A Level Programme (Science)

A Levels are very useful internationally recognized qualifications, which open up new opportunities for you to get a place at universities in UK, Hong Kong, Singapore or Australia. You will need the right A level subjects to get a place on your chosen undergraduate degree and to enable yourself to step forward onto your ideal career path in both Asian and Western countries. Our A Level Programme focuses on Science subjects, in which Asian students tend to find easier to achieve remarkable grades. If you wish to pursue other A Level subjects, please contact us as we may be able to accommodate your need too.

We have partnered with Oxford International Study Centre, a prestigious private institution in Oxford in delivering our face-to-face A Level Programme in Oxford.

The campus is a charming red building right in the heart of the city of Oxford, with the iconic Town Hall immediately to the right and the world-famous Christ Church to the left.

Combining our expertise in tailoring curricula to the specific needs of Asian students and OISC’s long history of academic achievement (with some of the best Oxbridge and Russell Group university admission results in the UK), the A Level programme is ideal for students arriving in the UK to prepare themselves for entering the leading universities in the country.
