Your Study Programme

Your Study Programme

Your Study Programme

You will create an individual Study Programme (SP) that will serve as your overarching strategy for success. The main feature of your SP will be your subject or subjects.

To complement these formal studies, you will add your choice of Enrichments and/or Academy commitments. Weekly tutorials with your Academic Tutor will be another important SP feature.

You will also use your SP to set targets for independent learning as part of our Blended Learning approach. This independent learning may be completed remotely or on campus. In addition, you will have timetabled slots for engaging with our Next Steps progression initiative.

Lessons

Depending on your course, you will receive between 16 and 20 hours of timetabled lessons a week. This includes blended learning.

Blended learning

Blended learning enhances and extends your learning beyond the classroom. You will be able to use the Brock Hub, STEM Study Centre and specialist studios.

Academic Tutor

You will meet weekly for a timetabled hour with your Academic Tutor. They will be responsible for your pastoral support and overall progress.

Next Steps

Next Steps events will be held from the start of your time at Brock. These include university talks, external seminars and recruitment fairs.

Enrichment

There are over 35 Enrichment opportunities to help you get more out of college life. These can help boost your UCAS application and growing CV by evidencing your additional achievements.

Extra activities

You can participate in a combination of extra activities to help you get ahead. For example, you can join an Academy, take part in volunteering and/or become a Student Ambassador.

Choosing your course

Whichever route you take at Brock, you can benefit from our unique package of academic and pastoral benefits that support high achievement. Below you will find information on each learning path.

 

A Levels are a natural choice if you have been successful on your GCSE courses and wish to build on what you have achieved by following an academic progression route.

You will focus on a smaller number of subjects – usually three. As a result, you can build your knowledge and understanding in the areas where you have proven strengths and interests. To help you succeed in your learning we will work with you to develop a Study Programme formula, which will feature various initiatives geared towards helping you achieve your goals.

Your Application Process

 

Step 1 – Application

September – March

Visit our website and apply online for 2024 entry. We need all applications by the beginning of March, but the earlier we receive them the better. Applications received after 1 March will be considered, but your choice of subjects may depend on availability.

Step 2 – Interview and offer

October Onwards

We will hold interviews from October at either the College, your school or via telephone appointments. Details of how to book your interview will be available on your Application Portal. At your interview you will be able to talk through your study options and future plans. You will also have the opportunity to tell us what you have done so far. In particular, we will want to see your Record of Achievement file, recent school reports, exam results and identification. You will receive
an email offering you a place and outlining your provisional course choices following a successful interview.

Step 3 – Freshers’ Days

June

This is your opportunity to sample your chosen courses, explore the campus and meet some of your new friends. It is really important that you attend this day so that you are confident about your course choices when you start at college.

Step 4 – Enrolment Portal

July

In July we will email you your Enrolment appointment and give you access to our Enrolment Portal. You will also be able to upload some of the information we need from you. For example, we need a passport-sized photograph to go on your student record and you must confirm your personal details.

Step 5 – Enrolment

August

At the end of August you will discuss your GCSE results with us and confirm your chosen courses. You will also select your Enrichment options.

Step 6 – Induction

Induction

This will be your first day as a new student. You will meet your Welcome Tutor and other students in your tutor group. You will also receive your timetable for the year.
