The only A-levels taught on a university campus

You'll study on the University of East Anglia campus, a leading science research institution where world-changing discoveries are made.

You'll take Cambridge International Examination (CIE) GCE A-levels, which are welcomed by the world's leading universities as the highest quality preparation for entry to their courses. 

Along with Oxford and Cambridge, all UK and Irish medical schools recognise these advanced qualifications, and many high-ranking US universities award credit units for high exam scores.

Need extra English support? IELTS classes are given to all international students until you reach level 7.5.
