Study an A-Level from home!

February 9, 2016

Do you need those important UCAS points to gain entry into university? Then studying an A-level from home is a convenient and hassle-free way of helping your get onto your dream degree! But what exactly are they?

What are A-Levels?

A-Levels are advanced level qualifications that will give you in-depth knowledge about the subject that you are studying. Many students after GCSE’s go on to study A-Levels to gain entry into university. As a distance learning college, we also encourage those that have missed the opportunity to go to university in the past to study an A-Level and go on to achieve that all-important degree. These qualifications open new career paths and helps you provide a brighter future.

Variety of choice

We offer a variety of A-Level courses, which means there is a course for everyone, even you! These include:

What do the courses involve?

A-Levels take up to 2 years to complete. In the first year you will study for your AS Level. These are equal to just under half an A-Level and involve 180 guided learning hours. The second year you will be completing your A2 Level. This is the full qualification and takes into consideration your AS results. Over the 2 years you will be required to have studied 360 guided learning hours. Depending on the subject you choose, you may have to take up to 4 examinations or submit coursework.

I am very impressed with Open Study College, this is the first time I have studied an A-Level from home and I am more than happy with the materials I have received. I am making good progress with my course and all the material is set out in a good structured order that is easy to understand. I have not yet had to use the tutor support, but will be sending my first essay in a few weeks so hope the service is as good as what I have experienced so far – Kyle Boswell
