New College Bradford and the University of Huddersfield have signed a partnership agreement to continue to work closely together to support NCB students to progress to their planned destinations. This builds on three years of work between the college and the university to help students apply, gain offers and succeed on degree courses. This kind of work with universities is one of the key reasons why 83% of New College Bradford students progress to degrees, ranking amongst the highest rates of progression to university nationally.
As part of the agreement, the University of Huddersfield will guarantee interviews or offers to all New College Bradford students who have the potential to meet the published academic and non-academic entry requirements. The agreement reflects the excellent work that staff at the college and university have undertaken over the years, including regular university visits for students, guest speakers from university lecturers, personal statement drop-in sessions, support through Clearing and for students with special educational needs and disabilities. This level of support will develop further still following the signing of the agreement.
The agreement was signed by Stuart Nash, Principal of New College Bradford and Professor Tim Thornton, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Huddersfield.
