PREPARATORY COURSE FOR PEARSON EDEXCEL IAL (INTERNATIONAL ADVANCED LEVEL)

SSTC International Academy aims to maximise learners’ potential, enabling them to become well-rounded individuals ready for the next phase of their academic journey.

At the Pre-University level, SSTC International Academy offers a two-year academic programme leading to the Pearson Edexcel International Advanced Level (IAL) qualification.

IAL was created in consultation with world-leading Higher Education Institutions, which would open the doors to the world’s most prestigious universities. The subjects are designed to develop a balance of subject knowledge, understanding and skills that help students to become confident, independent and reflective learners. More information regarding university recognition of IAL can be found at this link.

A unique feature of SSTC International Academy’s Curriculum is the inclusion of the Character & Lifeskills Education programme that aims to mould our students into becoming individuals of sound character, having essential lifeskills that will strengthen their resilience, equipping them with the knowledge and competencies in becoming leaders in their own right.
