“The curriculum has an international flavour and offers an approach to learning that encourages independent research and critical thinking.”ACG Strathallan school,
As part of the Cambridge Advanced stage, the Cambridge International AS and A Level curriculum offers over 60 subjects so learners can choose to specialise or retain breadth. For Cambridge Pre-U, learners choose from 26 Principal Subjects, in addition to the Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Independent Research Report (GPR).
At the end of a course learners gain Cambridge International AS and A Level qualifications or Cambridge Pre-U qualifications. All qualifications are internationally recognised and valued by universities and employers worldwide.
Cambridge Advanced, typically for 16-19 year olds, helps learners to develop deep understanding and independent learning and critical thinking skills which universities value highly. It builds on the foundations of Cambridge Secondary 2 and leads to entry to universities worldwide. Cambridge Advanced includes Cambridge International AS and A Level and Cambridge Pre-U qualifications; both focus on equipping learners with skills they need to succeed at university, and as such, are recognised by universities and employers worldwide.
A wide range of teaching and learning resources are available. These include Cambridge International A Level resources and Cambridge Pre-U resources such as syllabuses, past papers and mark schemes, subject-specific teacher training events and Professional Development Qualifications. Learners have access to the Cambridge Students website.
Cambridge offers a range of community activities for schools including events for Cambridge school leaders and teacher training courses. In addition, the Cambridge Teacher Support website brings teachers around the world together to share ideas and best practice. You can also join the dedicated Cambridge Pre-U Online Community.
