ONCAMPUS UCLan is based on the campus of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), one of the leading modern universities in the UK.

If you study at ONCAMPUS UCLan you are guaranteed progression to many UCLan courses on successful completion of your Foundation programme.

UCLan is a modern University with a strong tradition and a truly international focus. Situated in the heart of the North West of England, its Preston campus is a modern green oasis in the heart of the city. Granted university status in 1992, UCLan has roots that go back to 1828 with the founding of the ‘Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge’.

It has now established an international reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative universities. The development of a £30 million+ Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC), part of the University’s £200 million Campus Masterplan, has ensured that UCLan offers students a world-class educational environment.

Over 30,000 students live in the city of Preston (that’s around one in five), so you’ll be surrounded by plenty of like-minded people, and with plenty of landmarks, activities and events, you’ll be well occupied outside of the classroom too.

ONCAMPUS, part of Cambridge Education Group, delivers programmes that are designed to give international students an excellent opportunity to prepare for the rigours of academic study at UCLan, and beyond.
