Loughborough College, as one of the best public colleges in the UK, has a strong tradition of academic success. This has been achieved through a combination of outstanding teaching, excellent links with universities, superb facilities, and a robust pastoral care system; enabling each student to achieve his or her true potential.
Our International A Level Programmes are an excellent option for those international students who wish to follow the traditional pathway to top UK universities.
Students are required to select three A Level subjects to study over the duration of the course, with many also choosing to take an A Level in their first language* at the end of their first year.
Subject combinations are structured into a series of “pathways”, ensuring that students develop the specialist knowledge required for their future studies at university. These include:
- Arts and Humanities pathway
- Business, Finance, and Economics pathway
- Computer Science and Mathematics pathway
- Science and Engineering pathway
This approach allows our international A Level students to take full advantage of the close ties that the College has with Loughborough University and be involved in a number of the orientation events organised for the College’s international students.
It also enables international A Level students to access a variety of subject-specific support facilities and be involved in a range of enrichment activities focused specifically on complementing their subject pathway and enhancing university progression.
Our A Level programme is an environment for dedicated learning. Progress and attendance are strictly monitored, with parents receiving reports from teachers on a termly basis. Parents also have the opportunity to attend meetings with teaching staff during the year or alternatively can request progress updates regarding a student’s development by email or Skype.

GCE A Level is one of the world’s most recognised qualifications and is highly regarded by all universities around the world.
A Levels offer a chance for early specialisation for students who already have a firm understanding of what subjects they wish to study at university or which career path they would like to follow.
Our programmes are specially tailored to the needs of international students and their future progression choices.
