Peter Baker

  • Studying Radiography at Salford University
  • Access to Higher Education – Health Science Professions

A great example of how it’s never too late to start studying, Peter completed an Access to Higher Education course with Hopwood Hall College to enable him to study Radiology at Salford University.

Peter had an interest in Radiology from a young age, he was always amazed by how technology such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines worked and how they can be used to identify issues and illnesses in the human body.

Having previously worked in other job roles where he wasn’t getting much job satisfaction, he decided it was time for a change. He started an Access course with Hopwood Hall College in pursuit of his interest in Radiology. He admits he found the Access course challenging at times but that he also enjoyed being on the course and learning again.

“I felt like I was part of a team with other students and tutors, together we formed a supportive community. My advice to current students is, use the support network around you, keep at it and complete your qualification, it will literally change your life”.
