Flexible course choices
Courses at CIFE colleges offer a great deal of choice. They provide a very wide range of subjects and build in an unusual amount of flexibility. If you want to take an unusual combination such as Accounting, Psychology and History you'll find it at a CIFE college. Most colleges allow students to choose virtually any combination of subjects and to take a programme which includes several course types.
Final year sixth form and one-year A-level courses
If you want to join a CIFE college for the second year of A level, not only will you have a good choice of colleges which can provide the right second-year courses, but most will allow you to combine those courses with a new AS level or even a subject in which you cover the whole new A level during the year. For example, If you want to combine second-year Maths and Physics with a one-year Chemistry A level, most CIFE colleges will be able to help.
GCSE courses at CIFE colleges
GCSE courses are equally flexible, usually offering subjects such as Photography as well as the main-stream GCSEs, and allowing students more choice than schools usually can. Most colleges offer GCSE courses covering the whole syllabus in one year, and you can combine 'core' subjects you have already studied with new ones to add extra interest to your programme.
Retake and Easter Revision courses
Finally, CIFE colleges have in-depth experience of shorter courses unavailable at most schools, such as A-level and GCSE retake courses and Easter Revision.
