About Pre-A Level
This one-year programme will give you the opportunity to combine GCSE or BTEC qualifications with supplementary English language support.
The Pre-A Level programme is ideal for students who would like to progress to a UK university preparation course, such as A Levels or BTEC Level 3, but do not have the academic background to do so.
Academic and vocational classes are taken alongside UK students, giving you more opportunities to practice your English and experience British culture. GCSEs are the internationally-recognised qualifications gained after completing the first stage of secondary education in the UK and can be studied in a variety of subjects such as:
- Science (Applied) Single Award
- Science (Applied) Double Award
You can choose a vocational BTEC qualification which are available in the following subjects:
- Art and Design
- Performing Arts
- Information Technology
- Travel and Tourism
You will also be given the opportunity to attend taster sessions which are designed to give you an introduction to A level subjects available at Sussex Downs College.
