Work is due to begin today on Weaponness Coach Park on Scarborough’s new £14 million university.

The initial intake is studying a range of courses including undergraduate degrees in Business, Law, and Childhood Development and Learning, with more to follow on Higher Education access programmes at the end of September.

Additional new starters will enrol in November and January due to multiple entry points available throughout the academic year.

Lessons are being taught in designated teaching rooms at Scarborough Spa in South Bay and Woodend Creative Workspace in The Crescent, ahead of the new £14 million campus being built on the Weaponness site for the next academic year.

Twelve new employees, including academic and support staff, are already in post with more due to be recruited to the team based at Woodend Creative Workspace as part of the planned gradual growth of staff and students throughout this year.
