The Study Centre A-Level Foundation Year course is designed to bring a student's standard of English up to the level required for entry into a mainstream UK Sixth Form. The programme is aimed at International Students aged 16 and above looking to progress on to an A-Level course but who have not yet passed GCSE English, the IGCSE, Cambridge Advanced Certificate or IELTS Grade 6.
For International students looking to attend a UK Sixth Form, we offer a course of intensive English Language learning and the option to study for one or more IGCSEs. Student's International has over 20 years English Language teaching experience and is accredited by the British Council for the purposes of teaching English as a Foreign Language. With our deliberately low class sizes, we can always focus on the needs of the individual, ensuring our students progress quickly and with confidence.
The course involves up to 39 hours of tuition per week, including 23 hours of English Language lessons
While the focus of the course is on improving the English Language skills of the student, they may also wish to study towards an IGCE in one or more of the following subjects:
When it comes to the Sciences and Mathematics in particular, students may well have a good understanding of the subject from studies in their own country, but may not have the specific English vocabulary required study in the UK. Extra attention will be paid in English Lessons to ensure that our students are suitably equipped with the subject vocabulary required for their chosen course and examinations, with specific attention paid to subjects that may be studied at A-Level after the course is completed.
Upon completion of the course, the student will be ready to apply for a place at a UK Sixth Form. Through the Students International Guardianship Service, we have built up strong relationships with many boarding schools across the United Kingdom. We are always on hand to help with the school selection process and our Registered Visa Advisors are available to help with Visa applications.
