    Hi there, as the title says, can i study at 2 different colleges at the same time?

    Reason i ask is that im planning on studying a lvl3 diploma in Music Performance at one college. But i am also planning on studying Physics and Maths at another college in case the music route doesnt go to plan.

    Im also aware you can study 4 A levels at once so i was wondering if anyone knew how many A levels the level 3 diploma will count as? Im hoping its only 1 or 2 so i have enough left to study my Maths and Physics.

    Thanks

    You can do more than 4 A levels!
    And ask both colleges- they'll have their separate protocol.

    Its called being a consortum student, you can take a certain subject at another college, alot of the kids at my school do that if subjects clash with each other.

    Yeah. I'm doing advanced highers in college and I can think of a good handful of people that either attend a different college or a university. There's one woman doing a masters in law at uni and 2 advanced highers at my college, another guy is doing an economics degree.

    It might be a bit of a struggle though with your studying, but you'll just have to get your head down.

    Thanks for helping me out, at least i know its possible.

    Now my only other concern is, i know for a fact my music diploma is run over a monday and tuesday (full days), but what happens if my maths and physics course at the different college fall on the same day, can colleges work around you or do you have to decide which ones more important to you? Has anyone got any experience of this?

    I go to one sixth form but the idea's the same - my chemistry and further maths clash. I self-taught further maths until I did my final practical and then swapped timetables to take further maths lessons and taught myself the remainder. The head of maths went through stuff with me after school on Fridays. Then, once I lost chemistry lessons, my chemistry teacher went over stuff with me every Thursday and I still attended one chemistry lesson per week that didn't clash.

    They'll do what they can to help, trust me. But be prepared to do loads of work to catch up outside of lessons.

    Only if the colleges/sixth form are in collaboration and your lessons don't clash. You will need to contact them, but it is possible. I know a few people studying different subjects two different colleges.
