My university experience

(5)·By Emaan M·Nursing· Jun 2023
During my time at the university of central Lancashire it has been a pleasurable experience. The facilities and teaching is amazing and to a high standard to ensure the best possible outicomes for the students. The help and support from different institutions such as mental health and academic writing is immaculate as it provides a safe space for students to talk about what they are struggling with. Overall this university is brilliant and I could not ask for a more better community to be part of.

Review of university

(5)·By Isabel M·Psychology· Jun 2023
I don't live in the university accommodation but when my friend studied here her dorm was really nice and spacias and the people who she were with were really easy to get on with. The course psychology is a good course and you get lots of support with essays and even areas with statistics. Everywhere in the university is always clean and everyone just gets on with there own stuff.

I can't complain about anything regarding my university so far. The standard of teaching is excellent, you can tell the staff love teaching and care about their students as they go above and beyond expectations to help. All the resources offered by the university are signposted on their website and are easy to access. No complaints

Medicine, Year 1

(5)·By Haider A·Medicine· Mar 2019
Freshers week was awesome. There were so many activities to do and I loved meeting with so many people from different cultures and backgrounds.. Accommodation is amazing. Comfortable beds and also they are close to the campus.. Everything especially the library are really good.. Mostly interactive and sometimes they teach you in small groups to help you understand content better.. Going out in the city is a great way to interact with people from many different backgrounds as there are lots of international people that come to uclan. Also people in the city are very friendly. Also very relaxing as we have a park that is huge with excellent views.. Be open to meet different types of people that you may hace never met before in your life.

My UCLan experience

(5)·By Ellie W·Nursing· Jun 2023
I undertook my undergraduate course here during Covid 19 and the university adapted their styles of teaching well. I enjoyed my time here and would definitely recommend!
I have now returned to do my non medical prescribing module and I have nothing but positive things to say! I've really enjoyed it!

Psychology / Criminology, Year 2

(5)·By Bethan L·Psychology· Jul 2021
It was amazing there was never a day where you had nothing to do, it was full of socialising, making new friends, going out and having a good time. I couldn't have asked for a better freshers experience I met so many friends that I will know for life and made so many memories that I'll cherish forever. I lived in halls of residence for my first year and second year and I can't fault the accommodation. It's very affordable pricing and the rooms are always clean and fresh and spacious enough and you are provided with your own en-suite where I stayed which is good. I always use the library and it is so useful it has a very large space with computers on around 3 floors and pod rooms where you can study on your own in a quiet area or in a group. I use the student union sometimes but not often but it is really good it even has its own bar which is good for socialising and the drinks and food are lovely. I love my course!! I study psychology, I was originally about to start university studying philosophy but had a change of heart and I'm glad I decided to go through with it. The course is so engaging even the lectures and even the 9am's are worth getting up for, it is such an interesting topic and the tutors really help guide you in the right direction. When thinking of studying in preston I didn't really think much about the city life as its only a small city. There are few clubs but the city life is still so good the clubs are always packed and good music and the drinks are pretty cheap which is good when you're a student.

Brilliant supportive university

(5)·By Brittany H·Business· Jun 2023
I really enjoyed my time at this university. I had studied at an institution elsewhere, and the support and teaching I received at UCLan was phenomenal in comparison. There was always staff who I could reach out to if I needed anything, and they seemed genuinely interested in me and wanted to help - the more you put in the more you get out. The course was kept interesting with relevant and topical modules, with coursework to be completed in a range of different ways so I didn't feel like I was constantly churning out essays. The campus has lots of different buildings but was easy enough to navigate around. Some buildings were more dated than others, but this didn't impact learning experience. The gym was brilliant and new, and I believe the library and student centre has been refreshed since I left. I can't comment on accommodation as I lived at home, and didn't make the most of social groups either due to this as I was balancing study with work. However I would not hesitate to recommend UCLan to anybody and hope to return for future studies one day.

Course review

(5)·By Jelissa D·Education / Teacher Training· Jun 2023
The lecturers and course leaders are very helpful. They are friendly and are always willing to give academic support. I always feel like I am never alone experiencing my university experience due to them. They deliver the course in different ways as they get to know us and tailor lessons to everyone's needs. They also inform us of many graduate opportunities with career fairs.

Psychology, Year 1

(5)·By Emma J·Psychology· Oct 2018
My university experience was far more than I imagine, we had a brilliant freshers week and I met some amazing people. Everyone was so friendly and willing to help me. Always advice and support their even as little as I got lost in the city didn't know were I was going and someone from the Uni helped me and walked me to my building for my lecture to make sure I was safe. University of Central Lancashire go above and behond to help the student and make sure they are safe. Love it
