The GCE Advanced Level qualification, or A-level, is the gold standard of the British secondary education system. It is the usual and preferred entrance qualification of all British universities and is recognised all over the globe. A-level qualifications are usually studied over a period of two years with public examinations at the end. At Oxford International College we also offer an 18 month programme for students who wish to start in January and a one-year intensive programme.
Achieving high A-level results ensures that students are able to apply to the best universities and higher education institutions worldwide. One of the great advantages of A-levels is that they provide students with the opportunity to specialise in the subjects of their choice before university. Below are highlights of the excellent grades achieved by students who graduated from our two-year A-level programme in 2016:
|A*A*A*AA||University of Birmingham||Medicine|

Oxford International College specialises in A-level study in small groups and offers an extensive range of academic subjects. Entry requirements are six A* grades at GCSE with IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. At the core of our A-level programme is a combination of traditional and exam-based teaching techniques which over the years have proven to be highly effective. As an institution we pride ourselves on the outstanding quality of our teaching, therefore our main focus is on ensuring the same high academic standards are maintained throughout the programme.
We offer fully-catered boarding packages with superb accommodation at our modern and purpose-built Hall of Residence. Students can join our two-year A-level programme in September or January. Students joining in January will receive greater contact time with tutors, both in theory classes and in practicals, where applicable, in order to ensure that the entire syllabus is covered whilst still leaving sufficient time for revision and examination practice.
Many of our teaching staff are graduates from the University of Oxford and top universities worldwide. Among our teaching staff are research scientists, published authors of academic literature and experts in their fields. Our students receive careers counselling at the beginning and throughout their studies. The college provides expert help with university applications, IELTS qualifications and any special aptitude or entrance tests that may be required such as TSA, MAT, BMAT and UKCAT among others. For additional academic support students take part in our evening Oxford Mentor Programme taught by post graduate students from the University of Oxford and our college tutors.
