We are currently accepting applications from EU students. Each year we have a handful of EU students in college studying a wide variety of year long courses, making new friends and improving their English. This compliments the study visits abroad organised by college and gives our students a greater feel for variety of opportunities available in world today.
As an EU student you will come for a minimum of one academic year (September – June) and be taught in normal classes for Advanced Level courses. This means you will need to have a sound working knowledge of English before you arrive here (we require IELTS 5.5) but also that your English will improve rapidly as you make English friends. EU students also take part along with the English students in the Guidance Support Tutor and Enrichment programmes which include the opportunities to become involved in sporting and recreational activities.
The College is a relatively small sixth form college, some 1100+ day-time students, allowing students to be recognised as individuals and their personal needs addressed. The College allows free internet and e-mail access to all students so they can remain in touch with friends and family whilst in Scarborough. Likewise parents can seek guidance from the College on their son’s / daughter’s progress, attendance and needs.
The College teaches Advanced Level courses to a high standard. Therefore we will expect you to have IELTS 5.5 or higher in English as a minimum. We may also ask you to complete some tests to assess your current level of working.
We ask that you submit a recent reference from your school or college with your application form. Due to funding regulations you will be required to provide certificates to prove that you have studied Maths and English whilst at school in your country of origin otherwise you will need to study them whilst at Scarborough Sixth Form College alongside your other course choices.
If English is not your first language, you may be expected to take additional lessons in English to familiarise you with the complex and specialised language used in your studies.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer accommodation for students. However there are a number of language schools in Scarborough who may be able to help you to organise this. You MUST inform of us of your accommodation plans including your address in Scarborough before enrolment.

"The British teaching system is good! It is about helping each of us to do as well as we can and help us if we're having difficulties."
"I've really enjoyed the energy, the people, and the study spirit that everyone has."
