Achieving an up-to-date formal qualification will demonstrate that students have desired skills that prospective employers are looking for. These skills will give students an advantage when they apply for Employment. GCSE lays a strong foundation for GCE A Levels which will also help students in their University education. Therefore our teachers are committed to help our students starting from Year 10 in each and every phase of their GCSE education. Teachers provide students with sufficient support at every level to help them achieve high grades in their GCSE exams.

As a Student and Child Student Route Sponsor, HIC welcomes applications from international students. On the 5th October 2020, the new Student Route and Child Student Route replaced the previous Tier 4 system in anticipation of the UK leaving the European Union (EU) at the end of December 2020. The new Student Route and Child Student Route, which fall under the UK’s new points-based immigration system, allow applicants from the EU, as well as outside the EU, to apply for a visa to study in the UK. You are welcome to contact us via email or telephone, or submit an enquiry through our online form, and we can guide you through your options and next steps.
For an initial assessment, applicants must submit a copy of their passport and most recent school reports, after which we can advise on next steps. Subject to meeting our entry requirements, applicants will be required to complete the application process (Stage 1).
All applicants will also be invited for assessment and interview (Stage 2). Applicants to HIC are required to sit our English and Maths tests, and may also be asked to sit additional subject tests, depending on their A-Level subject selection.
We will provide feedback on completion of the assessment and interview process (Stage 3).
Should the candidate require visa sponsorship, our admissions team will advise on the documents required to provide you with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) to use for your visa application.
The college can help in arranging accommodation locally and will also be able to help parents to find local guardians (if they are unable to find a guardian themselves).
