University Campus Oldham[edit]

University Campus Oldham, located in Oldham, Greater Manchester opened in May 2005. It offers full and part-time courses at degree, diploma, foundation degree and postgraduate level.[1]

In November 2008, the Chancellor, Professor Patrick Stewart, started a £5.5 million development to accommodate the growing body of students. The development provides specialist equipment and facilities for students on a range of courses including construction, performance, technical theatre, digital journalism, architectural technology and interior design.

Also benefiting from the investment are multimedia design, games art and digital arts practice students who now have the use of two computer suites with 40 iMacs and 10 high-end PC graphic workstations, all utilising the latest design and modelling software such as Adobe Master Suite, 3D Studio Max 2009 and Pixologic Zbrush 3.1.

The first graduation ceremony was held at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Oldham in November 2006.
