Course Moves 2018

Course Moves 2018

As part of the College’s ongoing Estates strategy, this summer the college has the opportunity to improve the learner experience and outcomes by moving courses to different sites.

We want our students to learn in the best facilities possible, which is why we announced plans in 2017 to build a new £58million City Centre campus.

Our strategic plan is to have a hub and spoke model harmonising curriculum together and beginning the process of disposal of our out dated sites.

By 2020 we will have two modern, purpose-built flagship campuses one in the City and one in the North (Basford).

As a consequence we will reduce the retained estate which is no longer fit for purpose.

This will also improve the experience and outcomes of students at College allowing them to be part of a bigger and more vibrant student community.
