Learning in Your Library Leads to Success

External Libraries

Colleges–University of Leicester Network (CULN)

Comprising 20 Further Education Colleges and Sixth Form Colleges, and two Higher Education Institutions across the East and West Midlands, the Colleges-University of Leicester Network (CULN) exists to optimise collaboration between Further and Higher Education Institutions for the benefit of staff and learners.

What does CULN do?

Fosters a cooperative relationship between its members, promoting greater collaboration, particularly in terms of widening access to higher education.

Provides a network for sharing information about lifelong learning and other opportunities, enabling staff to work together in their respective fields.

Creates further links with businesses and local communities, in order to promote fair access and progression to HE and FE, and assists in developing a regional lifelong learning network.

This partnership means that students are able to use other libraries for study purposes.

If you are interested in using another Further Education or University Library, perhaps because you live locally, please come and ask at the library desk. We will be able to arrange a letter of introduction for you.
