Which course type to choose?

A Levels are studied over two years and are mainly assessed via exams at the end of those two years. These can be studied in practically any combination.

T Levels are vocational qualifications, equivalent to A Levels, that combine academic classroom study with a significant work placement of around 3 months.

Vocational courses tend to be more practical and hands-on, and are assessed via practical observations/examinations, coursework, projects etc. Some courses include work experience.

Apprenticeships combine workplace learning in paid employment and learning in the College environment, and can be assessed in a variety of ways including practical observations, building a portfolio, online tests etc.

What our students say
Marcus Sociology profile

“Sociology is interesting and fun, with brilliant tutors who guide you through the course with detail and fun activities. Learning about the social aspects of society gives you a wider view of the world and how it’s shaped you, but it also teaches you how you can cope in the world.”
