The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) was founded in 1828 as the Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge. Based in Preston, Lancashire, UCLan is one of the UK’s largest universities offering 400 undergraduate and over 200 postgraduate courses across 20 academic schools.
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.
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.
