Partner Institutions

Study at a UCLan Partner

UCLan enjoys well-established, extensive links with partner institutions and as one of our partner students you will be in good hands and excellent company.

Each partner delivers a range of UCLan higher education (HE) courses, allowing students to study locally for their HE award. Some partnership courses enable students to begin their studies within a partner institution and complete them at UCLan, while others are delivered entirely by our partners. Partnership courses are also offered at the University and all students follow the same course, experience the same assessment, and progress to the further stages of the course in the same way.

UCLan students in partner institutions have a closely comparable experience to those studying at the University. Partnership courses have a course leader or co-ordinator based at the partner institution and at the University.

Many of the courses run in the partner institutions have opportunities to progress onto UCLan to complete your programme or to study for a higher qualification. For example you can top up a HNC/D or a foundation degree to an honours degree.

"The group we had was very small so we received help whenever we needed it. The teachers were fantastic."

Rebecca Metcalfe (FD Business, Kendal College, Graduated)

 

"The College had been recommended to me, once I looked around I felt at home.. I know that I have developed into a professional worker and my confidence has increased"

Kerry Rutherford (FD Health & Social Care, Carlisle College, Graduated)

 

 

Being a Partner student

LOCALITY

You can study at a partner institution local to you. Most of our partners are based in the North West region of England, offering an increased opportunity for students to access higher education closer to home.

CAMPUS SIZE

You may feel that going to University means studying on a large campus and this can be daunting for some students. Studying at one of our partner institutions will be on a small, yet welcoming campus, often with smaller class sizes.

FLEXIBILITY

Courses are available at all levels – from certificates to HNDs and foundation degrees and even some full honours degrees. For many of our courses you can study full or part time to enable you to fit your course around your lifestyle.

UCLAN MEMBERSHIP

As a UCLan student at a partner institution, you will have access a full range of services and facilities at UCLan, such as membership of the Students’ Union and access to the library.

Foundation Degrees

Foundation degrees are made in the workplace for the workplace, a vocational higher education qualification which combines academic study with work-based learning and experience. Foundation degrees are designed by employers working closely with further and higher education institutions and are now being studied by thousands of people across the UK.

Whether you’re just leaving 6th form or college, or you’re a mature learner looking for to develop or change your career, you’ll find foundation degrees are relevant to the work place.

You can benefit from the special features of a foundation degree:

  • Flexible entry requirements – especially for mature students who can offer work experience alongside qualifications
  • Full-time or part-time study
  • An emphasis on knowledge and skills required in the workplace.

And you can top-up your foundation degree to a full honours degree by studying for a further two years (full-time study).

Please contact the individual partners for more information.

Further information on Foundation Degrees can be found at the Prospect's Website.

What our students had to say!

We’re really proud of the successes of our former partner students. This section contains case studies from our successful students who have studied on UCLan HE courses in our partner institutions, some of which have ‘moved on’ on to further study at UCLan. Read on to learn about their personal achievements and how you could do the same.
