The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston was founded in 1828 as the Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge. ‘Ex solo ad solem’, or in translation, ‘From the Earth to the Sun’, has been its motto ever since – helping people from all walks of life to make the most of their potential is what UCLan’s all about. From state-of-the-art facilities and world class teaching and support to help undergraduate students succeed, to providing world-leading Astrophysics researchers with the opportunity to work with NASA and photograph the Sun, UCLan has it all.
UCLan has evolved over the years to become a world class institution, recognised with its inclusion in the 2010 QS World Rankings – the first Modern University in the UK to gain this status. The University has a global reach and in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) all 16 of the subject areas we submitted were recognised as demonstrating elements of world-leading research. Applied research is critical to the development of UCLan and the REF results show the real differences the University’s research is making to the economy and communities regionally, nationally and internationally. So whether it’s devising a blood test to detect brain tumours, uncovering a potential cause of Alzheimer’s or helping the world’s poor to gain access to vital medicines, UCLan’s research is changing lives.
Amongst its programme portfolio of some 500 undergraduate and 200+ postgraduate courses, UCLan has been at the forefront of developing degrees in the emerging disciplines of Journalism, Fashion, Forensics and Sports Science. The range of excellence extends to include the likes of Pharmacy, Architecture, Astrophysics and the first new School of Dentistry to be launched in the UK in more than a century.
The University aims to create the perfect blend of knowledge, practical experience and relevance to equip its graduates with the confidence and skills they need to get ahead in the world of work. Not only are employability skills embedded into every degree course, but the sector-defining ‘futures’ careers and employability service offers help and advice, courses and work experience opportunities to help UCLan graduates’ CVs stand out from the pack. Capital investment in outstanding facilities and a dedicated student support service, The <i>, combined to help UCLan be awarded the accolade ‘Times Higher Top Modern University for Student Experience 2010’.
A truly global institution, UCLan’s student body includes 120 nationalities; its partnership network extends to 125 countries in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australasia; it runs 100+ student exchange programmes; and it has a new campus in Cyprus. The University encourages and nurtures originality, from its ground-breaking Energy Management partnership with BAE Systems to its launch of the world’s first International Fashion Institute and the UK’s first MBA in Fashion, to its proud record of student business start-ups – a sector-leading 60 per cent of which are still thriving after three years.
With a world class academic reputation firmly rooted in relevance, UCLan is focused on a future of providing innovative thinking – for the real world.
