Facilitating subjects are the subjects most often needed for entry to degree courses. The Russell Group universities call them ‘facilitating subjects’ because choosing them can widen your options for university study.
This does not mean that subjects not listed as a ‘facilitating subject’ have less value. They are just less often required for general entry to degree courses. Some non-facilitating subjects are specifically required for certain courses, for example, Welsh.
Impartial advice and guidance regarding options after Key Stage 4 is available for you from a variety of sources including subject teachers, Careers Advisors, Heads of Sixth Form and Head Teachers and also through the Unifrog programme.
In addition to supporting you choose your subjects for September, help will be on hand when it comes to making applications to university or college, and for work experience and apprenticeships.
If you’d like to book an appointment to discuss your options, there is an online options afternoon on Tuesday May 25th between 4pm and 6pm. This will be with our A Level teachers and Head of Year.
