UNIVERSITY OF BEDFORDSHIRE, LUTON CAMPUS
Sixteen years after the foundation of the University of Bedfordshire, the educational centre created its first educational root in Luton by the name of Luton Modern School in 1908. The school’s origin dates to 1900 or perhaps it was there before that. This affiliation opened doors for the University of Bedfordshire to expand its educational influence over Bedfordshire. With instant success, University of Bedfordshire opened the first Technical Institute in 1937. The locals of Bedfordshire were finally turning their way to Luton for study and employment. It became Luton College of Technology in 1958.
The Technical Institute completed its tenure until 1976 when it was merged with Putteridge Bury College of Education to become Luton College of Higher Education. In 1993, it received the university status and further known as University of Bedfordshire, Luton Campus.
In 2006, the university went for further affiliations with De Montfort University’s Bedford Campus by order of Privy Council; this alliance completed the University of Bedfordshire’s campus sibling. Today Luton Campus offers the study of Social Sciences, Law, Computing, Media, Business, Psychology, Art and Design.
