Site visit: Anglia Ruskin University, Peterborough (phase three)

27 March, 4-6pm, Peterborough

Following on from our successful site visit to Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), Peterborough, in November to look at phase two, we are pleased to be able to visit the university during phase three development.

Peterborough is a known higher education ‘cold spot’, where 32% of the population have degree-level qualifications, compared to a national average of 43%. It is also in the bottom 10% for skills levels nationally.

ARU Peterborough will help to address that inequality while also widening participation by attracting a diverse student population to improve social mobility and redress the skills gaps within businesses and industries across Peterborough and the region.
