A Level studies…your way
April 3, 2019 / Libby Barrett
Choose Open Study College for your A Level studies and enjoy a completely different learning experience
If A Level studies bring back memories of long lessons, the class clown being disruptive, and strict assignment deadlines then you’ve obviously never studied on a distance learning basis.
Instead of lessons delivered on a strict timetable, we’ll provide you with all of the course materials you need to work through the syllabus at your own pace.
If you want to study everyday, great! If you can only manage once a week, that’s also fine. Somewhere in between? The choice is yours! We know that people’s lifestyles can be changeable from one week to the next. That’s why our courses offer the flexibility for your learning to fit around your lifestyle; not the other way round.
You’ll be allocated a personal tutor who will be there to support you for the duration of your A Level studies. Contact them by email with any queries you may have, and they’ll be happy to provide help and support.
There are no other students to disrupt you because you learn wherever and whenever suits you. Study at the kitchen table, on the sofa, in the garden – find a place that is conducive to being able to concentrate and work away.
Strict coursework deadlines don’t exist with distance learning. The flexibility of the course means you can complete your assignments and submit them to your tutor when you’re ready to do so.
The only deadlines you’ll work to are submission dates for any coursework which counts towards the final qualification, and the exams themselves.
Why study A Levels?
Although A Levels are traditionally studied between ages 16 and 18, that doesn’t mean they’re only a qualification for young people. In fact, A Levels in various subjects are in our top 5 selling courses for both males and females across all age groups.
A Levels are, of course, an entry qualification into degree study at university. Each A Level is worth up to 56 UCAS points, which can be used to support a university application and secure a place. But A Levels are also highly revered by employers across the world; showing a dedication to learning and a level of education which can also be applied in the real world.
Perhaps you’re thinking of a career change? While you may not need to be educated to degree level in your new career, a relevant A Level will show dedication to making the change, open doors with potential employers, and even secure access to any further vocational training or qualifications you may need.
Or maybe you want to study an A Level “just because”. Whether you didn’t study A Levels at 16, didn’t do as well as you hoped first time around, or just want to develop a deeper knowledge in a subject of your choice, we can help you with that too.
Getting back on track
OSC student Christian realised his original A Level studies weren’t the right ones for him to pursue a career in writing, acting and directing.
He chose to study A Level English Literature with us to get him to where he needed to be.
“The standard of the course materials is superb. It’s as if you’ve taken the best notes during a lesson and had them checked over by a teacher.”
Christian is now looking forward to a bright future:
“…all in less than a year from changing my mind on what I wanted to do with my life.”
