Advanced Study Programme (Level 3)

You are able to choose an Advanced Study Programme that is individualised to suit your interests and abilities. It will provide you with the knowledge skills and experiences to progress successfully to university, an apprenticeship or employment.

Your Advanced Study Programme (Level 3) will typically consist of 3 core subjects +1 additional option. In the first year this might be an AS course progression option or enrichment such as sport, music or drama. 

In the second year your +1 might be a progression option such as The Extended Project Qualification , Arts Award, Core Maths or a Sports Leaders Award.

GCSE qualifications are most suitable for Level 3 study. A lack of GCSE English Language at grade 4 will significantly restrict study programme options. Equivalent qualifications at Level 2 in vocational courses are accepted, provided they are related to the course which has been applied for. However, theses courses are not adequate for entry alone for an Advanced Study Programme and would always need to be accompanied by an appropriate range of GCSEs.

What is an Advanced (Level 3) Qualification

At Godalming College we offer A Levels, Pre-U and BTEC Nationals. They attract UCAS points for university and are useful to provide evidence of advanced level study for employers and apprenticeship providers.

Advanced (Level 3) Entry Requirements

If you achieve at least 5 GCSEs at grade 9-4 you will qualify for study on a Level 3 programme. GCSEs are the most suitable qualifications for study at this level. See individual course for additional entry requirements in some subjects.

Snow Leopard Conservation in India

This summer several students from Godalming College embarked on an expedition to India for 4 weeks. They travelled to the Himalayan region of Ladakh close to the border with Tibet to work with the Snow Leopard Conservancy Trust India whose programs are meticulously designed to conserve the mountain eco-system in collaboration with local communities.

After acclimatising to the altitude, the group worked for 7 days building an animal corral for a family that had seen 60% of their herds killed every year by snow leopards. The new corral was designed with features that ensured future livestock would be safe at night from predation.

Following on from the project phase, the group set off on their 7 day trek up the Markha Valley which saw them reach an altitude of 5250m!

Godalming College work in partnership with True Adventure who run expeditions every summer.
