Your first step on your way to studying at a UK university

The best preparation for your future

Bellerbys College is one of the most well-known and well-respected international colleges in the UK. Since 1959 we have been helping students from all over the world prepare to study demanding degrees at top-ranking universities.

We will be open for your studies (subject to satisfactory completion of our detailed health and safety risk assessment) and supportive staff at Bellerbys College will help you adjust to living and studying in the UK. If you cannot travel to the UK for the start of the first term, you can start your studies online from home. 

Engaging teaching and learning

GCSEs are renowned British qualifications studied by 14 to 16 year olds, providing the first step towards A Level or Foundation study, and later a place at a UK university. Depending on your age and academic ability, we have a choice of programmes available for you.

In order to create the safest possible learning environment, and whilst social distancing restrictions are in place, you will benefit from a mixture of as many face-to-face interactions as possible, supported by online learning. You will also receive one-to-one support, giving you help and guidance every step of the way.
