Stand out from the crowd with Extend

Exeter College is delighted to offer a varied, exciting and stretching academic study programme for A Level students, aimed at helping them to maximise their potential.

If you are planning to study an A Level programme at Exeter College you will need to enrol on a four element programme. This will commonly consist of three core A Levels (or a combination of A Levels and BTEC Extended Certificates) and a fourth element, or ‘Extend’ option, which can be selected from a wide range of courses depending on individual interests and potential progression plans beyond college. If you enjoy the academic challenges of studying A Levels then you may choose an additional A Level as the fourth element.

So what is Extend?

Extend is a bespoke selection of courses, specifically designed to enhance your learning and help you stand out from the crowd. Our aim is to provide students with an enriched academic experience while helping to develop a curious and questioning mind, fully preparing you for your next steps beyond college.

The opportunities available vary from learning a foreign language to Game Design, studying for an Arts Gold Award or participating in a Sports and Physical Therapy Programme. This is just a taster of what is available, for a full list of activities please come to one one our Open Events.

We believe that these additional academic, social and vocational experiences will strengthen your profile by developing the types of skills that universities and employers are looking for.

With lots exciting options available to you we recommend that you carefully consider these options before you attend an interview with us. Think about your strengths and how these skills will benefit you in the future. Ideally you will have made a decision about your fourth option before you attend your interview.
