Doncaster College and University Centre leaders are ‘quite simply thrilled’ with a glowing report from the Quality Assurance Agency.

The college’s higher education provision, which is based at its High Melton campus, was praised for its distinct identity and ethos.

The report followed a nine month review by the QAA, which reviews and reports on how educational establishments maintain their academic standards and quality.

Principal and chief executive George Trow said: “We are quite simply thrilled with this report, which comes only weeks after Ofsted recognised Doncaster College’s ‘Outstanding’ support for students coupled with ‘a strong culture of achievement and endeavour’.

“We have a superb team in Doncaster across both sites who are clearly dedicated to ensuring that learners have the best possible experience with us.”

Maureen Sydney, Director of Higher Education, said: “I have been associated with the University Centre, Doncaster since its inception in 2002 and am proud that this report shows that the University Centre is meeting the required standard for UK higher education organisations.”

More than 1400 students studied at the University Centre on a variety of programmes during 2012/13.
