  • University Experience Days

    School students

To help students make very important decisions about their future, the University of Central Lancashire invites Year 12 learners to our University Experience Days. We also welcome Year 13 students, who have not yet submitted their university applications.

In each event, professional advice is shared on important student issues such as the UCAS application process and challenges to expect when moving into university from school/college. Our events consist of a range of differently themed contents. They are delivered by expert, research-active academics who provide their audience with a complete understanding of what university students typically experience.

Our events are free to attend, and run from 10am – 2.30pm. During the lunch period, all visitors are served a complimentary hot lunch.
