Additional Notes

For full time students the course will form part of a larger programme of study which consists of timetabled sessions, enrichment activities, work experience and private study time. To achieve this a student will normally be asked to select from columns of the 6th Form matrix in each year of study. If a student falls below this programme requirement they may be classed as part time by some external agencies and may be required to pay fees for their tuition and/or exams. Please check with the tutor at interview that the subjects you have selected form a full-time programme. Every full time 6th Form student will have a personal tutor and will study a tutorial programme. The tutor will be responsible for the pastoral care of the student and for the tracking and monitoring of their progress on the course. This subject can be selected on its own for part time study for which tuition fees may be payable (please consult Student Services for fee concessions). Part time students may also be required to pay exam fees. You may have the opportunity to go on trips during the year. A small charge will be payable for these visits.

Case Studies

Jason A2 Accounting, Economics, Business Studies I thoroughly enjoy the independent nature of studying at College. I will always be grateful towards the College for placing great faith in me and allowing me to achieve my aspiration of studying at university. The College provides all the necessary facilities and expertise for students to succeed. I have obtained an unconditional offer from the university of my choice studying my chosen course of Accounting and Finance. I enjoy the practical element of my accounting course as we often learn by doing rather than just learning from a book. My experience of learning at Gloucestershire College has been nothing but positive and I would highly recommend it to prospective students.
