College to University – Study Degrees in Worksop and Retford
The journey from college to university is a lot more accessible than you’d think and it’s available to you right on your doorstep!
University Centre Rotherham (UCR) is a university that is part of the RNN Group and provides affordable degrees across South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire (including at our sites Worksop and Retford!).
In UCR’s brand new prospectus you can find out how you can study degrees locally- and it’s out now!
Degrees on your doorstep
UCR’s prospectus is packed with plenty of key information, such as the benefits of studying locally, the courses on offer, the excellent employment opportunities, the financial support available and much more!
At UCR you’ll get a great deal, as their tuition fees range from £3,000 to £7,000 per year (average university fees are £9,000 per year), allowing you to gain cost-effective higher-level qualifications on your doorstep.
Want to earn a higher-degree qualification with zero debt? UCR also offers Higher Degree Apprenticeships in Healthcare (taught right here in Worksop) and Business Management.
So, let’s take a look at what courses UCR offers:
- Accounting, Business and Management
- Animal Management
- Arts and Graphics
- Caring Professions (Courses available at North Notts College, The Bridge Skills Hub)
- Computing and Digital
- Hair and beauty (Courses available at North Notts College, Retford Campus)
- Media, Moving Image and Photography
University is a great environment for you to gain the skills and knowledge you need for your future career, and with UCR’s degrees and higher level qualifications being accredited by partner universities such as Sheffield Hallam University and University of Huddersfield, why not choose university life?
As a graduate, over your working life you could be on average £115,000* better off than someone who hasn’t studied a higher-level course. But don’t just take our word for it – the brand new UCR prospectus is also filled with information from current students, where you’ll hear about their learning experiences in the handy “What our students say” section.
In the prospectus, you can also read more in-depth about the specific courses on offer at North Notts College and the brand new Bridge Skills Hub in Worksop, such as;
