UA92 kick off in style

University Academy 92 (UA92) welcomed the first of its prospective students to its inaugural Open Day at Lancashire Cricket Club recently.

Guests at the Emirates Old Trafford event heard from co-founders Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs on how their education as part of the Class of 92 inspired them to want to launch the new university academy and pass on the winning philosophy. Academic partners Lancaster University, who will accredit the UA92 degrees, spoke about how they were working with the Class of 92 to translate their vision into the innovative Target Talent curriculum, which focuses not just on academic excellence but on character development as an integral part of the programmes UA92 will offer.

A large exhibition showcased UA92’s partners, such as founding partner Microsoft, as well as KPMG, Lancashire Cricket Club and INSIGHT. Commenting on the day, co-founder Gary Neville said; “I feel incredibly proud that we have arrived at the stage where we are able to host our very first Open Day. Three years ago when we started this project this day seemed a very long way away, but now we are here and able to talk to potential UA92 students, it suddenly feels very real and that is very exciting.”

Interim UA92 Principal Professor Simon Guy added, “To be here on the inaugural UA92 Open Day is a significant moment in the development of this new university academy. The vision for UA92 is a fresh, innovative approach to higher education and I firmly believe that UA92 can, and will, prove game-changing not just for the sector, but also for the students that come and study with us. The philosophy of the Class of 92, coupled with the academic rigour of Lancaster University, make for a very exciting proposition and I’m delighted to be part of the team offering prospective students their first taste of the UA92 experience.”
