The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has entered a global rating for the first time in its history, enhancing its international reputation.
As the University continues to attract students from across the world, Portergate’s newly opened accommodation, designed to meet the needs of every student, is ideal for those seeking a home away from home.
The institution was named by U-Multirank, an online rating system that compares 1500 universities from across the world.
UCLan was given an ‘A’ Grade in the following six areas: – Bachelor graduation rate; graduating on time (bachelors); the number of companies founded by graduates; international academic staff (academic staff with foreign citizenship); international doctorate degrees and bachelor graduates working in the region.
Professor Mike Thomas, UCLan Vice-Chancellor, said: “[The ranking] shows the progression we are making is being identified on the world stage. This success builds on a fantastic 2016 when we were recognised by a host of global league tables for our development.”
The University’s international recognition was enhanced by this ranking as well as previous achievements in 2016, when it was named in the Best Global Universities Ranking for the first time, held its position in the QS World Rankings – bucking the UK trend – and was named in the top 3.7% of all worldwide universities in the Complete World University Rankings.
