Why become a partner student?


You can study at a Partner institution local to you, meaning you can access higher education closer to home.

Campus size

Studying at a Partner institution means you'll usually be on a smaller campus, and often have smaller class sizes than at a large university.


Courses are available at all levels. For many of our courses, you can study full or part-time to enable you to fit your course around your lifestyle.

Great services

As well as having access to facilities at your chosen Partner institution you can also enjoy a variety of UCLan facilities and services. Such as the Students’ Union and the library.
