Community Quote

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 ... Read review

A great place to be

AdvantagesNice, modern uni in a nice area

Disadvantages...errm... none spring to mind

"...popular degree course in the university (25,000 students in the uni, 7th largest in the country I hear). You can combine pretty much any subject and you have the choice of a major/minor or joint route. Ususally you study 3 subjects in your first year and choose two to study in your 2nd and 3rd years. You may also study an elective module - some tutors will recommend a module that relates to the course, others will allow a completely free choice. Elective ..." Read review

AdvantagesClose to town, getting a new union

DisadvantagesSome courses aren't great

"...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 honours Journalism and Football and Society as my insurance choice in case I didn't get onto single honours. On the morning of A Level results day, a UCLAN welcome pack ..." Read review

A great university in the North of England

AdvantagesGood university in the north

DisadvantagesSmall campus and small city

"...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 will meet people who will become friends for life. This was something similar to my experience at the University of Central Lancashire (or UCLan for short). So what's UCLan all about? Location: UCLan ..." Read review

Reasons to study at the University of Central Lancs

AdvantagesWide range of courses, great campus

DisadvantagesPreston's pubs may be too much of a distraction from your studies because they're so close!

"...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 UCLAN campus is the complete opposite of the ‘concrete jungles’ campuses of many other universities. It’s really open and spread out, which means that you don’t feel like you’re trapped ..." Read review

University Life

Advantagescheap cheap prices

Disadvantagesits 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 to find a new one every week. Favourites include the Ship Inn, because its practically on the campus and Roper Hall. The students union is amazing and there ..." Read review
