University-Level Prospectus | ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION


Across our campuses in North and Mid Devon, we offer Access to Higher Education Diplomas in Art & Design; Humanities, Education & Social Work; Nursing, Midwifery & Medical Science; Science; and Teaching (Humanities or Science route).


These courses are specifically designed for learners aged 19 or over, who wish to take a university-level course but don’t have the normal entrance requirements for Higher Education. They are recognised by universities and other Higher Education institutions as an alternative to standard A-level entry.


There are many reasons why this route may suit you; you may be a student who has completed some qualifications and can show the right level of skill and maturity for this programme, or you may be a mature applicant who has not studied A-levels but possesses a wealth of experience in your chosen field. The courses provide a broad programme of study that includes core modules and more specialist modules that will enable you to progress.


Year after year, our students secure places at the country’s leading universities on courses such as midwifery, nursing, psychology, paramedic science, sport & exercise science, optometry and many more.


Applicants aged 19 years or over who take out the Advanced Learner Loan do not need to pay anything upfront. If you complete your Access Diploma and then go on to complete a course in Higher Education, the remaining balance of your Advanced Learner Loan, including any interest on it, will be written off.


You can get full information from Student Finance England. Alternatively, you can contact our Advice & Guidance Centre for advice and information on fees on 01271 852422/01884 235330 or visit www.petroc.ac.uk/advanced-loans.


"Going back to college, having left secondary school 18 years prior and now a single parent, seemed such a daunting, and almost impossible thing to achieve. I've received so much help and support every step of the way, not only from the course tutors but from literally all members of staff at the college that I came into contact with, from student services to the library staff and everyone in between. Everyone was incredible and without them I would not have been able to get through the course and realise my true potential.


Getting back into learning has been so much easier than I'd ever thought it would be, I've genuinely enjoyed studying the different subjects, not least due to the style of teaching and different level of respect there is in an adult learner setting.


I've made some lifelong friends from this course and am now on the path to starting university and gaining a career in something I enjoy, rather than just working in dead end jobs in order to pay the bills.


I had so many worries about whether this would be the right thing for me or if it would even be achievable after so long out of education, however, once I'd started I soon realised that actually I had nothing to lose by trying and it has been so worthwhile and rewarding.

I would recommend the course to anyone, it's opened doors for me that I never imagined were achievable at this later point in my life, and my eternal gratitude goes to everyone who made it possible and who made me believe it was possible."
