Hello guest
Your basket is empty
A group of old students have embarked on a mission to have their 3 year course recognised by UOB with the award of an Honorary degree........ 
At least 3 other P.E. Colleges have gone down this route and awarded old students an honorary degree. 
We believe that such a rigorous course, the high academic expectations, the attention given to teaching as well as personal development should be celebrated. 
There will be more information in the old students report, due to go out in March. 
It would be helpful at this stage if individuals from other cohorts could join us in lobbying the university. 
If you would like more information or feel you could help please complete the form below and we will pass your details onto Jackie Gregory (Winfield).

Many Thanks

I would like to register my interest for the award of an honorary degree.
I started my teaching career teaching P.E. and quickly realised that a degree was necessary to move forward in this profession. I obtained a B.A. (hons) in English and went onto become Head of Faculty and later Assistant Head as well as twice serving as acting Deputy Head. A degree from Bedford in 1974 would have been wonderful.
Thank you to those who have lobbied for this honorary degree status; it must have taken a lot of time, effort and determination - all characteristics of a B.C.P.E. Student.
Thank you.

I was a student at Bedford College of Physical Education between 1975-1978, does this mean I am also entitled to receive an honorary degree? I retired in 2021 after 43 years of PE teaching.

It was such a rigorous course but at the same time so enjoyable and varied. Making friends for life was very much part of my happy memories.
Thank you
Judy
