University Centre Peterborough
University Centre Peterborough represents the single most important development in providing Higher Education in Peterborough’s history. The University Centre offers a broad portfolio of courses covering a range of subject areas and we are rapidly developing specialisms in a number of key areas. University Centre Peterborough (UCP) was formed in 2007 and is a joint venture between Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and Peterborough Regional College (PRC). University Centre Peterborough opened its purpose built £9 million facility in November 2009 on the campus of PRC. The joint venture agreement outlines the responsibilities of both parties for managing academic standards.
While the Anglia Ruskin University Senate has the ultimate responsibility for standards through its Quality Enhancement and Standards Committee, the Centre is responsible for managing the quality and delivery of teaching, learning and assessment in line with academic regulations and procedures. The joint venture is overseen at a strategic level by a Board of Directors made up by ARU, PRC and an independent chair.
