MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR DAY

Before you get here

Refine your options - think about what you want to know beforehand. Create a shortlist of courses and write a list of unanswered questions.

Do your research - read about studying at UCLan and and think about what you want to know more about. Chat to one of our students before you arrive and ask them anything about university life.

Take a sneak peek - get a feel for what our campus will be like on our virtual tour, so you know where you are going on the day.

Register and check your emails - we will be sending you useful information as it gets closer to the day and more tips to make the most of your visit.

Find out how to get here - Preston Campus is in the heart of the city centre and can be reliably accessed by rail, bus, coach or by car. For weekend visits, car parking is available on a university car park. For a weekday visit we recommend alternative forms of transport as visitor spaces are limited. Our campus map indicates parking options in walking distance. Need a place to stay? View our handy list of local hotels.

On the day

Check-in early - check-in on arrival to let us know you are on campus, collect information to enhance your visit and reserve tour times.

Talk to course tutors and students – our subject open areas are staffed by course tutors throughout the day. Have an informal chat about your course(s) of interest, ask current students all of your burning questions.

Attend undergraduate subject talks – gain more insight into what the subject offers - we recommend attending these for the course(s) you are really interested in.

Visit our halls – chat to staff from accommodation services and take the opportunity to explore the show flats.

Take a sneak peek - get a feel for campus with our student-led campus tour (Preston Campus), which lasts approximately one hour and depart regularly from check-in points throughout the day. Dress for the weather and wear comfy shoes!

Get a second opinion – bring along someone who can offer help and advice on your university decision. We are pleased to extend our invitation to parents, family and friends.
