Strategic Global Pathways

From the outset our students follow their own ‘strategic global pathway’, focussing on the outcomes they want to achieve. A specialised programme and dedicated team of tutors and personal m

entors ensure that students choose the right career path, degree course and university for them and devise a step-by-step plan to help them maximise their chances to achieving their goals.

The Academic Pathway

It is important that students choose their A-Level subjects with a particular university degree in mind. It may not be possible to apply to some degree courses without having taken some specific A-levels.

  • UK Universities: 3 to 4 A-level subjects UCAS preparation
  • US Universities: 3 to 4 A-level subjects ACT/SAT preparation
  • Universities of Hong Kong/Singapore: 5 A-level subjects, Chinese
  • Rest of the world: 4 A-level subjects, plus native language if required

Students follow a six-day timetable where they are required to take short exams in each A-Level subject on most Saturdays. These have been proven a helpful way for students and teachers to identify areas for improvement and helping students to prepare most effectively for exams through sufficient past paper practise. Our teaching methods are comparable to undergraduate level teaching at university. Many of our teaching staff are graduates from the University of Oxford and top universities worldwide and they know what it takes to achieve top grades. Our tutors have subject knowledge beyond the A-level curriculum and exam strategies that ensure students achieve the best results.

The Career Pathway

Our Oxford Mentor Programme is designed to prepare students for their chosen career and to guide them through to successful university applications. The programme is delivered by mentors who are currently undergraduate, postgraduate or doctorate students at the University of Oxford. The programme consists of aptitude test preparation required to gain entry to certain degree courses and a bridging programme to widen students’ knowledge of their chosen career path in the fields of medicine, science, economics, engineering and law.

A dedicated member of staff ensures that all students are provided with hands-on experience through work shadowing and internships. Each June/July, students can participate in the Goodwill Ambassador Programme in Malaysia which offers them the unique opportunity to get real-life exposure to their future degree subject by shadowing doctors, scientists, dentists, lawyers, engineers and other professionals.

After the first term, students are given the opportunity to take the Extended Project Qualification which gives them the opportunity to research a specific topic of interest beyond the A-level syllabus. The EPQ is highly recommended for students applying to top universities as it demonstrates motivation to pursue further study in the student’s chosen subject and provides an impressive talking point in the personal statement and interviews.

Personal Development

Students are guided to take responsibility for their own performance and wellbeing through participation in enrichment and extra-curricular programmes that develop them as a person. Learning to be confident, resilient, pro-active and focussed is key to performing at our best. All students take part in an off-site residential course at the beginning of the academic year to introduce them to team-building and leadership skills and are encouraged to take part in the following activities throughout their stay with us:

  • Competitions
  • Clubs and societies
  • Student Council
  • Public speaking at weekly assemblies
  • Sports and physical activities
  • Skills workshop such as coding or surgical skills
  • First Aid qualifications
  • Mindfulness

Start Dates and Entry Requirements

Two year A-level programmes start in September
18-month A-level programmes start in January

Prospective students will need to have IELTS 6.5 or equivalent. Prospective students are required to sit admission tests in their chosen subjects, as well as an online aptitude test. We also take into consideration previous school reports and any other qualifications achieved to date.
