One-Year IGCSE

The One-Year IGCSE course enables students who are age 15+ to achieve the same qualification that British students gain in two years. How do we do it in half the time? Small classes, specialist teachers and the focus that comes from everyone being on the same journey. The shorter, more intensive course is a cost effective way to gain this internationally recognised qualification.
