The main goal of the program is to prepare for higher education at the university. Certificate A-level allows admission to a higher institution without examinations. This is a standard program, typical for most colleges in the UK.

A-level courses and modules do not provide for a large number of academic subjects. The first year requires an in-depth studying of 4 sciences, in the second year students are fundamentally learning three disciplines. Before entering the A-level, the children have already chosen a specialty and know the subjects necessary for studying at the university. The college recommends not to study short courses, since some modules in them can be repeated, disrupting the balance of academic programs.

In CATS College London, foreign languages, a complex of art studies (plus fashion), literature, medicine, media, jurisprudence, economic theory, architecture, finance, business, natural subjects, sociology have been chosen for studying. Talented students can pass the accelerated A-level.
