We'll also be looking at the importance of education and striving to achieve - and what a thrill it can be to #bethefirst

ARU Peterborough is a new £30m university for Peterborough. It's set to open its doors to 2,000 students in 2022, with an ambition to offer university courses for up to 12,500 by 2030.

It will provide a practical solution to the problem of low employment and skills levels across Peterborough, aiming to boost the skills and employability of students.

And there was also recently good news from the chancellor in the shape of a successful £20m bid to central government for a Living Lab, which will combine additional teaching facilities at the campus,with the development of a new university quarter cultural hub within a second building at ARU Peterborough.

The Living Lab will be managed by the university, and is expected to combine learning with an interactive public science facility. It is hoped that this would help the city centre become a more attractive destination for residents, businesses and visitors.
