UClan has continued to rise up the ranks of university tables!
Last year, UCLan climbed by 27 places, and following this, the Preston based university has risen a further 5 positions in the Complete University Guide 2021. This means UCLan is now ranked 70th out of 130 institutions.
Further to this, UCLan has seen a huge rise in the ‘student satisfaction’ category. This is a table based on a range of aspects of teaching quality and is measured in the National Student Survey. This year, UCLan has climbed 40 paces, from 88th to 48th!
UCLan also has a range of high quality subject areas ranking in the top 20 courses in the UK, with forensic science ranked number 1 in the North West and 11th in UK.
Some of the top 20 subject areas include dentistry, general engineering, food science, East and South Asian studies, hospitality, leisure, recreation and tourism, linguistics and physiotherapy.
Speaking on the institutions success, vice-chancellor Professor Graham Baldwin said:
“The results in this latest table are very encouraging. We were the largest riser in this table last year and so to consolidate that position this time with a 40-place increase in the student satisfaction category is a great achievement. The investments we have made, including our £200 million Masterplan development, have been led by student feedback and we are now seeing the results of this pull through into this latest table. Once our new £60 million student centre and new square is completed, we expect to see further good news in our overall satisfaction levels and league table performance. Once again our forensic science provision has been highlighted as a sector leader being ranked 11th nationally and first in the North West while our engineering provision continues to perform strongly.
Right across the board though our course portfolio continues to reflect our ethos of real-world practicality meaning people irrespective of their backgrounds can fulfill their potential while meeting life and career goals.”
Across Lancashire, UCLan is officially the largest provider of graduate level qualifications. At any one time, around one per cent of the county’s residents are enrolled at the university.
