Absolutely loved the three years I spent living in Preston and loved UCLAN. WOuls recommend UCLAN to anyone - although would urge people to think twice before taking forensic science - many people taking the training and few jobs I'm afraid!

I have definitely utilised the work hard play hard moto. There is just so much to do, its so cheap and I have made so many good mates. Everything is so so close and there is something different to do everynight. Since Radio 1's Big Weekend and the fact that Preston has become a place to show up and coming bands, UCLan's Student Union (53 Degrees) Venue is going to have an amazing year. I went to see the Gossip last night, never seen a more eclectic audience ever!!! I think the Union is the best there is and the bands and clubnights that are on are ace.

I would definitely recommend this university and I seriously think it can't be bettered.

My advice is made full use of your time as it goes so fast, if your having fun ;-) I cant believe I have only one year left!!!

Also there are some great part time jobs here too.

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 30 Jul 07

Being a born and bred Prestoner, the prospect of going to University filled me with absolute joy: I could escape my parents, get away from the hellhole of Preston, carve a new life for myself... or I could balls up my A-Levels and stay in my hometown. I did the latter, but my expectations were surpassed by UCLan. Having listened to my partners rantings about his former university (UEL) and him hearing about Preston actually being made into an awesome place by the University, he moved up here and thinks it's ace so far... two happy chappies, hm?



If you're planning to come here, be prepared: us northerners are a miserable bunch of gits, and Fridays nights in Preston are like boxing matches sponsored by Topman and Carling. A sniff of a black wine gum is enough to get most of the locals smashed enough to want to fight.
