Why UA92
Entry Criteria
Apply to UA92

Degrees awarded by a top 10 university

Studying  with UA92 gives you the best of all worlds. A new type of programme, a  modern approach to the University experience, aligned to the needs of  industry and awarded by Lancaster University.  Lancaster, awarded University of the year in 2018, ranked consistently  in the UK top 10 and having achieved the TEF Gold standard in teaching  has turned its considerable expertise to developing our programmes. You  can be assured of the quality of your degree and its recognition  worldwide.

International students attending UA92 will be sponsored by Lancaster University under its Tier 4 sponsorship licence.

Study in Manchester, the best of sport and culture

We love Manchester!  Our Manchester location - which is close to sports, entertainment,  shopping and accommodation means that you will have fantastic  opportunities for work and play. Excellent transport links ensure that  you are a short tram ride from the vibrant Manchester city centre and  just 10 minutes from Manchester International Airport.

Programmes designed with our Industry partners

Our Industry Partners,  such as Microsoft and KPMG, have been sitting around the table with our  academics designing our programmes. They aren’t just talking either.  Many of our partners will be based on campus, giving you the opportunity  to be able to interact with them directly. They will deliver the work  experiences, job shadowing, internships and projects included in your  programme. These will give you real insight to a range of companies and  industries. Having experience of different work environments will give  you opportunities to develop resilience and a broad understanding of the  work environment, so that you can adapt and perform in whatever career  you pursue. That means you will deliver real value to prospective  employers from your first day.

A new type of degree model

At  UA92, our  degrees don’t just give you work experience or internships,  they also  deliver personal and professional development through a  series of cross  disciplinary, compulsory modules. These are called the Target Talent Curriculum (TTC).   So, you will work in multidisciplinary teams with students from across   all of our degrees. This is designed to more closely simulate the work   environment. This is entirely unique and no other University in the UK   offers this. Your academic subjects will be taught separate to the TTC   modules. In all your studies, you will be taught by academics who are   passionate about teaching and preparing students for the world of work.

Opportunities for Student Pioneers

As   a new University, UA92 is looking for student pioneers. Students who   want to be part of the development of a new University. We need  students  to build clubs, societies and sports teams. What a fantastic   opportunity! Come and be part of our exciting journey. We look forward   to welcoming you to UA92.

We will treat all students individually, looking at your application as a whole, giving careful consideration to your achievements - both educational and personal - predicted grades, statement and any potential work or volunteer experience.

We accept qualifications from all over the world.

If you can’t see your country in the list below please contact us and we will be happy to help.


At UA92, we think you are more than just your academic criteria. That’s why, in some cases, we like to interview our applicants. We want to get to know you better and make sure that UA92 is the right fit for you. 

After we have done an initial assessment of your application we will let you know if we would like to interview you.
