutor-student), it is possible to join at any point in the academic year, subject to availability of places.

Duration: 1 academic year i.e. 3 terms or extended to 4 terms (including summer months).

Students normally select 5 to 9 subjects, the compulsory are Maths and English, the rest are chosen in accordance with student’s academic interests and abilities.
