Newbold College Partners with University of Winchester
29 March 2012 Bracknell, United Kingdom [tedNEWS] For the past few months Newbold College has spent much time preparing for institutional approval to become a partner institution of the University of Winchester. The College received such approval on Wednesday 28 March 2012 and so is now permitted to submit its Theology programmes to the University for validation.
'We are delighted that so much hard work has resulted in this recognition of what we do at Newbold College,' said Dr John Baildam, Deputy Principal, who met with the institutional approval panel in Winchester just a few days ago. 'We very much look forward to preparing our programmes for validation and to being part of the University's Institute for Theological Partnerships.' Prof. Lisa Isherwood, Director of the Institute, stated that she was 'absolutely delighted, as I know we will have a wonderful partnership that is flourishing for both parties'.
‘Partnering with the University of Winchester and now being able to present our degrees for validation is an exciting development ” said Dr Philip Brown, Principal. ‘Having our quality undergraduate and postgraduate Theology programmes validated will allow all eligible students to get a student loan to cover their tuition costs in full each year.’
The University of Winchester lies just 45 miles south-west of Newbold College in the ancient capital of England. Its roots as an education provider extend back to 1840, with university title being bestowed in 2005.
The University celebrates its Christian foundation, encouraging those living within the Christian faith, whilst also welcoming those who live within other faiths and those with no faith. It includes within its ethos such values as intellectual freedom, social justice, diversity, spirituality, individual well-being, and creativity. [tedNEWS]
