Schools and Colleges

Here at the University of Central Lancashire, we’re committed to supporting pupils of schools, colleges, sixth forms and other further education institutions progress into studying in Higher Education.

The Lancashire Arts Festival provides a perfect opportunity for students interested in a career in the creative industries, to immerse themselves in wide range of exhibitions, live performances and fashion shows and indulge their chosen passion.

You can also find out more about how UCLan can help you and support your students on the journey into Higher Education. Discover our other great range of events hosted throughout the year – many of which are free to attend.

This year our School and College Visit day will be on Thursday 21 June 2018.


On our School and College Visit day, our Student Ambassadors will guide you on your bespoke tour of the Degree Show exhibitions on our Preston City Campus.
You will have the opportunity to visit a mixture of subjects held in Victoria, Hanover, Harris and Edward Buildings.


Following demand from last year, our workshops and performances are back for Lancashire Arts Festival 2018 displaying the best of Culture and the Creative Industries.

On your bespoke visit, you will have the opportunity to attend special performances in Theatre, Dance and Music

Alongside the performances, on the day there will be interactive workshops in a range of subjects: Music Production, TV Production, Open Mic, British Sign Language and Publishing.
