Why now?

 

This is the public launch of the project to create UA92 and the beginning of a three month period of consultation with key stakeholders.

UA92 is designed from the ground up to respond to government legislation to open up Higher Education to new and different forms of provision and to demands from businesses for graduates with enhanced workplace skills.

The partners behind UA92 are committed to engaging with all interested stakeholders so that the final proposals deliver the best possible outcomes for local people and add maximum value over and above present and planned provision.

The project has been developed to the point where it is now complete enough for us to announce it publicly.

 

––

 

We need to do this to enable us to consult with key stakeholders, which is the next stage of the project. 

 

––

 

We need to engage with the residents of Trafford and Stretford because UA92 is a key element of the new masterplan.

 

––

 

We need to engage with government and businesses as their support is vital to the shaping and eventual success of the project.  

 

––

 

We will also engage constructively with other Higher and Further Education providers in Greater Manchester and the North West.

 

–– 

 

We expect the net effect of UA92 will be to attract more students and more prosperity to Greater Manchester.

If the project develops in line with our expectations it will be another two years before the first students are admitted.
