Applicant Days

Students on campus

An Applicant Day is the perfect opportunity to experience your chosen subject and give you a detailed insight into what life is like as a UCLan student. Once you have been given an offer, we will invite you to attend an Applicant Day via email. For some courses, an interview or audition is compulsory therefore applicants to these courses will not be invited to an Applicant Day. Please see our Interview page for more information.

Our Applicant Day events for 2020 have now finished, but if you would like to visit campus please join us for a Campus Tour, Campus Tour Extra or Open Day. Alternatively, chat to a student they’d love to hear from you and share their advice.  Take a look at our handy step-by-step Applicant Page to help you navigate your UCLan journey.

Can’t attend an Applicant Day?

We’d highly recommend joining us for an Applicant Day, but if you can’t attend don’t worry we run weekly student-led campus tours and twice monthly Campus Tour Extras, where we can connect you to a tutor.

Having trouble registering for an Applicant Day?

If you are a UCLan applicant and haven’t received an invitation or you are experiencing issues with registering, please email: or call us on 01772 892400.

Have you applied for more than one course?

If you have applied for more than one course, please book for your preferred course as this will be the subject programme you will follow on the day. If you would like to discuss your other course choices with an academic while on campus at Applicant Day, please state the full course title(s) when you are prompted on the booking form. Alternatively, should you wish you can book more than one Applicant Day to make your decision.
