The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has risen eight places in the latest national league table assessing student experience.
UCLan was ranked equal 51st in the Times Higher Education’s (THE) Student Experience Survey. Key areas of success for the University were support and welfare and good sports facilities. It was ranked 27th for its ‘centralised and convenient facilities’ and 20th for its library.
The THE Student Experience Survey is a widely respected publication, gathering information about the experiences of around 15,000 undergraduate students across the UK on issues such as social and student welfare, academic facilities, industry connections and the Students’ Union.
Liz Bromley, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Corporate) of the University said: “We are delighted to have risen several places in the Times Higher Education’s Student Experience Survey table. This poll is particularly important to us because it is driven by student opinion and they choose the factors important to them in a top-quality university experience.”
“By investing in the University and listening to what our students want, we will continue to attract students to Lancashire from all over the world, creating a highly skilled workforce and inward investment that can only be to the benefit of Preston and the North West.”
UCLan Students’ Union President Sana Iqbal added: “The University, the Students’ Union and students work collaboratively to ensure that UCLan is a great place to study. It’s great to see the improvement in rankings of the THE Survey as a testimony to true partnership.”
As a further part of this partnership, Portergate is proud to provide the highest quality luxury accommodation to those completing their studies in Preston. We believe that by providing a bespoke living space, we can help to enhance the student experience overall.
