There are many quite affordable shops in and around UCLan, and there are many part-time career opportunities in the university brought to you by 'The Bridge'. This is set in the union and offers students part-time jobs in the union, for example you can apply to be a bar worker in the student bar. In my course I had to buy a full science set and set books to work and revise from, but however these books can be taken out from the library. I'm a student who travels into university so the main cost for me is transport, but however this costs me less than it would cost me to live on-campus.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
