The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)

The University has been a leader in emerging disciplines such as Fashion and Forensic Science, as well as newer additions such as Dentistry and Aerospace Engineering.

The University has a reputation for scientific research and utilises two observatories in the UK and one in Africa in order to conduct astrophysics research with NASA, as well as being a partner in a nanotechnology research team in China. UCLan maintains a strong focus on employability, ranking in the top three in the UK for the number of graduate start-up businesses, with many degree programmes developed in collaboration with and linked to industrial partners.


The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) offers a range of support services designed to make the transition into student life as easy as possible for new students. This includes a free orientation programme and airport pickup, free English language support throughout the first year and free membership to the International Students Society.
