One Year GCSE Programme The One Year GCSE Programme enables students not only to secure the qualifications they require to progress to more advanced studies but also to acquire the essential academic skills they need to make a success of their further studies. The syllabus encompasses a core GCSE curriculum of Mathematics, English, and Science. Students may also choose a further two optional subjects from; Art and Design, Further Mathematics, Geography, History, Languages or Triple Science. University Pathway The University Pathway course has been designed to give international students the support they need to apply successfully for business-orientated vocational degree programmes in UK universities. The course covers English Language, Business, Mathematics and Studying in the UK. In English language students are taught the language skills required for studying in English, preparing them for essays and examinations. In Business, students work on a series of projects and tasks, often in pairs or groups, to research, develop and then present ideas, a way of studying that is much closer to the independent learning they will experience at university. A-levels A-level courses normally take between three and six terms to complete and prepare students for successful application to a full range of competitive degree courses at prestigious universities. The course provides students with superb teaching, delivered by experienced and committed A-level subject specialists. Business BTEC The BTEC Level 3 Diploma is the vocational equivalent to two A-levels, taught over one year or two and providing the same university entry scores as A-level. It provides a practical and theoretical introduction to business which will suit those interested in a career in business who want a more hands-on course than A-level.
