GCSE and IGCSE
The GCSE is the national qualification taken prior to A-levels, usually over a course of two years. The IGCSE is the internationally recognised equivalent and is transferable between countries, allowing foreign students to continue their home country education in the UK.
At Oxford International College students are able to choose the type of study programme best suited to their individual needs from a range of programmes combining individual and group tuition. We offer inclusive boarding packages in superb, single en-suite rooms and studios at our brand-new student boarding house within 7 minutes walk of the college

CSFC Group Programme
This programme is offered in partnership with Cardiff Sixth Form College (CSFC), the Number 1 ranked A-level school in the UK. Combining the expertise of both our institutions, we are able to offer fully catered boarding and expert tuition in small classes with fees comparable to the traditional British boarding schools. Students can take up to six subjects, five of which are compulsory:
- English Language and Literature
A sixth, optional subject is offered at the discretion of the college and will be either Additional Maths or Business Studies, depending on the student's chosen career path.
Mini-Group and Individual Tuition
Depending on individual needs and circumstances, these bespoke programmes consist of between 15 to 25 hours of tuition per week and are taught in mini groups with some individual tuition, or individual tuition only. The amount of tuition required is determined by the student's academic background, target grades and English language proficiency (for non-native English speakers). Most students begin their studies at the start of the academic year in September, however the flexibility of the tutorial system means that students can join us for a programme of individual tuition at any time during the year by arrangement. For the list of subjects available for mini-group tuition please apply to the college.
