Course Enrolment


Enrolment is the formal process which will confirm your status as a student at the University of Central Lancashire. Once you have received your username and password you should use these to enrol as per the instructions below, so as not to delay any student finance or access to other university services. The online enrolment process should take no longer than 10 minutes.

Enrolling at UCLan means that you:

  • Agree to be a student member of the University for the whole, or part of, an academic year.
  • Confirm your agreement to abide by the University's regulations and to become liable for fee payment. Read the student guide to regulations.
  • Verify that your personal information held by the University is up-to-date
  • Confirm that you consent to the University processing the information acquired by it in accordance with the University’s Data Protection statement.

How to Enrol

The online Course Enrolment system is now open. Once you have your Network Username (User ID) and Password you can access it by using the myUCLan facility. All students are expected to use this service, including those overseas and at UCLan's Partner Institutions.

If you are a new student, please visit the Registration page for information regarding attending a Registration Event.  You will need to show some form of personal ID such as a passport, driving licence or birth certificate.  It is important that you attend between these dates, but if you are not able to attend, then drop in at any time to The <i> or any CAS Hub with your valid ID to complete Student Registration.  If you are expecting a Student Loan this will enable us to tell Student Finance to release your money.
