At Preston’s College we are committed to promoting access and participation in Higher Education. All policies and plans are monitored by The Office for Students (OfS), the regulatory body for Higher Education in the UK. The OfS safeguards fair access to Higher Education by reviewing the Access and Participation Plans which set out tuition fees limits, any processes put in place for learners and any outreach work such as summer schools. You can compare plans on the OfS website.
