What Lancaster University is all about

Ranked in the top 1% in the world, and No. 1 in the North West of England, Lancaster is a prestigious collegiate university that is making a global impact. Now in our 50th year, our broad course portfolio is designed to give you a first-class academic experience, together with the knowledge and skills that are held in high regard by employers.

At Lancaster you can enhance your studies by spending time studying abroad, volunteering or taking the Lancaster Award. Furthermore, our innovative approach to year one allows most students to study three different subjects before deciding on which one to major in –this allows you to build a degree programme that is unique to your specific interests, and that could also boost your employability after graduation too.

One of only six collegiate universities in England and working with over a 1000 businesses, Lancaster places great emphasis on a strong student experience and gives students access to academics who are experts in their field.

The campus is located a short distance from the vibrant and historic city of Lancaster, and near to the Lune Valley and the Forest of Bowland (areas of outstanding natural beauty) and on the edge of the Lake District.

Lancaster contributes significantly to advancing knowledge and understanding across a variety of disciplines making major contributions to the Arts and Social Sciences, Management, Health and Medicine, and Science and Technology. We pride ourselves on our inter-disciplinary approach to both teaching and research, which transcends faculty boundaries.

• Lancaster has 12,000 students based at its UK campus and 3,000 based overseas.
• International students from 100 countries form over half the graduate school and 17% of Lancaster’s undergraduate students are from outside the UK. Almost 30% of Lancaster’s full time research and teaching staff are non-British and Lancaster recruits staff from over 60 countries.
• Lancaster is currently ranked within the top ten UK Universities in the Times Good University Guide, Guardian University Guide and the Complete University Guide.

Lancaster students can revel in the knowledge that they are not only studying in one of the safest self-contained campuses in the UK, but also have some of the country's most unspoilt spots on their doorsteps - from country villages, seaside resorts and the lush countryside of the Lake District and Forest of Bowland to the historic and vibrant City of Lancaster.

This diverse mix of City, Coast & Countryside adds a whole new dimension to the student experience - and whilst those studying at Lancaster have all the benefits of a campus 'village' at their disposal, there's so much more to explore and discover within the city and the local area.
