Our educational ethos, which brought life-changing learning to local people all those years ago, remains at the heart of our mission. Through the combination of academic excellence and real-world teaching, we inspire people to transform their lives by seizing opportunities and achieving things they never thought possible.
Our main campus is based in Preston, with others located in Burnley (East Lancashire), Westlakes (West Cumbria) and Cyprus. Internationally we now enrol students from more than 100 countries and have partnerships with 125 institutions from across the globe. We are ranked in the top 6.5 percent of universities worldwide and we hold the maximum 5 QS stars for the quality of our teaching (2020-21 Centre for World University Rankings)
As well as beaches, sunsets and selfies, studying abroad will have lifelong benefits in your personal and professional life:
The good news is that some courses allow you to study in year 2 of your degree. You will study modules that you would normally study in Year 2 of your degree, therefore the length of time it takes to complete your degree programme will not be impacted upon.
Some of our courses are not compatible with those in other countries, but students instead have the option to add a year to their degree and study modules that complement the course they currently undertaking at UCLan.
