Academic & Pastoral Support
You can be assured we will offer you an outstanding educational experience and treat you as an individual. We have a dedicated and professional teaching staff assisted by excellent support staff. All students will meet with their Learner Coach twice a week to review their progress and follow our pastoral programme on Wellbeing. We encourage our international students to integrate themselves within the whole college, however the international office is available for guidance and help outside of lesson time.
Applying to University & Higher Education
Having attended a UK-based college and succeeded at A level will greatly assist your application to a British university. The college’s pastoral programme will assist international students in applying to university through providing academic references and support in writing your personal statement.
St David’s also has a dedicated Destinations Department, who offer support, workshops and advice when it comes to applying to University.
