The University of Central Lancashire has been transforming lives since 1828 and has always been committed to access and widening participation. To this day we pride ourselves on being an open and accessible institution for people from all backgrounds. We believe strongly in the power of higher education to promote social mobility and this is reflected in our extensive widening participation activities and student support services. For more details of how the university promotes and supports access, please see below for our most recent Access and Participation plans.
We run a wide range of STEM workshops for students aged 7-18 years. With a capacity of 30 for most of our workshops you can bring along a whole class to take part in our fun, interactive and curriculum-linked sessions.
The Higher Education Access Tracker (HEAT) tracks the effectiveness and impact of student success initiatives. If you believe that your data or your child’s data has been processed using HEAT you can contact us.
We believe that everyone should have the same opportunity to study regardless of background.
We aim to enable this and address the imbalance in HE participation so that we can ensure the university is fully inclusive institution that promotes social mobility.
If your school is not able to take part in our access-specific activities there is a huge range of programmes and events open to all schools and colleges.
These include specific activities for teachers; pre 16's; post 16's; tailor made language programmes and more, find out more and get involved.
We work in partnership with a network of primary and secondary schools delivering a programme of aspiration-raising activities. These include on campus visits, workshops both in school and within our UCLan and Young Scientist Centre, group mentoring programmes, residential activities and revision sessions.
Here at the University of Central Lancashire, we are working hard to find ways in which we can deliver online inspirational activities and develop fun resources which can be delivered to current pupils in schools and families to use at home. We have devised some interactive, fun activities which are now accessible online. We hope these activities will keep children refreshed and inspired!
