Marley Cole recalls when the University Centre Hastings (as it was then called) first opened. With ‘one lecturer Sarah Atkinson, 20 students, 3 cameras and a few other bits of kit’

 

As with any start up project, the Hastings campus had a few obstacles to overcome to become the campus it is now.

 

Mr Cole who came from working at the BBC said “ I found it very difficult working here” and that “the whole process was slow and frustrating” compared to the BBC where you could get equipment instantly.

 

Hastings a town full of high rates of unemployment and low levels of educational success, is now 14 years later a thriving community.

 

The success of Hastings is partly due to the story of higher education that started in 2001, when talks began of a new university campus to help regenerate the town.
