How You Will Study

All of your lessons and assessments are available on CloudPort - our Moodle-based learning environment (Moodle VLEs are used by most colleges and universities in the UK).

Start with lesson 1 and work through the course in a linear pathway or choose to jump to the section that you need. Your learning is completely flexible and allows you to set your programme of learning around the skills you need.

Submit assessments as you work through the course. Get instant results and feedback on activities to track your progress. Use these assessments as learning launchpads, allowing you to focus your time on the topics you need to brush up on.

You will have access to all course materials, assessments and tutor support for 24 months from the day of enrolment. Extensions are available for students who wish to study over a longer period.

Your Own Dedicated Tutor

You are not alone! You will be assigned a personal 1:1 tutor on your day of enrolment. Your tutor will remain by your side, throughout your learning journey until you get qualified.

All tutors are qualified teachers and subject matter specialists who will ensure you have the correct guidance and support when you need it. As a CloudLearn student you will have unlimited access to tutor support.

Assessment & Examination

CloudLearn GCSEs and A-Levels are structured around formative assessments allowing you to test your knowledge as you work towards qualification. Before taking your exam you will submit a mock exam to give you the practise you need before the big day.

When ready we arrange your exam. We have agreements with exam centres all over the UK. Our students also take advantage of preferential pricing due to the volume of students we channel to exam centres.

As part of your enrolment service package we will make all the arrangements for your final exam. This includes locating a centre and booking the relevant exam/s. Exam fees are additional.

Exam fees can be bundled using the Exam Bundles drop down when adding to basket. Have a look on our Exams Page for a detailed explanation of this service.

The AQA A-Level Philosophy exam is available in May/June each year. It is assessed over 2 exam papers:

  • Paper 1 7172/1 - 3 hour exam
  • Paper 2 7172/2 - 3 hour exam

We generally ask that you book written exams at least 6 months in advance, however subjects that includes NEA (A-Level Eng Lit & A-Level History), Practicals (A-Level Sciences), or Fieldwork (A-Level Geography) you are recommended to note the following deadlines for booking and give us at least 8 months booking notice.

Booking deadlines are 5-8 months prior to the exam date.

Booking your exam after the booking deadline will incur late fees (available for one month after deadline) and high late fees (available up until exam entry closure).

Fast-track Your Learning

Some students will study for the exam over a period of months or years, as they dictate their own study schedule. We do however have students who will study intensively and prepare in a matter of weeks. You are only constrained by the exam diet. A-Level exams are available in May/June of each year.

Career Pathways

By taking part in our Online A-Level Philosophy Course, not only will you gain a thorough grounding in key philosophical concepts, themes, texts and technique, but you will also develop a range of transferable skills, which can be applied far beyond the study of philosophy and will set you apart from other candidates in your chosen field or profession. You will enhance your communicative, argumentative and critical thinking skills through developing the ability to reason, form your own judgements, express yourself coherently and contribute to the process of debate. You will also improve your analytical and interpretative skills through understanding the ways in which philosophers have analysed the core concepts of philosophy, and be able to identify how subtle differences in analyses can have wider impacts on philosophical arguments.

Furthermore, you will also test your creative skills and ability to adapt by independently generating arguments, objections and counter-arguments. Furthermore, by learning about four of the core philosophical concepts, you will discover the importance of open-mindedness and reflection. We also hope to show you the benefits of continuous learning and intellectual curiosity by inspiring a sustained enjoyment of, and interest in, philosophy.

Therefore, the skills that you will acquire during the CloudLearn Online A-Level Philosophy Course can set you apart from your peers and put you on a path toward further learning or a successful career in a wide-range of professions.
