Leading Burnley businesses have seen first hand the transformation work undertaken at Victoria Mill – UClan Burnley’s new site.

The University of Central Lancashire has been in Burnley for some time but recently acquired Victoria Mill, the former University Technical College building, as part of their expansion plans – they’ve stated they will have 4,000 students in Burnley by 2025.
