Course Description

This A Level English Language Distance Learning Online Course is ideal for anyone wishing to gain a knowledge and understanding of this subject or for anyone who wishes to study at a higher level at University. You will also find this course extremely valuable if you are looking for a progression route for further training whilst employed.

Please note: A’ Levels are changing over the next few years, click here for more information.

This A’ Level English Language course forms part of the new linear qualifications. This means that students will sit exams for their particular qualification at the end of the completed course in the June series.

AS levels will become decoupled from A’ Levels; this means that they will both become entirely separate qualifications. You will no longer be able to carry forward your AS qualification to the A’ Level qualification and you will sit either AS or A’ Level exams.
