University Campus St Albans (UCSA) is a joint venture between the University of Hertfordshire and Oaklands College. This is an innovative collaboration to enable people at work seeking a change of direction or to progress their careers further. UCSA is focussed on developing the skills that employers need for the future.

All degrees are developed in collaboration with the University of Hertfordshire. UCSA has created innovative pathways for people with experience to gain academic recognition for this and accelerate their studies in quite unique ways.

UCSA students study a University of Hertfordshire honours part-time degree which is delivered at both Oaklands College and the University. Courses are offered in business, leadership and management, construction and engineering .

All courses are delivered part-time, normally over weekends, day or block release. Students are usually in employment, and most have been out of education for a long time.

UCSA also works with employer groups in three core areas – construction, engineering and business – to identify future skills needs and ensure the courses delivered can meet these needs.

UCSA launched a fast-track Degree Apprenticeship in Chartered Management in October 2018. This programme is led by the University of Hertfordshire.

Further degree apprenticeships are planned for 2020/2021.
