News: Not­ting­ham Col­lege secures 1.2m fund to invest in science

Img 1382 Edit

Nottingham College has been awarded a 1.2m capital grant by the Office for Students to invest in its Higher Education (HE) science provision, including a new science and innovation centre.

Plan­ning is already under­way to build the new Cen­tre, based at the College’s City Hub, and will include new lab­o­ra­to­ries and pur­pose-built high­er-lev­el tech­ni­cal facil­i­ties for sub­jects such as biol­o­gy, chem­istry, foren­sics and den­tal technologies. 

Set to open in 202223, the depart­ment, its stu­dents, and local employ­ers, will ben­e­fit from a suite of brand new indus­tri­al-grade machin­ery and equip­ment, includ­ing a bench-top NMR scan­ner, a high-per­for­mance liq­uid chro­matogram, UV, IR and Mass spec­trom­e­ters, and for Foren­sic Sci­ence, bespoke crime scene hous­es’, a blood spat­ter room and state-of-the-art fin­ger­print analy­sis equipment.

We are delight­ed to have been award­ed this fund­ing, which will enable us to invest fur­ther in our HE pro­vi­sion. The new equip­ment and facil­i­ties put us on a par with indus­try and gives our stu­dents train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties that even rivals some universities. 

Not­ting­ham Col­lege is proud of its abil­i­ty to help stu­dents from widen­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion back­grounds and adults enter HE, and now oppor­tu­ni­ties in sci­ence-based pro­grammes which, tra­di­tion­al­ly, have been beyond the reach of many. 

With this fund­ing, we can sup­port local employ­ers to fur­ther careers for new­com­ers and those already employed to achieve Lev­el 4 and 5 qual­i­fi­ca­tions to ful­fil emerg­ing job roles. Plus, it extends the poten­tial for our cur­rent Lev­el 3 stu­dents in these dis­ci­plines to learn and aspire to progress to uni­ver­si­ty-lev­els with­in the Col­lege itself. 

 — Dami­an Fidler, Not­ting­ham Col­lege Head of High­er Edu­ca­tion and International
Lab 1

With ris­ing indus­try demand for sci­en­tif­ic skills, plus increas­ing pub­lic inter­est in the world around us and how to pro­tect it for the future, choos­ing a sci­ence course can open up a mas­sive range of excit­ing career options. 

We offer a vari­ety of sci­ence cours­es, rang­ing from Lev­el 1 right through to degree-lev­el study.
