From our centre at ONCAMPUS UK North, based on the campus of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), students are encouraged to develop the skills required for progression onto degree programmes at the best UK universities.

Preparation Courses



Granted university status in 1992, UCLan’s roots go back to 1828 with the founding of the ‘Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge’. It has now established an international reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative universities.


ONCAMPUS UK North has quickly built an outstanding reputation for quality of teaching, quality of service and positive student experience. This reputation is borne out of our simple focus to deliver the best student support that we possibly can. Through our partnership with UCLan, we are proud to prepare international students for success in their chosen degrees at UCLan or at other leading UK universities.
