Petroc is also hoping to offer full time BA programmes from September.

PETROC has been awarded a further 40 full time Higher Education places by the University of Plymouth.

The places for September 2013 were allocated due to the college’s outstanding success rates on its foundation degree programmes.

“Our degree courses are becoming more and more popular year on year, thanks to the high quality of teaching and the exceptional value for money,” said Craig Litster, Petroc’s Higher Education co-ordinator.

“We have a proven track record for results – a staggering 65 per cent of our students who go on to do their final year at Plymouth University achieve a First or a 2:1.

The college, which is still recruiting for this September, will be freezing its tuition fees at the 2012 level of £5,500 for a full time degree.
