UCLan Degree Shows: School and College Day

This day is the best time for prospective students interested in a career in the creative industries to visit UCLan. In addition to our extensive architecture, design, fashion, fine art and media exhibitions, we also have a selection of workshops and the fashion show choreography rehearsal. We recommend early booking, especially if you are interested in the workshops, which have limited capacities.

Exhibitions: Explore the extensive exhibitions in architecture, design, fashion, fine art and media. A student ambassador will guide your group around campus to the exhibitions of most relevance to your students’ creative interests.

Fashion Show Choreography Rehearsal: See a dry run of our stunning catwalk show, as previewed at Graduate Fashion Week in London, with professional models, industry stylists, music and choreography.

Workshops: Experience interactive workshops on a range of topics with our team of creative arts lecturers. A personalised programme will be developed for your group dependant on your students’ creative interests and workshop availability.

This event is open to students aged 14+. Large groups will be split into smaller groups of no more than 20.
