Partner university facilities
As a Futureworks degree student, you are also enrolled as a student of the University of Central Lancashire. This gives you access to a wide range of facilities both online and at their central campus in Preston.
You can access a huge range of resources online through the MyUCLan portal including e-journals and databases, e-books, resources for study skills and a dedicated eLearn section. You also have access to Lynda.com, which offers industry-led online tutorials in software, study skills and employability.
UCLan partner students can also access a range of support resources in person at the Preston campus. WISER gives academic support to students. They will read up to 1500 words of your work and provide feedback on your writing, referencing and sentence structure. They also provide group workshops and writing clinics. For more information call the WISER team on 01772 895000 or have a look at their website.
UCLan’s Access to Learning Fund (ALF) is also available to indirectly funded students (i.e. where UCLan receives the tuition fee for the student from the SLC). For more information about this please visit the Futureworks Student Services office.
Counselling at UCLan’s Preston campus can be arranged for partner students. If you would like to speak to someone about this please visit the Student Services office or book an appointment online.
Partner students can access careers support via the UCLan website. This includes e-guidance, telephone appointments and campus events alongside a wide selection of online resources including interview practice, CV builder, alumni connect, career courses and a job vacancy portal.
In order to use any of UCLan’s services you will need a UCLan card. To get a card you will need to upload a recent photo and your UCLan ID number (which you will receive when you enrol online). Once you have applied for your card it will be sent out to your home address within a few days.
If you have any questions about our partner facilities and resources please visit the Futureworks Student Services office.
