Preston and Burnley Offer Holder Days

If you’ve been made an offer for our Preston or Burnley campuses, there’s no better way to find out what studying with us is really like than visiting our campus in person. If you have any queries please contact our Offer Holder Days team by email. 

Our Offer Holder Days give you the opportunity to:

  • Find out more about what you will be studying, the resources and what our successful graduates go on to pursue.
  • Take part in an interactive course taster session, meet your future tutors, current students and your fellow offer holders.
  • Explore our campus and student accommodation on a student-led tour.
  • Discover our second-to-none Support Services, including our new Student Centre in Preston and the Victoria Mills social space in Burnley.

Find your subject area from the alphabetical list below and check the table for the time of each event. Event times are as an indication for planning your visit, and finish times may vary from this slightly.

Not all courses have an Offer Holder Day, and Offer Holder Days for many subjects have already taken place. If you don't see your subject area listed below, book a campus tour to explore our campuses, chat to current students and find out what life is really like at the University of Central Lancashire.

Interviews and auditions

Some courses will combine their Offer Holder Day with your interview or audition (interviews are usually held for dentistry, health, medicine, and there may be auditions for performing arts courses). If you are invited to an interview or audition you will be emailed with more details about how to book your place. Find out more.
