All 16-18 year-old students at City of Westminster College will follow a full-time Study Programme. Here Craig Hanlon-Smith, Deputy Director of 16-18 Programmes explains what that means.

We offer a wide selection of academic subjects and you will study for A levels over two years. Our tutors can offer you advice on your preference and guidance on the best combinations of subject during the interview stage.

We have an excellent track record in the teaching Humanities, Arts and English. Our students achieve better results than predicted and the pass rate is very high in all subjects. In several subjects the pass rates and proportion of students gaining higher grades is excellent

We also offer a range of support to help you succeed, including homework classes, numeracy, literacy support, learning support for study in lessons. Your A Level programme will be made up of three subjects, a tutorial, and employment skills including work experience.

General entry requirements:

To study three subjects at A level, you will need to pass six GCSE subjects at grade A*-C, including English Language. If you want to do science subjects then you will need to have Maths GCSE at grade B included.

Regardless of what subjects you apply for, the expectation is that your qualifications will be obtained through examinations and be full time courses. Other qualifications are valued and will help us understand your strengths, but we will assess your application on your predicted or known GCSE grades only. So, if you have a BTec or a GCSE in a foreign language for example, we will look at this but it will not necessarily mean you fill our entry criteria with such qualifications.

Students with previous A-level experience, including re-sit applications

Applications from students who have previously studied A-levels, including those seeking to re-sit, will be considered on a case-by-case basis only where general or subject-specific entry criteria are met and we are satisfied with your reference and rationale for wanting to restart.

Specific entry criteria for each subject

Below is a list of all A level subjects we offer and on each course page are the specific GCSE qualification and/or experience you will need before enrolling onto the course.
