UCLan has been named a 4-star university

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has won a number of five-star awards and has been rated a four-star university via the QS Stars rating system.


The system rates universities across the world through a range of factors.

UCLan was awarded five-stars for teaching, employability, internationalisation, facilities and inclusiveness. Dentistry, the University’s chosen specialist programme, scored four stars (very good) while three stars (good) were awarded in the research and innovation categories. Overall, the University was given an overall rating of four-stars.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Graham Baldwin said: “This is another strong set of results for the University underlining our ability to transform lives through an outstanding educational experience.

“It signals to the wider community, including potential future students, partners, and staff, that UCLan is leading the way in modern learning, equipping graduates with the real-world skills needed to thrive in the global workplace.”

QS conducted a detailed examination of UCLan’s performance over a six-month period.

Unlike rankings, QS Star ratings are entirely based upon an institution’s performance, and not how they compare to its peers.

By covering a broader range of criteria than any world ranking exercise, QS Stars shine a light on both the excellence and the diversity of the rated institution.

The QS Stars achievement follows on from previous success on the international stage when, earlier this year, the Centre for World University Rankings 2022-23 listed UCLan in the top 7% of universities worldwide.
