It is a common misconception amongst students and parents that you need A Levels to progress to university. This is not always the case. Some BTEC courses allow you to gain enough UCAS points to study at your chosen university.

At Exeter College we offer a range of BTEC courses, some can be combined with A Levels and some are designed to be studied on their own as stand alone courses. BTECs are vocational courses that can be studied at Level 1, 2 or 3. They don’t generally involve exams, however there may be some element of external assessment. They focus on coursework, and give a balance of practical work and theory. BTEC Level 3 courses include Certificates, Extended Certificates, Foundation Diplomas and Extended Diplomas.
