Autonomous University of Lancaster
Welcome to the Wiki of AUL - the Autonomous University of Lancaster, which is kindly hosted by the Knowledge Lab. The Aim of AUL is to help people from Lancaster to educate themselves. AUL does not have any hierarchy! If you like to participate in any activity of AUL, just join! Don't hesitate to use the AUL banner to carry out projects for you and your friends. More about this you can find at the pages on the history and philosophy of AUL and about organisational questions.
