Applied Courses — Solihull Sixth Form College

Applied Courses

As well as A Levels, we also offer a range of applied courses: these are BTEC National Diplomas (equal to two A levels), BTEC Extended Diplomas (equal to three A levels) or Technical Level 3 Diploma courses (also equivalent to three A levels).

What is the difference? Well, applied courses offer a slightly different way of learning. If you prefer to be assessed by way of coursework, rather than examinations these might be the better option for you.

The range of applied courses can be seen below. Go to each subject page to see more detailed information on what is taught in the course. You can also download subject leaflets, which include exam results and case studies on these pages as well.
