International Airport Pickup Form

The University offers an Airport Pickup Service for all new Overseas UCLan students, from Manchester Airport only.

Students joining UCLan in January 2018 will be able to book an Airport Pickup for between 8am and 8pm on the below dates:

  • Monday 15th January
  • Tuesday 16th January

If you wish to use the Airport Pickup Service, it is essential that you book a place. If you do not book a place, you will not be able to use the service. UCLan’s Airport Pickup Service is free of charge.

Please be aware, if you are unable to book a flight that arrives on any of the dates listed above, you can still request an Airport pickup, however we cannot guarantee to be able to meet you, and you may need to make your own way to Preston. The airport pick-up service is for students only. If your parents or family members have travelled to the UK with you, they will need to make their own way to Preston. If you bring more than two suitcases and one piece of hand luggage, you may be unable to use the Airport Pickup service. You would then have to make your own way to Preston.

To request an Airport Pickup please complete the below form.

For more handy hints and tips for your Journey to Preston please see our Arrival into the UK page.
