Emphasis is placed on developing professional and leadership knowledge along with skills applicable not only to the outdoor sector, but also other areas within and outside the outdoor industry.
In addition, students develop an advanced understanding of the practical and contemporary issues within and specific to the outdoor sector.
The Outdoor Leadership degree is delivered through a range of formal lectures, seminars, workshops and discussion groups, both on campus and throughout the local area.
Practical work plays an important role in course delivery and you will be actively engaged in residential experiences throughout your time at UCLan.
For those who wish to develop their skills even further, personal skill development and expedition opportunities are available and include:
- Winter mountaineering (Scotland & France)
- White water kayaking (Slovenia & Austria)
- Sea kayaking (North Wales)
- Open Canoe expedition (Canada)
- Advanced climbing (Wales)
Students have the opportunity to obtain a wide range of National Governing Body awards - paid for by UCLan - through our extensive enhancement programme. Please click here for further details.
