‘The college exceeds expectations’  ISI Report 2015

These are known as the Gold Standard qualifications for pre university education, studied over two years in Years 12 and 13. AT LTC it is also possible for academically strong students to take them in one year with our Fast Track programme. The programme can also suit any student wishing to resit an A level.

UK universities usually require three good grades at A level, although some students like to take four subjects. Some students with strong academic credentials take more but we advise against this as it is completely unnecessary for entrance into a ‘top tier’ university.

If the student is from overseas and has not achieved a high grade in GCSE English Language, the universities will require a high IELTS mark, usually a 6.5-7.0 across all modules or higher for medicine and law.

ONE YEAR PROGRAMME

They are an excellent way of gaining desirable academic qualifications. These highly successful courses are carefully designed for students who:

  • have studied in the UK or abroad and wish to enter a UK university
  • are exceptionally strong and are wishing to progress quickly
  • want to re-sit a year to improve their grades
  • are ready for intensive work covering a two year syllabus in three terms
TWO YEAR PROGRAMME

This is the traditional UK timeframe and enables students to optimise their academic potential within a very personal teaching environment. Students are able to develop a passion for each subject of their choice and, with intensive teacher support, stay focused and achieve top grades. This is ideal for students who wish to thrive academically.

HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMMES

Created for those international students who wish to attend a UK college for one or two terms before returning to their own school, these programmes provide an opportunity to improve language and subject knowledge, acquire new study skills and have the cultural and academic experience of a lifetime. Detailed monthly reports and a completion certificate based on regular assessment are provided. It is an excellent way to sample the UK education system.

If for whatever reason students have not done as well as they or the school wanted them do LTC is happy to accept students to give them a second chance within a small group, providing intensive study.

LTC is an approved exam centre for Edexcel, AQA and OCR as well as a Trinity exam centre providing GCSE speaking tests.
Therefore we welcome external candidates who wish to sit A level and IGCSE/GCSE examinations at LTC.
