What will I learn?

You will study the following Highers:

  • Higher English
  • Higher History (Langside only)
  • Higher RMPS (Langside only)
  • Higher Psychology (Anniesland only)
  • Higher Sociology (Anniesland only)
  • Guidance tutorials to support you throughout your course

RMPS is brand new to Glasgow Clyde College for this year, and we’re bring in a new Higher to broaden your progression pathways. As well as studying a world religion, you will study philosophy including topics such as ‘Are miracles real’, ‘was the universe and life created’ and study moral issues such as 'war, and alternatives to war', 'weapons of mass destruction', 'organ donation' and end of life moral questions such as 'assisted dying'.

Higher History covers a vast range of topics from Scottish, British and World History including the study around both World War One and World War Two covering social and political issues in Scotland, Britain and Europe.

Higher English equips students with valuable skills applicable across various disciplines and in everyday life, fostering a greater appreciation for literature while providing the tools to articulate ideas effectively. Through the exploration of different texts, the course cultivates critical thinking, communication and literary appreciation whilst sharpening your analytical and writing skills.

At Langside, there may also be the opportunity to study National 5 Applications of Maths, Higher Maths or Higher Human Biology, as an additional subject, but places are limited.
