You are here: Home / Support / Academic Information / Welcome back

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the UCLan campus in 2018 with a whole range of events which will be taking place for a week in September.
Whether you're new to UCLan or a returning student back after the Summer break, take a look at our events:

Before you return

Step 1: Apply for funding

If you have not yet applied for funding for 2018/19 you will need to do so as soon as possible. You also need to make sure you are up-to-date with all your fees or you may be prevented from using the online enrolment system. Find out more about funding your studies. 

Step 2: Enrol on your course

You can access the course enrolment system from early August. You will need your UCLan username and password and will be guided through the enrolment checklist. This service is available to use on or off campus. If you require support please contact your academic support hub for advice. Please note, you may be prevented from using the online enrolment system if you have outstanding reassessments*.

Step 3: Check your timetable and re-induction activities

You can access your personal timetable via the Student Portal. Your timetable may change from week to week so please remember to check it regularly. All returning students are encouraged to get involved with events during Welcome Week - for a full list of activities please visit - can you spot yourself on our video from last years' freshers fortnight?

Step 4: Check your contact details are up to date

It is important to keep your contact details up-to-date, so we are able to contact you when needed.  Please check your home address, email addresses and phone numbers on MyUCLan.
