Our Admissions Process

Enrolment to CGA is competitive as we aim to maximise personalised learning and student success through small class sizes. There are 4 easy steps to join CGA.

During this call, we delve into understanding your child's unique academic interests, schedule requirements, suitability for online schooling and university goals.

Can I start from any time?

How long do the qualifications take? Can I take them faster?

The standard duration for International GCSE and International AS-Level courses is 12 months each, and a further 12 months for International A-Level courses. It is possible, however, for highly motivated students to complete the qualification more quickly.
