Welcome Message

A warm welcome to the University of Central Lancashire Cyprus campus!

Our vision is to be recognised as a world-class modern university, competing successfully and sustainably within a national and international market. We are determined to be a University that is recognised for its commitment to outstanding research, innovative and applied learning and valuable engagement with industry and communities. We are equally committed to both the exploration and the application of new knowledge, for its social and economic value as well as for its own sake.

The interaction of research and knowledge transfer with high quality programme design will ensure a currency of knowledge and skills development that in turn will drive graduate
employability and expansion of postgraduate activity.

While these are challenging times for higher education, flexibility will be inherent in everything we do. We will be a university which is agile, innovative, responsive to the opportunities and dynamics of various markets. Hence, our approach to innovation and enterprise continues to evolve to ensure the best fit with current and developing needs of both established and new partners. Our vision is ambitious, innovative, bold and challenging, and incorporates our basic, principled commitment to the values enshrined in the University’s mission and values.

Internationalisation remains core to the UCLan Cyprus ambition and we will continue to develop our international engagement and reputation. Our aim is to provide students with an international experience, increasing their intercultural awareness and better preparing them to operate confidently in the global economy after they have graduated. Such work will include the development of regular staff and student exchanges between UCLan Cyprus, UCLan UK and other globally ranked Universities and Corporate Bodies.

Our focus over the coming years will be to identify a number of strategically important partners who will build partnerships with us. Such partners will help support student experience, research and innovation and will be derived from education and business. As part of this approach, the University will be targeting key themes for development, such as areas relating to Energy, in line with the UK and the local economy.

I hope you are as excited as I am about the University’s aspirations and I wish you every success
during your time at UCLan Cyprus! 


Prof. Melinda Tan BA, MA, PGCE, PhD
