Throughout education, it is important to feel supported and listened to, this is no different at any stage in your life. Lecturers at university do not just want to see you pass your degree, it is because of my lecturers that I have a clearer goal for what I want to do now that I’ve graduated (with a first class honours I should add!)

UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
