Colleges are similar to sixth form, but they are much bigger, and do not follow the same structure as a school. You may not be at college five days a week.
For example, your days could be Monday 9am-2pm, Wednesday 10am-3pm and Thursday 11am-5pm. This would be classed as full time.
You have more freedom to study on your own, you do not wear a uniform and you would be encouraged to be more independent. If you prefer structure and the layout of a school day, college may not be the best option. Colleges are a lot bigger than sixth forms, they can offer more practical courses including work placements and project work.
Colleges offer more courses then sixth forms and different qualifications. These can be:
- AS and A Levels
- T Levels
- Foundation Qualifications (including ESOL)
- Higher Education
- Adult Learning
Most colleges offer education for adults and night classes.
