Writtle College is celebrating having been awarded University College status and will now be changing its name to ’Writtle University College’ from August, 2016.

 

Located near Chelmsford, Writtle has a long history of providing education related to the land, environment, animals, design and sport.

 

This milestone now allows Writtle to provide their own degree courses from September 2017, instead of University of Essex validated degrees.

 

Education

 

Dr Stephen Waite, principal of Writtle said the new status will ’further enhance the profile of education within the region’.

 

He said: "This is a magnificent achievement and I am absolutely delighted with the outcome.

 

"It represents the successful culmination of a long arduous process that has involved the efforts of many colleagues.

 

"This recognition reflects our ambition as a high-quality provider of further and higher education."

 

Milestone

 

This news is the second milestone in a year for the University College, as it was granted ’Taught Degree Awarding Powers’ in March 2015.

 

Dr Waite continued: "“We are proud to offer a unique learning experience for our students and have invested in facilities to ensure we provide courses that are relevant to a modern and changing world.

 

"The demand for and importance of skilled graduates within the sector is continually on the rise and this is closely linked to current topics such as the population growth, the pressures of feeding our planet and ensuring it has a sustainable future.

 

"That is one of the key messages we aim to promote to students and their parents.”
