Hi Robert,

I am very keen to get a place on this course for September 2016 as a mature student. I have decided that at age 30 I finally have the ambition and drive to start higher education. I am really interested in this course as I have experience in many of the subjects that it accesses, however I am not 100% sure what I would like to study yet and don't meet the entry requirements for the full honours degrees. Eventually I would like to gain qualified teacher status to be able to teach and share my passions in the UK and around the World.

I have spent the last 10 years working overseas in the Travel and Tourism industry including setting up and running my own business before selling it after four years. I have an AVCE in Travel and Tourism but no other A level equivalent qualifications. I gained an OCR Certificate of Professional Competence in 2013 which involved independent study and two exams. I have recently had a career change into childcare and have taken short courses in both the UK and France to become a registered childminder. I speak very good French and would like to continue studying French at Plymouth University alongside Tourism, Business or International Relations (or a combination!). I also speak some German and would be keen to build on that too.

Can you let me know if I would be likely to be accepted onto the course? If so what is the procedure? Do I apply directly through UCAS? I have already sent an email to the admissions department but haven't heard anything back yet. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me.

Kind regards,

Carol

Hi Carol,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I have been in contact with the Programme Manager for Foundation Year Management, Government and Law and here is what he had to say:

"Given the level of work experience it is likely you will be accepted for UCAS point tariff, but must have GCSE English andMaths (or equivalent) equal to grade D."

I would also suggest checking out our Languages Café as well for more language opportunities.

I hope this helps you out. Don't hesitate to get back in touch should you need any more information, we will do our best to answer any questions or queries.
