There's plenty of opportunity to grow your CV too. Besides our extensive sports course range, we offer CPD in coaching awards. All this plus free state-of-the art sporting facilities across all of our campuses. Find out about all this and more below.
British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS)
Are you competing at a high level within your sport? If it’s a BUCS Sports or BUCS Para Sport you’ll be excited to be part of our winning team. You could represent us in one of our many sports clubs. We also compete in the BUCS leagues, along with other cross-university sporting competitions. Competitions are UK-wide throughout the year.
At UCLan we also place extra investment into six key focal sports. If you’re talented in one of these areas or a BUCS sport, then you may be eligible for a sports scholarship. Awards range up to £5000 cash support, plus various packages of support and benefits. Find out more about our focal sports below.
