Welcome
Making a decision on which University to attend is not an easy one
and should not be taken lightly - only you can decide whether a place is
right for you, so take full advantage today of everything on offer.
You’ll be able to talk to lecturers - you may already know which course
you want to do or you may need more advice on which course is best for
you. Why not take a walk round the campus, most of our facilities are
open, or just see what the city of Preston is like?
After chatting to current students and asking lots of questions, hopefully you’ll leave
with a real feel for the kind of place we are.
We hope you enjoy your
UCLan Open Day.

What’s happening
on the day?
Our registration desks will be open from 8.30am onwards on the day and
are based in the Foster Learning Zone. We strongly advise that you register
before 12 noon to optimise your Open Day experience. If you have
pre-registered then please remember to bring a printout of your fast-track
registration email with you as this will speed up the process when you collect
your information pack. Throughout the day there will be a number of
information sessions and subject talks taking place. Tutors are also available
to offer advice between subject talk sessions; see the subject talk pages for
locations or ask a member of staff for details.
Where can I eat?
Complimentary drinks will
be available throughout the day
in Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre
and Harrington Kitchen.
Foster Learning Zone, Brook Shop, Harrington Kitchen,
the Atrium, Foster Shop and the Media Factory Café will
be open throughout the event where you can buy hot and
cold meals, snacks and drinks. Our Students’ Union Shop
‘Essentials’ will also be open.
Foundation Entry Courses
If your qualifications do not meet our degree entry
requirements, or you want to change subjects, you can study
one of our Foundation Entry courses instead of repeating a
year at school or college. The new integrated Foundation
Entry degrees give you the full university experience from the
outset and are available in almost all subject areas. Equally,
if you’ve not studied for a while but have work and life
experience, a Foundation Entry course could open the door to
your dream career. You can find out more at the Admissions
stand in the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre or at one of our talks
in Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema at 11.15am and 2.15pm. More
details will also be provided in the individual subject sessions.
Self-Guided Tour
If you would like to have a look around the campus at
your own pace then please refer to the ‘Self-Guided Tour’
directions included in this programme.
Free Sports Membership
UCLan prides itself in having a healthy
campus so most of our students are eligible
for a free Sports Membership.
This will give you access to the fantastic facilities at
both Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre and UCLan Sports
Arena and is worth £170! Over 75% of students joined
last year. We offer fitness activities (gym and classes),
sport (team games, racket sports, martial arts) and lots
more. You can visit both facilities during the Open Day
either on the UCLan Sports Arena tour or just ask one
of our Student Ambassadors for directions to the Sir
Tom Finney Sports Centre.
Multi-Faith Centre
The University’s Multi-Faith Centre is located at 33-35
St Peter’s Street (opposite the Library). It will be open
throughout the day for individual prayer and support,
as well as information on our services.
Careers
Careers offers advice and guidance throughout your
course along with a range of events and work experience
opportunities to help you make a success of your future.
There is a stand located in the Foster Building for you to find
out more information, or you can see where the centre is
located on the self-guided or campus tours.
