About Us

Peterborough Regional College, established in 1946 as Peterborough Technical College, is a major college of further and higher education in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. It is currently ranked in the top five per cent of colleges in the United Kingdom.[1] A £120 million development will see the college move into new buildings on the site of its existing campus by 2012. Peterborough Regional College now welcomes through its gates around 3,500 full time and 12,000 part time students, encompassing the widest range of courses in the Greater Peterborough area. The College has long experience of providing full and part time courses, with a degree programme being started in 1993. The College offers a range of qualifications including GCSEs, Ordinary and Higher National Diplomas, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, City & Guilds, NVQs and professional qualifications.[8] The College also offers courses for international students, including IELTS English language proficiency testing. Computing courses for those trying to get back into employment or wishing to update skills, together with a range of literacy and numeracy classes, were previously run from the Corn Exchange Learning Centre in the city centre.[9] The College now provides similar courses to that of the Corn Exchance in the City Learning Centre. The Media Centre also moved from Hightrees, adjacent to the main site on Eastfield Road, to purpose-built premises on Broadway with industry standard facilities.
