University Profile

History

In 1828, the University of Central Lancashire was founded in Preston as the Institution for the Diffusion of Knowledge. ‘Ex solo ad solem’, or in translation, ‘From the Earth to the Sun’, has been its motto ever since – helping talented people from all walks of life to make the most of their potential.

Today Central Lancashire is one of the UK’s largest universities with a student and staff community approaching 38,000. Internationally the University has academic partners in all regions of the globe.

Foundation Year

The Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly on to their chosen Honours degree programme. An additional preliminary year of study will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed at Honours degree level.

It also provides an ideal solution if you perhaps chose the wrong A Level subjects or you have not fulfilled the number of A Levels required, instead of repeating a year at school or college, giving you the university experience from the outset. Many of our Foundation Entry degrees offer some flexibility within the subject area at the end of the first year, giving you more time to decide on your specific pathway.
