Interview and Audition Days

Some of our courses invite applicants for a selection event as part of the application process. This may be an interview or audition depending on the course you have applied for.

Interview and Audition Days

Join us for an applicant day

Following an offer for a course you’ll be invited to an Applicant Day. At our Applicant Days, you’ll discover more reasons why UCLan is a great choice and you’ll leave with a sense of belonging to a caring institution and a vibrant community. You’ll get a real flavour of what it’s like to study your chosen course through interactive tasters, experience our course and service facilities, chat to your tutors, fellow applicants, current students and staff from our support services.

Applicant Days

Starting university can be a big transition and you’ll probably have lots of questions. You may be wondering if you chose the right course or, what study and online skills support is available if you’ve been out of education for some time? You maybe after tips and information on budgeting, timetables, independent learning or safety on campus. You may want to know about student experiences of independent living in our accommodation halls or that of a commuter to the university. You may be concerned whether you’ll ‘fit in’ and what extra-curricular opportunities the Students’ Union has to offer. Keep chatting to current students will help put your mind to ease – every one of them have their own unique stories to tell. 

Chat Now

How? Join a Facebook community group. Another means to get a good idea of what to expect from university and a great way to make friends with people before you’ve even arrived. It’s important to share your thoughts and feelings ahead of starting at the university and these community groups provide a safe space to talk to others who are in the same position. You’ll get to chat to fellow applicants in your subject before you arrive and even share resources and ideas. You’ll keep up-to-date with latest news and events from the university and be the first to know about planned events at #UCLanFreshers.
