University of Central Lancashire


We work with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) to deliver the applied aspects of their undergraduate degree in Outdoor Adventure leadership, Masters in Outdoor Practice and Professional Masters and Doctoral programmes in Elite Performance.

The partnership between the University and Centre enables undergraduate students to develop important practical skills from highly qualified and experienced instructors. These core skills underpin the students’ leadership and coaching in the outdoors while also providing a unique link into the national governing body awards.

The postgraduate programmes have access to the activities in the centre, its staff and surroundings to support a thriving and unique research culture that influences the National Governing Bodies for a range of adventure activities and drives the development of practice in the outdoor sector.

The collaboration is unique and combines practical and academic skills that develop capable and employable graduates. The culture of innovation and creativity continues to develop the trainers of leaders and coaches in the outdoors for the future.
