Schools and colleges liaison

Our team can help your students make informed decisions about their next steps. We offer engaging, bespoke activities on-campus at UCLan or at your school or college.

On-campus events

Students will get a taste of university life when you join us on campus. Try our University Experience Day or a range of subject-specific taster sessions. These taster sessions are designed by academics to show students what they could be studying.

Off-campus sessions

Can't make it to campus? Our team will come to you. We deliver a range of talks and workshops in schools and colleges. That includes general application advice and subject-specific taster sessions, so students can learn more about their chosen course.

Widening participation

We have been transforming lives since 1828 and are committed to access and widening participation in higher education. We work with groups that are underrepresented in higher education to promote opportunity. If your school or college includes students from such backgrounds, find out more about our widening participation scheme.
