Academic courses - A comprehensive programme of GCSEs and A Levels is offered through The Academy - the College's purpose-built 6th form centre. The Academy offers AS Levels (Advanced Subsidiary) which form the first part of a full A Level and are a qualification in their own right. The second half of the full A Level is the A2 Level.. We encourage students to pick up to 4 or 5 subjects at AS Level, which normally narrows down to three A2 Level subjects, but variations to this are possible.
Vocational courses - We offer a huge range of vocational subjects which give students real skills for the workplace. These courses suit young people if they have a career in mind and want to pursue a work-related qualification. Courses are offered at Levels 1 to 3, in a range of subject areas and involve a mixture of practical work and theory, often including work experience. Level 3 vocational courses eg BTEC Level 3 qualifications are equivalent to an A Level programme and count towards UCAS points, which are required for entry to Higher Education.
Helping students go higher - If students want to experience Higher Education but wish to stay living locally, we offer HE qualifications in a range of subjects, offering practical skills combined with theory. Many of our Higher Education students progress onto the second or third year of a degree course after successful study at Uxbridge College.
