Why Study Citizenship?

Citizenship is a fun and engaging A-level focused around politics and ethics. If you like politics and want to learn more about how our democracy is shapen then this is the subject for you. Be expected to take part in active citizenship such as debating in class and forming political or protest groups. You don't need to have taken this course at GCSE anyone who watches the news or debates on BBC will have most of the knowledge in their head. Although citizenship is seen as a soft subject it is fairly straight forward and easy subject.

Despite what some may say this is not just an AS level but it is a full A level and is accepted by most universities.

Since citizenship is about politics and community it would make sense to lead on to running for local council or gaining a bigger role in a political party. Also you could go on to university study any politics related subject however some universities may not accept citizenship but most do.
