Changes to Course Information

We understand that you want to research potential Universities and courses in good time and we endeavour to ensure information on our website is regularly updated.

However, whilst the courses described are those that we plan to offer, the information may have been released far in advance of the academic year(s) in which you are interested and may therefore be subject to change at a later date.

For example, admissions requirements, course content and delivery can be subject to change to enable the course to deliver a better quality of educational experience to students enrolled on the course. This can be in response to various factors including: student feedback; annual reports from external examiners; feedback from the sector or industry advisors or as part of the regular review process by course teams.

Therefore, all reasonable care has been taken to ensure all course information contained on this website is accurate, however the University cannot guarantee that all courses will be available in exactly the form and detail described and it may be necessary to vary the content or availability of some courses.

Applicants are encouraged to check information on our relevant course pages from time to time, particularly before submitting any application for their academic year of study. For details about changes to course information after you have accepted any offer, please see our Conditions of Offer on our Student Regulations and Policies page

Some courses are subject to formal course approval which may result in changes to the course structure or availability. For students holding current offers whose course has been subject to validation, please see the conditions of offer sent to you, the current version of which can be found on our Student Regulations and Policies page.

We are committed to ensuring our courses remain accurate, up to date, relevant and of benefit to its students. As part of this process courses are subject to periodic review which may result in changes to the course structure. The timing of anticipated reviews of courses are noted on course pages where relevant.

The University is also currently reviewing all of its curriculum to be in line with a new Institutional Curriculum Framework which came into operation from September 2020. The Curriculum Framework has been designed to ensure that consistent elements are embedded into all of our provision and there is parity of student experience and opportunities. It is anticipated that this review will be completed by August 2023.

Our University entry requirements will vary depending on the individual course and the year of entry. Any reference to typical entry qualification or grades stated on the website are provided as a guide only. There is no guarantee that applicants who have, or are predicted to achieve, grades equivalent to or exceeding typical entry qualifications or grade will be made an offer by the University of Central Lancashire.

For students with qualifications gained outside of the United Kingdom, you can seek an indication of the qualifications typically required to gain entry to one of our courses by using the ‘Find Your Country’ feature where you will find country specific information about qualifications

For further details about our approach to entry requirements and admissions, please see our Admissions Policy on our Student Regulations and Policies page.

Any offer of a place made to you by the University is on the basis that, in accepting such an offer, you agree to the University’s Terms and Conditions, which form part of the contract between you and the University. A copy of the University’s current terms and conditions of offer can be found our Student Regulations and Policies page.

The contract between you and the University is anticipated to be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and any dispute handled by the courts of England and Wales.

Information on fees detailed on this website are also correct at the time of publish and are likely to be subject to an inflationary increase, and also at the time the university makes an offer to study on a particular course.

Information concerning and indication of general additional costs can be found in our Fees and Finance section.

Some modules relating to a course are mandatory and others are optional. Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year. Delivery of modules will depend on factors such as changes to theory and practice in the field, student and professional feedback and how many students choose that particular option. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this course, you should be aware that not all of these optional modules will be running. At (or before) the start of each year, you will have an opportunity to discuss your course and preferred options with your tutor. The University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, but cannot guarantee this.
