The University of Central Lancashire (abbreviated UCLan) is a public university based in Preston, Lancashire, England. In 1992 it was granted university status by the Privy Council.

UCLan’s main campus is a ten minute walk from Preston city centre, with other campuses located in Lancashire and Cumbria, and an overseas one in Cyprus which opened in 2012 – the first British university in the country to do so.

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is one of the UK’s largest universities with a student and staff community approaching 38,000. Internationally UCLan has academic partners in all regions of the globe and it is on a world stage that the first class quality of its education was first recognised.

Amongst the University’s programme portfolio of some 230 undergraduates and nearly 200 postgraduate courses, UCLan has been at the forefront of developing degrees in emerging disciplines such as fashion and forensic science, of which it is the largest higher education provider in the world, to more recent additions such as dentistry and now undergraduate medicine, which is being delivered in the UK’s newest Medical School.

 

High among UCLan’s priorities are maximising employability for students, furnishing them with relevant skills and developing course content to meet the needs of business. It offers business incubation facilities and training for students after graduation. In addition to its focus on practical skills, the university also scores highly for its research, with all 16 of its subject areas judged to be ‘world leading’ in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

 UCLan has a thriving, vibrant atmosphere. Beyond the campus, Preston is a small and compact city, easy to navigate and with excellent transport links to the rest of the UK. On its doorstep is the picturesque countryside of the Ribble Valley, the Trough of Bowland and the Southern Lakes.
