Welcome to University Campus Oldham (UCO), the Higher Education faculty of Oldham College, and thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will be able to familiarise yourself with the degree level courses on offer here in partnership with UCLan, University of Huddersfield, Sheffield Hallam University and The Open University.

When UCO was first set up just over a decade ago, the ambition was simple – to develop highly skilled graduates who would make their mark in the town and beyond. This work continues.

We still want to see more Oldham and Greater Manchester people make the move into Higher Education with us. We feel the opportunities here are excellent and we have the right academic and support services in place to help you succeed.

Please do look over the website, give us a call, or visit us to discuss your future.
