POSTGRADUATE STUDY FOR THE REAL WORLD


A postgraduate degree can be a real investment in your future, whatever your career goals or personal aspirations may be. At UCLan, our postgraduate programmes are inspired by a culture of innovative thinking, which is very much grounded in the real world.


A focus on future employability is at the heart of our postgraduate programmes – we work closely with businesses of all shapes and sizes, with public sector and similar organisations and with a wide range of professional bodies, to ensure programme content keeps abreast of the latest industry and sector needs.


Our academic staff are often experienced industry or professional practitioners themselves, and our students and staff are from the UK and from around the world, meaning that we not only give our students an excellent academic experience, but also encourage them to learn from one another’s culture and life experiences.


World-leading research with real-world impact


Research underpins everything we do at UCLan, and informs the curriculum of our postgraduate programmes. We have a reputation for applying our research in real-world situations, to help develop innovative solutions and technologies that have real impact. Our teaching teams include professors and researchers who are


leaders in their fields – below are details of some of our most eminent researchers:


Professor Caroline Watkins is head of UCLan’s nurse-led stroke research unit – the only one of its kind in the UK – and advisor to the Department of Health. She has recently been made a Fellow of the European Stroke Organisation, for the decade of ground-breaking research she has undertaken at UCLan.


Professor Richard Taylor, a qualified barrister and winner of the Society of Legal Scholars prize for best conference paper, heads up UCLan’s criminal law academic team and is author of a leading criminal law text used in high court decision-making.


Dr Roger Clowes is a member of our world-renowned astrophysics team. Working as part of a team of international astronomers, Dr Clowes recently discovered the largest structure in the Universe, a cluster of young galaxies stretching four billion light years across.


Professor Lubaina Himid, Professor of Contemporary Art, is a world-renowned painter, writer and curator, who participates internationally in exhibitions, books and films on the visual art of the Black Diaspora, and whose work has been celebrated at Tate Britain and the V&A.


At UCLan, we offer postgraduate programmes and research opportunities across many disciplines – in science and technology, health and wellbeing, culture, communication, society and environment.
