Most of the university’s taught postgraduate courses will require attendance of regular lectures and seminars. In-between these on-campus sessions, students are expected to work on assignments, engage in shared learning activities with other students, and explore reading materials, case studies and other resources related to the course.
The university’s courses combine academic excellence with real-world teaching. Students take part in hands-on learning experiences in environments which mirror those found in professional life.
Aerospace Engineering students can take to the skies in high-tech flight simulators.
Trainee dentists get to work with real patients under supervision in an on-campus Dental Clinic.
Media and Television Production students present live news broadcasts from industry-standard studio facilities.
Nursing students work with real patients during their placements, working on the frontline of the NHS.
Courses are shaped by industry needs and the cutting-edge research of the university’s leading academics so, by the time of graduation, students will have developed a versatile set of skills which makes them highly employable.
Many of the university’s academic community are recognised as distinguished experts in their fields. They’ve been involved in world-leading, life-changing research in collaboration with major international organisations, including the World Health Organization, European Space Agency and NASA – to name a few.
Research, innovation and knowledge exchange are at the heart of much of the university’s work. As a result, academics are engaged in research which is leading to breakthrough discoveries, deepening our knowledge of the world around us and transforming lives in every corner of the globe – from capturing the first ever image of a black hole and unveiling the mystery of ancient artefacts, to improving maternity care in developing nations and revolutionising stroke patient care in India.
In the most recent Research Excellence Framework assessment (2021), 66% of the university’s research outputs were recognised as ‘world-leading’ or ‘excellent’.
There are opportunities for students to undertake research degrees at master’s and doctorate level, either full-time or part-time. These are ideal for those aspiring to pursue an academic career, contribute to the advancement of human knowledge and make a positive difference to the world. Research students will be part of a vibrant academic community and get all the support needed to work towards getting their research published in the future.
The university offers a number of distance learning postgraduate courses which are generally completed online. These programmes give the flexibility to organise studies around existing work and family commitments or achieve a University of Central Lancashire qualification from anywhere in the world.
Students have access to an online learning portal containing a wealth of learning resources and support materials to help get the most out of the course. It’s likely that students will be asked to participate in virtual learning activities such as live web seminars, research tasks and group activities with other students.
There are also ‘blended learning’ courses on offer which combine online learning with teaching sessions on campus.
