            2014-2018, Master’s Degree

            Brilliant Law FacultyYLancashire Law School has been rated School of the Year for 2015, and this comes as no surprise. The lecturers have extensive experience within the academic circle, however, most also hold experience of being in practice within legal services. UCLan recognises that professional development is just as important as exams and essays, which is why a core 'skills module' is offered to allow students to develop their professional skills required for practising in law. Preston campus in general offers a range of facilities such as a fitness centre, sports hall, 24 hour library and on-campus accommodation. The campus is walking distance from Preston city centre and offers great transport links.

            2012-, Bachelor of Science (BSc)

            I've completed 4 modules via distance learning with UCLan and I'm taking a further 3 this year. UCLan is the only university who offers a BSc in Astronomy via distance learning, and as I work full-time, this was a natural choice for me to be able to pursue a passion of mine without breaking the bank and allowing me to work at the same time. I can't recommend the course enough and I've learnt so much in the few years I've been studying so far. I hope to complete the course before 2020, by taking 2 or 3 modules per year.
