China

With our partner UK China Connections, Alton College is establishing close links with a number of Chinese High Schools, principally in and around Shanghai. Students and staff have taken part in exchange visits and we have an ongoing International Student intake programme running with Xinghua High School in Jiangsu Province. In this programme, selected students are following AS level classes in Xinghua, supported by Alton College staff, prior to coming to Alton for their final year and taking their A2s with us here.

We also run individual student recruitment programmes for both two year and Fast Track one year A Level courses in partner cities such as Shanghai, Nantong, Zhenjiang, Taizhou and Xinghua.
