When University Academy 92 (UA92) received a grant to build a new Digital Academy at its Old Trafford campus in Manchester, the University approached Igloo Vision looking to build an immersive learning space which could match UA92's ambition to provide groundbreaking, industry-relevant education that is accessible to all.
Founded by Manchester United’s Class of 92 and Lancaster University, UA92 offers a range of degree programmes, apprenticeships and skills bootcamps. All courses are developed in close dialogue with UA92’s 70 industry partners, including Microsoft, THG, TalkTalk, Man United and KPMG.
We were so impressed with all the ways that UA92 uses its immersive classroom to educate students and work with industry partners to close the digital skills gap in the North West, we wrote an in-depth case study to capture everything going on there.
