Post 16 Events

UCLan are following official guidance around social distancing measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  We are continually updating guidance for our staff, students and visitors and we are trying to limit as far as possible the spread of the virus across our campus and wider community.  We are therefore currently postponing our outreach activity for the foreseeable future.   The situation will be continuously under review and we will be able to honour commitments to events later in the academic year where possible. We are also using this time to develop our offering and to make arrangements for the next academic year. If you would like to liaise with our team regarding any enquiries or suggestions for activity, please contact eliaison@uclan.ac.uk and a member of our team will be in touch.
