“A great place to be”

published 12/05/2002

ProNice, modern uni in a nice area

Cons...errm... none spring to mind

I am a 21 year old at the end of my first year at UCLAN and I have enjoyed it thoroughly. I had offers from other universities, but after attending 2 open days, I decided UCLAN was the place for me. UCLAN is an ex-polytechinic, but don't let that put you off - ex polys don't have the bad...

“UCLAN”

published 16/12/2003

ProClose to town, getting a new union

ConsSome courses aren't great

I'm now in my second year here at the University of Central Lancashire studying Journalism, one of the uni's best courses. UCLAN was the only uni I applied to, because I knew it was the best in the country for my course. I received quite a high offer for Journalism so I applied for combined...

ProGood university in the north

ConsSmall campus and small city

Okay, so it's that time of year again when new students are eagerly anticipating starting university and making next step towards adulthood, it's a daunting time, many students haven't lived on their own for the first time, are going to places of the country that they've never lived in before and...

“Law at UCLAN”

published 10/01/2009

ProLow grades to get in :D

ConsAlot of course work!

My experience of UCLAN wasn't as good as some of the others here, but that's probably because of my choice of course. UCLAN has a good reputation when it comes to Art and Computing, but not when it comes to Science, or my subject, Law. I've just finished my degree, and although it did get easier...

“University Life”

Procheap cheap prices

Consits wet

I am currently on the second year of my Web and Multimedia course. So far I have enjoyed all most every second of my time in Preston. Not the biggest town in the country but there is definatly a lot to do on a night out. There seem to be a countless number of pubs catering for students, we seem...

ProWide range of courses, great campus

ConsPreston's pubs may be too much of a distraction fr...

Having spent three brilliant years as a student at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN), I can recommend it as a great place to study on the basis of the courses it offers, its student accommodation, its campus and the night life in Preston, the town where the UCLAN is based. Firstly, the...

ProFriendly, informal staff

ConsExpensive on-campus catering outlets

After finishing college, I chose to go to this University because it was near to my home and I did not wish to have to move away. I am now a second year student and I have really enjoyed my time here. I have found the staff to be informal, helpful and easily approachable. It is a nice, friendly...

Progreat courses

Consfew

The university of central Lancashire is an excellent place to study, I rate it well on almost all points. The night life is excellent and the prices are cheap, the cost of living is reasonably low. The courses are pretty well structured with only a few small problems occasionally, there are some...
