Students at a college in Sheffield have a better chance of landing a place at university after a new partnership was signed.

Leaders at Longley Park Sixth Form College, in Longley, have signed an official partnership with the University of Bradford.

The partnership recognises the work done between the two institutions and is a commitment from the university to work closely with the college, providing a bespoke programme of activities throughout the year.

Caroline Priestley, UK and EU recruitment officer at the University of Bradford said; "The University of Bradford has been working with staff and students from Longley Park Sixth Form College for several years now and is delighted to be able to formalise the partnership.

"It means that we can build on our support to students with their progression to higher education.

"We are looking forward to working together and watching more Longley Park students graduate in the future."

College principal, Mo Nisbet said; “I am delighted that the college now has a formal partnership with the University of Bradford.

"We strive to give students the very best progression opportunities and support students in making the right choice for their career aspirations.

"This partnership will give students a chance to work with the University and further explore what they have to offer.”

In 2016, students from the college went on to study a variety of degree courses at the University of Bradford, including paramedic science, biomedical science, diagnostic radiography and social work.
