Founded in 1894 as a cheese-making school, Myerscough College and University Centre has grown to become one of the UK’s largest providers of specialist education and training for land-based and sports industries. It offers undergraduate courses in over 20 different subject areas, including Agriculture, Animal Studies, Equine Studies, Horticulture, Motorsports, and Sports Studies.
Around 6000 students are enrolled at the college, around 2000 of which are part-time students, and around 1000 of which study for Higher Education qualifications. The college is an Associate School of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), one of the largest and most dynamic universities in the UK, and Myerscough students can benefit from having access to UCLan’s wide range of student facilities and support.
The college itself has recently invested £30 million on campus enhancements, including a Veterinary Nursing Centre, Food and Farming Innovation and Technology Centre, and an Animal Studies complex - all housing state-of-the-art learning and research facilities. This is all based on the college’s ever-growing, expansive parkland campus, which is based six miles outside of Preston City Centre.
The College has a strong QAA report, with two commendations and 10 areas of good practice, and has achieved a prestigious TEF GOLD award, an assessment that highlights excellence in teaching and learning across higher education providers in the UK.
