University Centre Rotherham (UCR) is a brand new campus dedicated to our degrees and professional training qualifications, providing a state-of-the-art teaching facility in the heart of Rotherham. The facility is currently under construction, and is due for completion in autumn 2018.
Our degrees and professional training courses are designed in collaboration with employers, accrediting universities and awarding bodies, ensuring that we are offering provision suited to the local economy, and working towards narrowing the current skills gap in Rotherham and Bassetlaw.
17.4% of the population in Rotherham and Bassetlaw have a Level 4 qualification or higher, compared to the national percentage of 27.4%. University Centre Rotherham will play a vital role in closing this gap, increasing access to higher-level skills.
It is our objective to raise aspirations, offer local access the higher level learning and skills, and provide an opportunity for businesses and employers to upskill their workforces locally, working with us to develop the provision for the future to support our local economy.
