Where Will Cambridge Take You?
A Cambridge qualification is your educational passport to anywhere in the world.
Learners use Cambridge International AS and A Levels to gain places at leading universities worldwide including the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Egypt, Jordan, South Africa, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain.
The Lisbon Convention (an international agreement signed by 50 countries and international organisations, including the European Union, USA, Australia, Canada, Israel and New Zealand) facilitates the recognition of foreign studies among the signatory countries.
Admission to North American Institutions
In countries such as the United States and Canada, good grades in carefully chosen Cambridge International A Level subjects can result in up to one year of university course credit.
Over 485 US universities accept Cambridge International AS and A levels, including all Ivy League universities.
Research has been carried out to explore whether Cambridge International AS and A Levels predict readiness for and continued academic success at US universities. Findings from a number of research studies suggest that the Cambridge programme compares favourably with other, more established, acceleration programmes in the US including Advanced Placement (AP) and the International Baccalaureate (IB).
Admission to UK Institutions
Cambridge International AS and A Levels are equivalent to the AS and A Levels taken by learners in the UK, and are accepted for entrance to all UK universities.
UCAS is the centralised admissions service through which students must apply to study at UK universities. Find out about the A Level entry requirements for specific UK university courses by using the UCAS course search service.
UCAS provides international guides that help to explain UK higher education and how to make a university application through UCAS. These guides have been translated into a number of different languages which you can download from the UCAS website.
