Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC)

We have a long and successful heritage and over the years thousands of people have chosen to study with us at our campus in Twickenham. We offer a wide range of courses and subjects for 16-18 year olds including A levels and an extensive choice of technical qualifications from entry level through to level 3 including BTECs, NVQs and Apprenticeships.

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements are dependent on the course and level you choose - please check the website/course guide. Most Level 3 courses require you to have 5 GCSEs at grade A*C including English and Maths, and most A Levels will require a minimum point score of 5. With technical qualifications such as BTECs and NVQs, you are able to work your way up to the Level 3 qualification from a Level 1 or 2.
