University-Level Prospectus | FOUNDATION DEGREES


Our foundation degrees, delivered in partnership with the University of Plymouth, are equivalent to studying for the first two years of an Honours Degree at university. They are designed in collaboration with employers and offer you the opportunity to combine academic study with the skills and attributes needed in the workplace.


When studied full-time, foundation degrees are two-year courses. Many of our courses are also offered on a part-time basis (usually three years), which can provide greater flexibility and the opportunity to carry on with work while you study. Some employers fund student fees and provide time to study where the course is considered of relevance to their business.


Petroc’s foundation degree courses are designed with built-in progression routes to Honours Degrees at the University of Plymouth and other institutions, including Petroc.


Assessment for our degrees is carried out using a variety of methods including exams and essays, practical and creative tasks, presentations, reflective journals and research and project work.


Prior to my studies, I had spent many years teaching outdoor education, working predominantly with young people with social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties. Psychology is very relevant to this area of work and whilst I had a lot of practical experience I didn’t have any formal academic qualifications to support this.


OVER 3,000 GRADUATES SINCE 2001


When I started at Petroc I had been out of education for over 20 years, so the thought of sitting in a lecture theatre with hundreds of other students was quite overwhelming. However, as we were a small group, we bonded quickly and everyone was really supportive of each other. It also meant that the lectures were much more personal and interactive. There were plenty of group discussions, opportunities for people to share their own experiences or ask questions, and lots of support from teaching staff. This really helped with my learning.


I am due to start a new job as Trainee Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner with Devon Partnership NHS Trust and as part of this post I will spend two days a week at Exeter University completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.


If you are considering studying for a degree at Petroc, I say ‘go for it’! When I first looked into this course, I had my reservations. I was unsure whether I had the academic ability to study at this level, and whether I would be able fit in studying around work and family commitments. It wasn’t always easy, but I’m so glad I did it. I’ve learnt so much, not only about the subject, but also about myself and what I can achieve."
