The Academic Course for International Students

Students embarking on this one-year programme can customise the elements of their individual course depending on their age and language abilities. This can include studying for a pre A-Level qualification, a range of iGCSE or GCSE courses including Maths and English, the Cambridge First Certificate in English or an IELTS qualification. To complement these studies, you will study with our day pupils in a range of subjects including Art, Business Studies, Computing, Drama, Science or Food and Nutrition in Rye St Antony’s own Leiths’ professional kitchen.

At the end of the one-year course, you can graduate with an internationally recognised qualification but also key skills such as higher level reading and greater fluency in English plus the self-confidence of having lived as an international student in a cosmopolitan city such as Oxford. Upon graduation, you will be ready to embark on A Level studies in the UK in preparation for university or will return to your country of origin to begin the next stage of your studies at home.
