GCSEs are the traditional route to A Level studies for most UK students with students studying 9-10 different subjects over the course of 2 years. At St Andrew’s we can offer you the same, you will study 9 subjects in small classes with the individual attention of a personal tutor. Students choosing a GCSE course will live near to college in one of our halls of residence with a live in House Manager to look after them.  This course is intensive and requires commitment along with a good level of English to achieve success.
