Now you have the opportunity to attend our two-year A-level courses at a convenient new location in Leoforos Kifisias (299) in Halandri. In collaboration with IMS, who offer the renowned Strathclyde MBA in Greece, we offer two year A-level courses at the IMS premises in good proximity from your school.
Who are we ?
This is a collaborative initiative between Foundation College, a centre dedicated to the preparation of students for entry to British undergraduate courses since 1988 that was recently awarded the Pears/Edexcel Outstanding School Award, and IMS a recognised private tertiary education College that offers Strathclyde University's postgraduate courses in Athens.
Teaching will be done at the IMS premises on Leoforos Kifisias 299 about 500m from the pedestrian bridge at Filothei with easy access from the local Psihiko and Filothei schools.
Which A-levels ?
The subjects that are being scheduled for teaching are: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry και Biology. However more subjects may be added to the list if there is sufficient demand.
Teaching will start around mid-September each year and each subject will be completed over two 35-week academic years. The first year of the course covers the AS-level syllabus and the second year covers the A2 syllabus. Classes are twice per week (at two hours per session for a total of 4 hours per week) for each subject in afternoon classes that commmence at 4 pm.
Who are A-levels for ?
A-levels are mainly studied by students who are in their penultimate and/or their final years at school who plan to study at English-speaking degree courses and especially at British Universities. However A-levels are open to anyone who wishes to attend them and we set no pre-requisites for admission. It is possible for outstanding students to commence studying for their A-levels a year earlier.
How many A-levels ?
Typical admission offers by UK universities specify three A-levels. However when A-levels are combined with other qualificiations, such as the Greek Apolitierion, it is common for students to be admitted with fewer than 3 A-levels. In any case, students should aim to complete the A-levels that they can successfully complete along with other school commitmentrs. Remember that A-levels are an essential preparation that safeguards not only the successful progression of students onto UK degrees but also their prospect of successful completion of their degrees.
When and where are A-levels examined ?
The International A-level by Pearson/Edexcel are examined three times a year (January, June and October) and the examinations can be taken at a number of centres in Greece including Foundation College or the British Council. Our teaching schedule prepares students for the June examination session but exams (or re-examinations to improve grades) can be taken at any examination period.
The tuition fees for each year (that represents half of one A-level) are 1950 € per subject studied. The tuition fees do not include the examination fees which are payable per examination.
Please call IMS on 210-7230814 to make an appointment to discuss your questions with Mrs Ferendinou or Dr Valsamis at the IMS premises on Leoforos Kifisias.
