Wyke College has a broad range of courses to match student interests, ambitions and ability. Most students choose Wyke to study A levels or a BTEC Level 3 qualification but we also offer courses at Level 2. The programme of study you will follow at Wyke will depend on your entry qualifications and of course your interests and future aspirations.
Level 3 Study Programme
At Wyke we offer more than 40 different level three courses, allowing you to put together a programme of study that exactly matches your interests, strengths and future aspirations. As an academic sixth form college we have the breadth and depth to deliver your course choices without clashes.
Students applying to join the College in September 2017 start following a series of A level changes. The main changes the Government are making to A levels is to reshape them into two year linear courses. This means all the examinations that count to the final qualification will be at the end of the two year course.
At Wyke students will choose the three or four A level courses that they will study over two years. Alongside these courses students will study at least one elective, one-year course. This pattern of study allows students to maintain a good breadth of study in their first year and be well placed to focus on their linear exams in their second year.
Once your application has been made, to help you with your course choices, and to discuss entry criteria and any other queries you may have, all applicants are offered an informal interview, which gives you an opportunity to discuss your options and to select the best course combination with a member of staff.
The College entry criteria for all level three courses can be found on our “Entry Criteria Guidance” pdf document.
