More about GCSE courses

Whatever your aspirations and goals for the future, you’ll most likely need GCSEs to get there. Introduced in 1988, the General Certificate of Secondary Education remains the UK’s primary recognised certificate of foundation-level education and is viewed by employers, colleges and universities as the minimum expected standard for prospective candidates.

Perhaps you aspire to go to university? If so, gaining GCSEs is the first step toward sitting a degree. You’ll need GCSE courses or IGCSE courses to progress to A-level courses, which remain the most prevalent means of accessing higher education. The obvious choice is online GCSE courses. What’s more, here at Oxbridge we also offer IGCSE courses, which are qualifications of equal merit with the added benefit of being internationally recognised. Both GCSEs and IGCSEs can be studied by adults online.

How does my work get marked?

Once you have submitted your assignments, your tutor has up to two weeks to mark your work and provide feedback, although this will often be sooner. Depending on the type of course you are studying, you will either have your work graded to the national framework, or you will receive a pass or a referral. If your work is referred, this means you need to resubmit your work after taking onboard your tutor’s feedback and making improvements.

How much do exams cost?

Exam fees vary depending on where you sit them. Planning on studying A-levels or GCSEs with us? Learn more about our exam process for these course categories.

Students can contact our partnership centre to find out more – you can find their details on MyOxbridge under NEAS and Exams.

When does my student support start?

Your student support will start as soon as you have paid for your course and will last for the set duration of your course. Support is available from your tutor and our highly trained administration team who can answer any questions you have. Shortly after enrolling, you will receive the contact details for your tutor and the login details to the MyOxbridge learning portal. From then onwards, you can contact your tutor as often as you need to; you can decide how much support is best for you. However, your tutor will not chase you for work. You are required to self-learn and reach out to your tutor for help whenever you need it. If you reach the end of your course duration and you have not completed the work, you can extend your tutor support, but there will be a fee to do so.

Very impressed
trustpilot rating
I called Oxbridge after perusing their website and spoke with a very polite career advisor. My questions were answered knowledgably and I was supported and guided to a qualification that best suited my long-term goals. When the course arrived I was very impressed and I loved that it was also on-line because I have a young child who needs my attention often. I loved that I was able to work at my own pace, with no pressure. I loved that you can genuinely complete the modules as fast or as slow as needed and I felt as though I learned a broad spectrum of content. Oxbridge offered me fantastic supportive teachers, I have only positive things to say. I highly recommend this college to others.

Fantastic Life Coaching course and support
trustpilot rating
I have recently completed my NCFE Level 3 Life Coaching Course. From my intial enrolment to completion of the course the service has been 5 star. Any queries were explained and the customer service was superb. I would like to acknowledge the fanstastic support and excellent communication from beginning to end of my tutor Sarah Tottle. As a city proffessional and leader, I have high expectations of service delivery and time management. Sarah exemplified both. I would highly recommend Oxbridge Home Learning. A great team, doing great things. Chris Middleton

5* service from the moment I enquired online

I couldn't recommend Oxbridge home learning enough, I received 5* service from the moment I enquired online, I then spoke to a lovely lady over the phone who was one of the course advisors, she made me feel at ease and explained exactly what courses I would need to enrol on to teach lash extensions. I completed the cava course and the education and training award in 9 months and im now fully qualified and in the process of setting up my training academy, my tutor always responded swiftly and marked my assignments very quickly. My life has been changed around.

What an amazing company!

I am currently taking a Skills in Business Level 3 Diploma and have been nothing but impressed with Oxbridge Home Learning so far. Throughout the signing up process, Hayley helped me extensively to get started and get the course materials through as quickly as possible. She wasn't just trying to sell the course to me like other places that I enquired about, Hayley was genuinely interested in my needs and how she could help that, whether that resulted in buying the course or not. The materials given are incredible, easy to follow chapters and just enough information to ensure that you can understand easily. The content itself is really interesting and is made even more easier for me by breaking the course down into little, manageable assessments instead of one big portfolio or exam. My tutor, Jade, has been brilliant in getting back to me so quickly, both with questions and marking. Feedback has been really relevant and helpful with a breakdown of grades achieved. So far I can honestly say, having signed up for a few other courses and being let down, this is the best course all round by far. Everywhere will have positive and negative reviews however I would definitely recommend this course and company to anyone who wishes to study and gain an extra qualification.

Thank you Oxbridge for being brilliant! Very professional, always supportive and happy to help. Fantastic communications, clear course materials and concise expectations. I regularly recommend the STALIS level 3 course on Facebook forums. I'm considering doing level 4 and definitely won't go anywhere else!

I enrolled with Oxbridge for the STL…
trustpilot rating
I enrolled with Oxbridge for the STL Level 3 Certificate in February and I have really enjoyed the process. It took me years to build up the confidence to go for what I wanted and the thought of going to a college to do it made me want to hide away. Finding Oxbridge was like a light at the end of the tunnel and I have not regretted it one bit. Being able to work around my 3 young children, work and volunteering in a school all day, was one of the best things about taking the course with Oxbridge. I cannot thank my tutor Kerry Ore enough for all of the support she has given me throughout my learning journey. Any time I emailed with a query, I had a reply from Kerry within minutes. When I sent Units to her to be marked, they were marked and sent back within days (I think the longest was around a week), or if there was anything that needed to be added to a unit I was made aware of it quickly. Kerry is absolutely amazing and is a credit to Oxbridge. The course material was fantastic along with the online learning portal and it was laid out in a way that is easy to understand. The interactive scenario's were fab too. I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this course and building on my skills and knowledge. This course has given me new found confidence too. I have enjoyed my experience that much, that I will be enquiring about new courses in the coming months (I'm going to enjoy this achievement for a while first 🙂 ). Thank you very much Oxbridge and a special thank you Kerry Ore 🙂

I contacted Oxbridge to enquire about English Functional Skills Level 2 about a month ago. I needed to pass this course to be able to attend University this September. I completed the course work with the help of Jade and sat the exams at the Birmingham Office, I just received my pass results. I am thrilled, Jade is excellent and helped me every step of the way. Would highly recommend Oxbridge.
