Why take A-Level courses?
USP College has a proud tradition of offering A-Levels to young people in Essex.
Being an A-Level student with us is about more than studying, it’s also about meeting new people, developing new interests and, with our help, progressing towards your dream career or university course.
10 reasons why students choose to study A-Levels with us:
1. Widest choice of subjects
We offer more than 35 A-Level subjects - the most offered by any college in South Essex.
In 2017-18, 31 A-Level courses achieved a 100% pass rate!
Studying with us is a fresh start and, though we’ll encourage you to work hard, college is also an exciting chance to meet new people and develop new interests.
4. Unrestricted options
We don’t restrict your subject choices to defined combinations or blocks. This means that it’s very likely you’ll be able to study any combination of our A-Level subjects.
5. Specialist courses
Very few other sixth-forms or colleges offer the unique specialist subjects that we do, such as – Analytical & Forensic Science, Classical Civilisation or Politics. You’ll be able to follow your interests and gain a qualification that sets you apart from the crowd
6. University support
If you plan to progress to university, our experienced staff will provide you with a comprehensive programme of support: from helping you to choose an appropriate course through to securing your place.
7. Established links
In addition to having established links with Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities, we also offer a dedicated tutorial programme to help students apply for selective Higher Education courses.
We have successfully delivered a high-quality A-Level programme for more than 40 years and our highly-skilled staff are A-Level subject specialists.
There’s more to College life than studying. Enrichment opportunities include our thriving Student Union, competitive sport, creative arts plus a full range of clubs and activities.
