Course enrolment

Course enrolment is the formal step which confirms your status as a student at the University of Central Lancashire. Course enrolment enables your access to all University services.

This online process is compulsory for all students including UK and overseas Partner institutions.

Registration is the process whereby we verify that your personal ID and personal details are accurate and up to date. This enables the University to verify your attendance to the Student Loans Company (SLC) to release finance.

What this means:

  • You are committing to becoming a student with UCLan.

  • You are agreeing to comply with University regulations and to become liable for the payment of a tuition fee.

  • You are verifying your personal details held by the University are accurate and up to date.

  • You are confirming your consent to the University processing your information in accordance with the Universities Data Protection statement in line with General Data Protection Regulations legislation.
