Our A-Level courses are an entirely tailored journey for each student – from the first advisor meeting to the final university destination.

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 mentors 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.

Strategic Global Pathways have three components, corresponding to the three pillars of our curriculum:

  • Academic Pathway (corresponding to our Academic Excellence)
  • Career Pathway (corresponding to our Career Development)
  • Personal Pathway (corresponding to our Personal Development)

Our Academic Pathway is the core of the A-Level syllabus.

The Academic Pathway

Learning in practice


Students follow a six-day timetable where they are required to take short exams in each A-Level subject on most Saturdays. These help students and teachers to identify areas for improvement and enable them to prepare most effectively for exams through sufficient past paper practice.

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 high grades. Our tutors have subject knowledge beyond the A-level curriculum and exam strategies that ensure students achieve the best results.


Choose the right pathway


We offer different pathways depending on the preferred outcome:

  • 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




The choice of specific A-levels can maximise a student’s chance to be accepted into the degree. Before the course begins, our expert academic team will be in touch to provide career advice and a personalised academic plan, which includes subject selection.

All subjects can be offered if the student’s preferred degree requires them. Please contact the college for more information.

Students who have not studied UK Curriculum History before will be asked to complete a history Bridging Course (30 hours of tuition) if they choose to take History as a subject.

The one-to-one tutorials and personalised teaching at Oxford International College helped me fulfil my dream of scoring all A grades at A-level and reading Chemical Engineering at Imperial College, London.
