The program is designed for students who plan to study at A-Level, but do not have sufficient English or have not achieved a convincing level of subject knowledge. Program is also geared towards learning the materials required to obtain a GCSE certificate of secondary education. Program reveals the inclinations and talents of children, discovers possible areas for their professional development. Also the Pre A-level Program allows filling in the gaps in the knowledge of the GCSE disciplines.

When entering the Pre: Program, students do not need to know their future specialty. Teachers in the course of studying  will "adjust" the program for a particular student and take into account his abilities. You can choose a pre-university program during your studies.

In one year, adolescents must undergo five subjects:

  • Biological course;
  • Mathematics;
  • Basic physics;
  • English
  • Chemical course.

This is a mandatory list. Selectively you can take the study of such disciplines:

  • Doing business;
  • Photography;
  • Art and design;
  • Media research.

CATS College Cambridge pays a lot of attention to foreign languages. In addition to in-depth studying of English, French, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, German and Spanish are taught.

A-level is a classical pre-university curriculum. A fundamental study of several specialized subjects allows you to enter a higher school without exams. A characteristic feature of the A-level is the harmonious unification of the theory with the practical application of this knowledge. Students learn to search for information independently, to critically evaluate it and to make conclusions in non-standard essays. The teaching staff is focused on providing the basics of knowledge, counseling and professional orientation of future students. The school provides assistance in preparing and submitting applications to universities.

At the A-level, during two years children study up to 5 preferred subjects. It is possible to take exams on modules or the final course work. For those who have already chosen a university and know exactly the list of necessary subjects, it is possible to study 3 to 5 trimesters. This is an intensified program, and it is offered by the college only after reaching the age of 17.

CATS College Cambridge in the form of specialized disciplines allows the study of higher or general mathematics, cinematography, accounting, video and photo art, graphics and 3D design, historical course, biology, English literature, business basics, geography, economic theory, chemistry, music, modern technology, art history, the course of textile design, psychology, mass media and sociology. Foreign languages ​​provide a choice of Russian, Japanese, German, Italian, Chinese or Spanish.

Sixteen-year-old pupils are expected to complete 5-6 trimesters, and older children can choose the accelerated program and pass the necessary items for 1 year.

Beginning of the studies is in September, January.
