International Business

"Studying at the University of Central Lancashire was a life changing experience! I cannot believe that three years passed so quickly and my studies at UCLan are over. Thinking about the things I did here and looking at the pictures I took, makes me feel more than just happy about my decision to study at UCLan. Before coming here I did not know what to expect from Preston and UCLan, but I was pleasantly surprised. Preston is a nice, safe and friendly place to stay. It is full of shops, cultural and leisure facilities, in other words everything you need is at one place. The campus is close to the city centre and what I like the most about it is that it so green and compact!

The university itself is very modern and international. I have met so many different people and made lifelong friends from all around the world. The teaching here is of the highest academic standard and tutors are always willing to help. I’ve been studying International Business and my studies were based on real business insight, which made my time spent here more interesting and valuable. One of the examples could be a trip to China which gave an opportunity to see things I thought I knew in a different light and from a different angle, including business perspectives in one of the fastest growing economies. As university has many partners around the world I decided to use this opportunity and spend a semester in Spain. This was another great experience, which not only helped to improve my confidence and learn another language but it also gave a great chance to stand out of a crowd and improve my employability both in the UK and abroad.

Finally and once again, it was the best three years of my life and I am really happy I had this chance to immerse myself in a new culture and learn more about UK."
