British Education System

The Education system in the UK is different with other countries, the high academic standards is renowned worldwide.  A levels, IB and Foundation courses are offered in the UK as the main qualification to gain entry to a British university.

Differences in school systems and insufficient level of English, sometimes, not all students fit exactly with the traditional system. In this case we can recommend courses with flexible start dates and schools offering English language support. The Brighter Prospects Admissions team will match your academic history, level and age group with the right course.

The standard academic year begins in September and is made up of three terms. It depending on the courses, some courses offer January start.

State Education

Students can either choose a state sixth form college or a college of further education. Both offer GCSE and A level courses for students from the age of 16. Colleges of further education also offer foundation and diploma courses. All colleges can prepare students for entry to a UK universities.

We work with a number of state colleges in South East, those courses provide a multitude of vocational and academic courses. These courses can enable students to pursue their chosen career or to gain a place at a university of their choice.

The Private Sector

Brighter Prospects also works with many private schools and colleges in the UK.  Private school or colleges are generally more expensive than state colleges. Those private school are for students from 11-18 years of age and follow the traditional education system.
