The GCE Advanced Level qualification (‘A-level’ for short) is the gold standard of the British secondary education system. It is the usual and preferred entrance qualification of all British universities.
At Oxford International College we offer the following A-level programmes:
• Two-year programme (for first time students)
• 18 month intensive (for first time students)
• One-year intensive (for first time or retaking students)
• One term re-take (for retaking students)
We also offer short revision programmes during school holidays and Half Terms, lasting from one day to three weeks. These are offered through our partner organisation Oxford Science Studies.
A-level Course Structure
Full time A-level students typically take three or four AS subjects in the first year, and three A2 subjects in the second. In exceptional cases students may be able to complete both AS and A2 examinations in a single year, depending on the subjects studied.
A full A-level programme usually consists of 15 to 25 hours of tuition per week, including individual tuition, mini-group tuition (two to five students), and supervised independent study, all conducted within the College.
The amount of tuition required is determined by the student's academic background, target grades, university destination and English language proficiency (for non-native English speakers).
Most students begin their studies at the start of the academic year in September. However, the flexibility of our tutorial system makes it possible for students to enrol at other times by arrangement.
