A young and sheltered relative of mine went to a foreign student spot admission exercise conducted by the University of Central Lancashire. Apparently, even though her undergrad background is Biochemistry, the recruiter offered her a scholarship to do International Business. :dubious:
I’ve been over their website, of course, and I don’t think this place is worth the financial undertaking (she’s based in India and 1 GBP ~ INR 87). The university might be perfectly legit but, honestly, the home page doesn’t feel…well…academic enough to me. (I know, I know…books and covers…)
Furthermore, based on this Times website, they were ranked 87th in the UK itself a few years ago. That’s definitely not a plus.
Could someone with familiarity of the UK education system give me a heads up about this place? Are they known for any particular schools? Anything really great you know about the place? Anything really awful?
