University Centre Rotherham (UCR) is a brand new campus dedicated to offering degrees and professional training qualifications, providing a state-of-the-art teaching facility in the heart of Rotherham.

UCR is based near our Rotherham College town centre campus, on Doncaster Gate. University Centre Rotherham is part of the RNN Group, alongside Rotherham College, North Notts College, Dearne Valley College, RNN Training and a number of other subsidiary training organisations.

UCR offers a wide range of university courses including degrees, foundation degrees, higher national certificates and diplomas, and other professional courses, from Level 4 to Level 7. The courses are accredited by top universities and awarding bodies, including the University of Hull and Sheffield Hallam University.

The centre houses a range of dedicated facilities including seminar and lecture rooms, independent and group study spaces, a full-equipped library, a café and exhibition spaces.

UCR delivers teaching excellence like the other colleges within the RNN Group, which are graded silver under the Higher Education Teaching Excellence Framework, ranked equally with many universities on a scale influenced by student results and feedback.

For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS).The OfS is the new independent regulator for Higher Education in England and all Higher Education providers need to register with the OfS for their students to be eligible for student support in the 2019-20 academic year. The OfS will start publishing providers on its Register from July 2018. We have made an application to register and expect a decision by September 2018. No provider will be able to confirm whether student support is available until it has a decision from the OfS. Visit for more information.
