We offer a wide range of A Level and GCSE courses that provide students with a traditional UK route to university and are proud to be the pioneers of the University Foundation Programme, a modern qualification that offers international students an alternative bridge to top UK universities. All of our programmes embody our core value of offering a well-rounded education that inspires our students to become empowered and achieve the best outcomes in life.We recognise the importance of a student achieving their university goal. However, we do not only view success by a list of rankings and league tables, but also by helping our students find the right university for them.
