TESTIMONIAL

HERE WHAT THEY SAY…

Here’s what our graduates say about their experience with PDVL or their university

“As an international student it’s often easy to feel lost; the accent is different, the education system is different. However, I quickly realised how interactive and open-minded people at UCLan can be and this allowed me to settle. Yes – I was out of my comfort zone, but this enabled me to grow as a person.

UCLan goes the extra mile to make international students feel inclusive, from the airport pick up service to the extremely accessible staff.”
