APR 18 - MK:U A New University for Milton Keynes


APRIL 2018

Milton Keynes Council is seeking a Higher Education partner to lead the establishment of MK:U, a new technology university for Milton Keynes.  

 The role of the new university will be fundamental to achieving the new long-term vision of Milton Keynes set out by the MK Futures 2050 Commission in their report “Making a Great City Greater”.  This envisages the city growing to at least 400,000 people by 2050 at the heart of the knowledge-intensive innovation corridor between Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Oxford.

 A new university offers the chance to establish a ground-breaking new facility, that can be a truly 21st century institution helping students to develop skills and knowledge that address the needs of local, national and international business.  

 We are now inviting Higher Education institutions who would like to be considered as a partner in driving forward this project, to submit a bid as part of an Invitation to Tender process.  Read further for more information on the background to the MK:U proposition and how the concept has developed so far, or go to ProContract to read the Tender Documentation.
