Welcome to UCLan Student Support

The UCLan Student Support site provides advice and information on a wide range of topics relevant to current and prospective UCLan students. If you have any questions then please contact our Student Support hub (The <i>) based in the Library.

Important Information

LIS Self-Service Portal

The new LIS Self-Service Portal is now available, enabling you to log a helpdesk call or request an IT service instead of phoning LIS Customer Support.

Academic Calendar

From 2016/17, the structure of  UCLan's Academic Calendar has changed to better support our students moving forwards.

The main difference will enable most students to finish the academic year by mid-July knowing they are able to return and progress the following September.

In summary the changes are:

  • No teaching scheduled during the examination week in January
  • Assessment brought earlier to end of April/early May
  • The immediate release of provisional module marks
  • Resit exams scheduled in June resulting in successful Final-Year Students being incorporated into their Graduation Ceremonies in July. Please note, a further re-assessment week in late August may be available for some students.
