Choosing your A-Levels: subject pathways
You may have an idea of which ‘area’ you would like to study at university, and for your future career, but not yet be certain on the specific degree or profession. In this instance, it can be helpful to consider your subjects in terms of ‘pathways’.
At Kings, our students have a wide range of subject pathways to choose from, and as a result, progress to study many different subjects at the UK’s top universities.
Whichever subjects or pathway you choose, at Kings, you will also benefit from:
- personalised support
