Discover Together

Our Open Days are an ideal opportunity to visit one of our friendly campuses and find out what we have to offer. There's nothing quite like a visit to campus to bring to life all that you've read about in our prospectus and on our website. So whether you are just starting your journey, are looking to enhance your career or considering postgraduate study, explore our Preston Campus, talk to academics and students and get a real feel for studying in Preston, or visit our Burnley campus in the heart of Pennine Lancashire.



In the interests of the health and wellbeing of its student, staff and stakeholder community the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has taken the decision to cancel to the Open Evening planned for Thursday 19 March to help reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19). This includes the associated Physician Associate Practice Open Evening.
