Language Support

From October to December our TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) team offer free English language classes to students and members of the local community. Language Academy students are welcome to attend these classes.

Language Academy students can also have access to learn English via Rosetta Stone, a computer based software programme. This is housed within the Worldwise Learning Centre.


UCLan is an inspiring place to study, with a range of modern and well-resourced facilities.

The 24-hour library is one of the North West’s most impressive learning facilities and the Worldwise Centre is dedicated to promoting world languages and culture, with international media resources and the space to socialise.

The Students’ Union is on-hand to provide advice to students and has over a hundred societies to get involved with. Events and cultural festivals are hosted throughout the year.
