Barnsley College University Centre is proud to work in partnership with some of the leading academic institutions in the country. Through these partners we are able to offer a range of courses. For a complete list of all our Higher Education courses please visit our Higher Education landing page.
We are currently working with the following institutions:
University of Hull
The University of Hull was founded in 1927 – originally as University College Hull. The foundation stone was laid the following year by the Duke of York and the University opened for business with 39 students and 14 ‘one-person’ departments. The University now has more than 16,000 students and around 2,500 employees, including more than 1,000 academic staff. Hull’s Royal Charter says the University’s mission is to “…advance education, scholarship, knowledge and understanding by teaching and research, for the benefit of individuals and society at large”. The University of Hull is committed to providing our students with top-class facilities and an ideal environment in which to live and learn, and are currently undergoing a £300-million project to dramatically improve buildings and facilities.
