Programme Objectives 

The Cambridge international curriculum is recognised by universities and employers worldwide. The Preparatory Course for Cambridge International Advanced Level is designed for students who have completed GCE O-Level or Cambridge IGCSE with acceptable results, to gain access to undergraduate studies locally and internationally. It builds on the foundations of Cambridge Upper Secondary.

Upon completion of the course, students will sit for the Cambridge International A Level examination which is conducted by the Cambridge Assessment International Education.

Cambridge IGCSE examinations are held twice a year (May/June and Oct/Nov) and candidates are to register with our College before the closing dates.

 

Hear from our Students / Graduates

“As an international student, I met with friendly, warm and approachable staff who helped me to adapt to the new environment. Staying in the hostel made it very convenient for me to come for lessons.”

“I chose an education pathway at College to better prepare for my career goals. At the end of my studies here, I hope to be one step closer to my dreams.”

Joshua Alexandre Darmawan

Class of 2020

“Throughout the 16 months that I spent in College as an 'O' level student, I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge as well as met people with different backgrounds. I was very fortunate to attend classes with caring and dedicated teachers who provided support as well as help when needed. The staff are genuinely friendly and do their best in meeting your enquiries and concerns. I am confident to say that each teacher will do his/her part to discipline and motivate students to study by providing sufficient amount of homework as well as sharing tips on how students should manage their time better. I have experienced the multi-racial life and made friends from all around the world. Studying in the College was really a joy and it was truly worth of my time and effort!”
