Find about more about how we can help you progress through your Postgraduate Research Degree Programme, with links to our document library, support teams, research ethics and governance and research events.

Document Library

The Research Document Library provides an A-Z of links to download all relevant forms and guides needed for each stage of your research degree programme.

Research Support

The University provides an extensive support network for research students, led by the Graduate Research School, and we are here to help you make the most of your research degree programme and research activities. We deal with all issues relating to postgraduate research students (PGRs) from enrolment to award.

Research Governance

All research projects conducted at the University of Central Lancashire require research governance to ensure ethical approval (where required) and adherence to policies and regulations.

Research Ethics System

Ethical approval is assessed by three committees and the University provides an e-Ethics submission system for all relevant research proposals.

Postgraduate Research Training

There is a full range of online and face to face training and development opportunities to support you through your research degree programme.

The Student Information and Support Centre is your dedicated support hub for advice and guidance in all aspects of life at UCLan. Located on the bottom floor of the library, the friendly and professional support staff can provide information on all support services available at the university.
