The most exciting project the College is currently working on, in order to enhance Newbury and West Berkshire, is the establishment of the University Centre Newbury.
The UCN will be housed in a new purpose-built centre on the Newbury College campus, as a partnership of employers, training providers and universities. The Centre will utilise advanced digital technologies to support learning and will be the first new building in West Berkshire to be designed to the ‘zero carbon’ standard.
The University Centre will welcome its first learners in September 2020, focusing on the key higher-skills needs of the local economy.
