  • About
    The University of Central Lancashire is going global – and is evolving every minute of every day. We are now one of the largest universities in the UK with more than 32,000 students, 500 undergraduate courses and 180 postgraduate courses – and it’s not stopping there.

    Around 70% of UCLan’s students come from the North West and the University is proving to be a vital heartbeat to the region’s booming regeneration. It employs 3,000 people, has a turnover of £120m a year and contributes £300m to the regional economy.

    The University is in the heart of the UK’s newest city, Preston, and is a key element in the shaping of this exciting city’s bright future.

    It has invested £60m on new campus developments – including the £15.3m ‘media factory’ to aid work in art, design and performing arts plus help graduates get a helping hand in business.

    People thrive here – and we are proud that 95% of our students are in employment or further study within six months of graduating. That’s higher than virtually every other North West university and equal 32nd across the UK.

    UCLan continually produces students equipped to thrive in a modern, ever-changing world. You, too, could be one of them.

    <b>The School of Art, Design and Performance</b> offers aspiring creatives an exciting choice of courses designed to provide students with a competitive edge. Our innovative and enterprising environment produces students whose hard work, enthusiasm and talent generate successful graduates and industry award winners year after year.

    Study takes place within cutting edge facilities, including our £15 million state-of-the-art Media Factory; the new building helps nurture student, graduate and entrepreneurial talent and has strengthened the North West’s reputation as a major centre for job creation within the creative industries. Students are encouraged to undertake work experience and exploit our strong links with leading companies and industry figures to help them pursue their chosen career. Our staff, many of whom have experience in industry, are dedicated and skilled in teaching and learning skills, knowledge transfer with the business sector, and research – much of which is rated internationally excellent (RAE 2008). They relish the opportunity to share their passion and knowledge with new students every year and look forward to meeting you at one of our Open Days where you can discover more about our courses, uni life and visit our facilities.

Course: 3 yr. Musical Theatre, 2012
A brilliant course that offers a majority of practical work but with some written to give an academic element.

learning at the university of Central Lancashire was a joy. the degree was brilliant, learning subjects from Meyerhold's biomechanics to Stanislavski, From Shakespeare to Kushner and so on. I am very happy to give this course a glowing reference, as it gave me a lot of confidence in myself, as an actor and as a person.
Sally Ann Staunton
Course: BA (Hons) Theatre Practice 2:1, 2005
Fantastic course if you are interested in finding your way as an creative artist as the emphasis was on making your own work.
