A university in Peterborough by ………. 2022?

So what’s this about?

Well you know that issue, that many people think is an urban myth, about Peterborough getting what most describe as a “proper” university? Well, according to the Principle of Peterborough Regional College, the earliest we can expect to see one is 2022.

Have a listen to the interview below and then let me know your thoughts below please!

What does Darren think?

I think a university would be a great thing for the city, but I am worried that a Tory administration who cannot even provide homes and housing for the present population, will be incapable of providing the accommodation, that will be required with a planned student population of 12,500!

Don’t get me wrong, as a Lib Dem, I’m a HUGE fan of education!

I’m simply mindful, that if this type of thing is overseen by the inept Conservatives, check out the state of SATS results, PFI projects, Academies in the city etc (not forgetting staff morale), the idea that they can provide a shiny new Uni, is simply unrealistic.
