University applications are on the rise again and even more so for University Centre Peterborough (UCP).
UCAS reported in January that there has been a 3.5% increase in the number of applications to institutions across the UK compared to the same point last year. University Centre Peterborough has exceeded this statistic with a 28% increase in their application numbers so far.
With UCP offering competitive fees of £6,500, it’s not just local students who are attracted to the smaller campus in Peterborough.
Students transferring from larger universities have proved that the size of the campus isn’t everything. UCP prides itself on offering the students that personal touch to their studies with one-to-one support readily available.
Liz Knight, Academic Director of UCP, says “The quality of delivery and our competitive fees mean UCP is becoming more popular with local students and those within a 40 mile radius. We are also cementing relationships with local employers so that we can offer good progression routes into work. Employability is one of our key objectives.”
She went on to add “UCP listens to its learners and we have responded to requests for more social and extra curriculum activities which has resulted in a wide range of societies, trips and guest lectures. I can say with confidence that UCP does place students at the heart of the system.”
The local University Centre offers a broad range of courses from business management to criminology, English literature to public services and journalism to archaeology to name but a few.
