BSc (Hons) Computing, 2017
There were several factors that attracted Oliver Kerr to choose UCLan as the place to study his BSC (Hons) degree in Computing. The quality of course, the treatment of commuting students and the considered, helpful approach of tutors all persuaded Oliver to make the weekly trip down from his home in Barrow.

You can find regulations and policies relating to student life at The University of Central Lancashire on our Student Contract page.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. 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.
