Changes at UCLan: Your Questions answered


Link to Q&A Document


As you may be aware, UCLan is currently undergoing a series of changes which will affect both academic and support staff over the coming months. Like many other universities throughout England we are undergoing change in light of Government policy, changing expectations of our students and wider economic impacts on Higher Education.   We need to make sure that we are adaptable and agile, to keep up with change and anticipate future developments. For instance, there are areas of the University that will continue to grow as market demand increases and there are areas where market demand is less strong which we will need to manage. The most important thing is that all of our activities are, and will continue to be, focussed on improving the student experience and this will remain at the heart of everything we do.  

Although change can be a challenge we will be making all our adjustments in a way that minimises any impact and disruption to our students. This document hopes to address concerns and provide answers to some of the questions you may have about the future development of UCLan. If you have other questions please ask them via the web link at the end of the Q&A section and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
