3rd Year BA (Hons) Journalism

Favourite thing about UCLan

The facilities. The library is really good and things like the <i> can help a lot with things like student finance that are tricky to deal with on your own.

Top Tip

Just make the most of the facilities, and also explore the student end. A lot of people just go to town but there are a lot of cool places around uni like the Adelphi and the Ferret.
