University Academy 92
Removing Barriers To Learning
Sync’s partnership with University Academy 92 (UA92), a higher education institution cofounded by former professional footballers dubbed the ‘Class of ‘92’ and Lancaster University in 2017, aims to provide essential equipment and improve access to Apple devices within the university’s dedicated IT suites.
The partnership plays a crucial role in UA92’s push for greater digitisation and overall aim to make higher education accessible to every student, no matter their background. Over 800 students from the local area and across the globe now attend UA92 to study sport, media, digital and business courses, each of which will be able to access these essential devices on campus.
As an Apple Authorised Education Specialist, Sync not only supports in the procurement of technology, but will work closely with UA92 to ensure the tech provided is being used effectively by teachers and students to optimise performance and productivity.
Since the start of the partnership in March of 2022, Sync has provided over 100 M1 Mac Mini devices throughout the university’s IT suite, providing access to premium technology for every student. Other devices integrated into the university’s curriculum include the Studio Display, MacBook Pro 13”, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Pencil.
Director of Disruption at UA92, Aaron Saxton, added: “We believe that digital skills will be a critical part of everything moving forward, especially within education. To truly deliver a project of this scope, you really do need world-class partners and we’re incredibly excited to be collaborating with Sync to support the build of our trailblazing digital academy, supporting us with our curriculum to bring education to life”.
