Congratulations to our Top-up graduates

Well done to everyone who recently graduated from our Blended Outdoor Leadership Top-Up degree.

The programme is aimed at practitioners who work in the outdoor industry, and our graduates have studied part-time for two years to achieve the degree.

The course is delivered on weekends, one module at a time, and supported with online learning and elearn tutorial sessions.

The graduates have studied topics such as Leadership and Change, Conditioning for Adventure Sports, Performance Coaching and Sustainable Outdoor Practice.

We have a new cohort each year, so the current cohort will soon be joined by our new intakes of students. For more information please click here. Alternatively you can email Course Leaders Rosemary Powell or Helen Hooper.

Lodge hosts welcome week activities

First year undergraduates visited a local outdoor education centre as part of their induction week programme.

The group took part in a team building trip to Hothersall Lodge in the Ribble Valley, where they enjoyed a range of outdoor activities designed to whet their appetites for the months ahead.

Hothersall offers students the chance to gain experience and National Governing Body qualifications throughout their time on the UCLan Outdoors programme.
