Absolutely love this university. I wasn’t a fan about coming to uni, but now I’ve been I couldn’t imagine being without it. The friends I’ve made and people I’ve met have been amazing and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

The University of Central lancashire granted me the best three years of my life. I lived with amazing people from many diverse places in campus which had everything I needed and more in such a close space, nothing was out of reach. My course and tutors are incredible and do not get enough credit for the above and beyond service they deliever. They are the Universities biggest credit. Although, there is spacing issue in the building my course takes place in and the students union requires a revamp to be geared towards all students rather than a select few there are very new negatives as a whole with the uni. I would highly recommend to anyone applying.

The modules are really great and help you learn and improve your photography skills. The lecturers are brilliant and help so much, they are easy to talk to and you can go to them with any problems you have.

There is a broad content of information in the course in third year; less so in second and first year but this is because of BPS guidelines. However, I don't think there is as much choice of modules going into third year, as you are led to believe. Academic advisors are only there to see you if you have a problem; I believe that it would be more beneficial if they arranged to meet you semester-ly or monthly to discuss how you are getting on. You are expected to do everything for yourself, and often assignment topics haven't even been covered in lecture.
