Part time Course Studies in Admissions tests and preparation in England in United Kingdom.

The A-Level course here at Oxford Royale Academy offers students aged 16+ the chance to study with us for up to 2 years. The A-Levels (also called Advanced Levels) are recognised worldwide and are used as a condition of entry for the UK’s best universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Here at Oxford Royale Academy, students study in classes of no more than four to ensure that all students benefit from close personal tuition, whilst also having the opportunity to share ideas with their peers. Oxford Royale Academy prides itself on treating every student as an individual. We allow our students to build their own bespoke timetable with additional options of supplementary study such as English Language, University Preparation and Careers Guidance. We also support students in deciding which A-Levels they would like to take, advise them on opportunities to develop their learning outside the classroom and help them to build independent learning skills which are necessary for further study worldwide. In addition to the academic programme, students at Oxford Royale Academy are provided with a vibrant range of extracurricular activities and entertainment which supplement the curriculum. All students are able to reside and study in Yarnton Manor, benefiting from this beautiful location and its excellent learning facilities, whilst also being just 15 minutes from Oxford’s bustling city centre.

A-Levels are among the most respected and accredited exams for school leavers in the world. A-Levels are the exams taken by students aged 16-18 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. More than ¾ million candidates take A-Levels every year, and the A-Level results are recognised by universities worldwide. A high grade in the A-Levels is important for entry into top universities in the world such as Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge and Yale. The A-Level programme at Oxford Royale Academy offers the chance for students to take up to 3 A-Levels over a 5 or 6 term period. In addition, there is a 3-term programme for students who are of exceptional ability and are considered to already have covered the first year of A-Level material. Whilst many schools and colleges offer the A-Level programme, few offer such a bespoke and tailored timetable as here at Oxford Royale Academy. Here, students can pick and choose exactly which individual A-Levels they would like to study, and can choose to supplement this study with our supplementary study modules such as UCAS and University Guidance or Academic Essay Writing. In addition to learning the subject knowledge needed to achieve a high grade in the A-Levels, students also learn how to revise effectively, how to structure an essay and how to prepare a presentation in our weekly academic skills workshops, and have the opportunity to enrich their knowledge with our personal development programme. We are confident that you will progress at a much faster rate here at Oxford Royale Academy than other schools or colleges. In most Sixth Forms, schools and international colleges, the average class size is 20 people. Here at Oxford Royale Academy, we prefer the Oxbridge-style teaching methods, focused around a maximum of 4 students in a class (called a tutorial). This style of teaching offers the chance to discuss topics in depth with the tutor, to ask questions and to complete the course at your own pace. A-Levels are notable for their academic rigour. While any subject will require some memorisation of facts, A-Levels generally reward creativity, insight, analysis and deeper understanding rather than the shallowness of rote learning. This makes studying for A-Levels a good preparation for the kind of mental dexterity required at university, as well as being a satisfying intellectual challenge that will leave you feeling academically stretched.

Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Chartered Membership (CM) Examination Preparation Class - part-time There is a significant difference between a junior engineer who can carry out the design of individual structural elements and a senior engineer who can identify engineering problems and solve them with viable structural solutions within the scope of a design brief, taking account of structural stability, durability, aesthetics and cost. One of the purposes of this course is to assist junior engineers in their journey to become senior engineers. The course is open to all structural engineers wanting to develop their skills to include structural scheme design. It is assumed that all engineers enrolling on the course have a good working knowledge of design of the primary structural materials. The course includes manual methods of analysis and manual design calculations. It also encourages the use of hand drawn conceptual design sketches and sketch details. Throughout the course, use will be made of past questions from the IStructE CM Exam in tutorials to allow engineers to practice new techniques learnt on the course. There will be a day long mock exam where candidates will be given the opportunity under exam conditions to take a recent exam (likely to be last year’s exam). Opportunity will later be given for peer marking and discussion of the mock exam scripts (or other scripts brought to the session). Marks will not be given by the session leaders and the mock exam is not compulsory. The course includes issues such as exam technique, time management and mark allocation as well as opportunities for coaching using tutorials. In one session, we will invite one or two engineers who sat and passed the examination recently to speak on their experience of the examination, give their suggestions for suitable preparation strategies and answer some of the questions that trouble candidates. Two of the sessions are earmarked for bridge design; however the following topics are excluded from the course: offshore engineering, silos, chimneys, water towers and seismic/dynamic problems. Finally, as the course is exercise and tutorial based, those candidates who put the most effort into their contributions will gain the most from the course. “You get out what you put in.” Entry requirements Applicants should hold BSc (Hons) or BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering or Structural Engineering and be in the process of completing the IStructE’s Professional Review Interview.
