Academic Support and Services

Each student is assigned an academic advisor for the duration of their course. The tutor is their seminar leader for all the core modules with the first year programme of study. From then on they can make appointments to discuss any concerns they may have both academic and personal.

Flying Start

The Flying Start Programme offers FREE events for new students over the summer. At UCLan we know many people feel nervous about starting University for the first time so we have developed Flying Start to help ease that transition. Get to know your way around campus, meet other prospective students, make some new friends. We will familiarise you with all the fantastic services UCLan has to offer and show you what other opportunities are available to you while you study. In short we will help you prepare for starting in September!

Student Support 

UCLan offers a range of support and services to help all students, but especially students who may need a little extra assistance, because they are from care or estranged from their parents. We understand that at different stages of your university life you may need different types of support and advice, or none, depending on your own individual needs, and would tailor the support to suit you.
