You’ll be learning in purpose built studios, which create an effective workshop atmosphere, with our expert staff on hand to continually support and inspire you. Our students exhibit in major competitions, both at home in the UK and internationally, and many of them have an enviable record of winning awards for their work.

You’ll be able to take part in international field trips and benefit from our links with major arts organisations and industry professionals, who are regular visitors to the university and work with us to provide advice, present lectures and develop live briefs to give you real world design experiences.

If we’ve stimulated your creative interest, then check out our wide range of art and design courses, or come and visit us at one of our open days.

You can also find out more about why the University of Central Lancashire is a great place to study and discover Preston, the small city with a huge personality! Our city centre campus is compact and central, and the large population of students has turned Preston into an energetic metropolis with a buzzing nightlife and a growing arts scene, surrounded by pubs, clubs and eateries that provide worldwide cuisine to cater for every palette.
