Hi! I’m joining UCLan for MSc Speech and Language Therapy, and was just wondering how long it roughly takes to receive your student card once you’ve submitted a picture? I submitted my picture almost 3 weeks ago, and I’m leaving for Preston on Monday but have yet to receive my card, so I’m scared I’m going to miss it! 😬

The thought of making friends at University doesn't have to feel so scary. One of our students Nicol-Stella realised this when starting her studies at UCLan 3 years ago. After making a conscious effort to chat to people wherever possible, she found course mates to go to lunch with, or friends to grab a coffee with before lectures ☕
