Richard Huish College is a centre of academic excellence with over 1,850 students taking A Level or Vocational programmes. Huish is a member of the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC). NARIC provides the only official source of information on international qualifications to organisations recruiting from overseas and to individuals wishing to study in the UK. Academic references may be sourced to support your application.
We have a wide range of A Level and Vocational Level 3 courses that you can choose from. Many subjects naturally fit well together while other combinations are needed for particular career choices. You might find it useful to look at Prepare for Success, an interactive web learning tool for international students who are getting ready to come to the UK for study in further or higher education.
