Careers and Higher Education Opportunities

A study of Religious Studies complements other popular A Levels including Philosophy, Law, History, Sociology and English Literature. It is less likely that someone will spend all their life in one company or organisation-the so-called job for life. If your career path is to be varied you will need to develop transferable skills and you will need to be flexible. RE fosters these qualities and provides a firm base for life-long learning. Students will often go on to do degrees in a vast number of areas including Religious Studies, Journalism and English.

 

Extra-curricular enrichment opportunities

Students are supported through the course with a wide range of catch-up session and drop in classes where they can discuss classwork in more depth. Students may get the opportunity to visit local universities and will receive lectures from guest speakers from time to time.
