Vibrant. Cultural. Friendly. Those are just a few words that describe the diverse city of Preston, located in the heart of northwest England.


Home to more than 30,000 students, Preston has been named the best city to live and work in the North West of England. Preston has also been awarded Purple Flag status, which recognizes the city’s quality entertainment that offers a safe, vibrant night out.

Located a short distance from larger cities of Manchester and Liverpool, both of which have international airports, Preston is also one of the most networked cities in the country. The railway station is just a short walk from campus, and in just two hours you can be in the bustling capital of London.
