Brilliant campus, superb facilities and a great location!
The campus at Myerscough’s main centre in Preston is quite simply amazing. Set in 600 hectares of open, green surroundings, Myerscough College offers all the facilities you could need for a great time – a great social life, state-of-the-art sports academies and comfortable, easy-going accommodation. We've recently invested upwards of £20 million on-campus developments, providing new sports and changing facilities, new dining facilities, an extension to our Higher Education teaching centre and dedicated Veterinary Nursing, Animal Studies, Rural Skills and Engineering centres. What’s more, you’re in easy reach of all the shopping and nightlife that nearby Preston, Lancaster and Blackpool have to offer.

If you want to relax after your College work, then you’ll find all sorts to interest you on campus. There are lots of places for you to meet up with friends in an easy-going sociable atmosphere. There are also hundreds of different organised activities, parties and theme nights, as well as our legendary highlights – the Myerscough Christmas and Summer Balls
At Myerscough College, campus life is incredibly active – especially outside working hours – so the best thing about living on site with fellow students is being close to where the action is! That’s why if you live a distance from College it’s great fun to experience life in our halls of residence, especially in your first year. It’s an easy and effortless way of meeting people, making new friends and staying in touch with what’s going on throughout the College.
For many years, a number of Myerscough students have participated in the Ohio State University exchange programme. This provides a 12-month paid work placement at one of a number of prestigious employers across the United States. Students who choose to undertake the programme normally take a year out during, or after, their degree course – similar to a ‘gap year’ – but with the benefit of supervision, support and guidance from the Ohio staff team. It’s a fantastic way to “add value” to your CV
