Many of HEFCE's functions will be continued by the Office for Students, the new regulator of higher education in England, and Research England, the new council within UK Research and Innovation.

The HEFCE domain - - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.

The centre will allow the college to fill the skills needs of employers in the digital and hi-tech sectors. These employers provide jobs for local students, including at higher levels, through delivery of foundation and honours degrees alongside higher and degree apprenticeships. 

The building layout will mirror a production business environment, with zones for:

  • manufacturing and production, including workshops and studios
  • design and technical, including design suites
  • encouraging and supporting employer collaboration with students
  • more traditional activities, such as lecture theatres.
