MILTON Keynes has taken a step closer to opening a new university.
MK College has won government funding to host 150 degree places. The College is one a handful of institutions to receive new funding of this kind and only one of 65 out of more than 400 to be given this stamp of approval from the Higher Education Funding Council.
Students will now be able to study locally full and part-time for degrees in a range of subjects including Engineering, Computing and Performing Arts at the Chaffron Way campus and University Centre.
College Principal Dr Julie Mills said: “This gives the college and city a degree of independence in Higher Education, allowing us to offer worthwhile degree-level education to people. This is wonderful news and is largely due to the high quality of teaching offered by our staff.”
