York College

A-Levels have long been seen as the gold standard qualifications for UK students wishing to progress to university, and are the traditional entry examinations which enable English students to access their degree or higher-level study.

Our International A-Level Programme has been developed for overseas students wishing to take part in this success story. International students on this course will study alongside local students and complete A-Level qualifications, usually in three subjects.

The course is ideal for academically able students who are at least 16 years of age and ready to face the challenge of living and studying overseas. Note that this course can be studied for either one or two years. However, university entry can only be achieved after two years.

Please note than telephone or Skype interviews will be conducted with all A-Level applicants. For more information on applying for an International A Level with York College, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
