Visit Us

There's a range of ways to visit the campus, to see our facilities for yourself and meet staff one-to-one. You and your family can learn more about student life as a whole plus the specifics of choosing the ideal course for you.


Applicant Visit Days

Once we have received your UCAS application we will invite you and your family to a dedicated open day relevant to your chosen degree scheme(s). These events tend to occur between November and March, so you'll see normal term-time activity within the Division, with current students attending lectures and practical classes.

Our open days include:

  • A one-to-one informal discussion with an academic staff member giving you the opportunity to find out more about your chosen course, the Division and the University generally.
  • Presentations by academic staff members about our degree schemes and student welfare/finance at the University and a talk by one of our current students about what it's like to study here.
  • A tour of the Division and campus. We will show you our excellent teaching and research facilities and give you a flavour of the type of research expertise on offer in the Division. You will also see more of the campus generally, including typical on-campus student accommodation.

If you're applying for Biological Sciences (C100) or Biological Sciences Year Abroad (C102), you're invited to book on one of the open days with our colleagues in the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC).


Open Days

The University's campus-wide Open Days are a great opportunity to build a picture of what it might be like to study at Lancaster. Within BLS, you can talk to our admissions tutors and current students, look around our teaching facilities and take part in research demonstrations with our academic staff.


Campus Tours

We offer tours of campus on Monday afternoons throughout the year. You'll be able to visit our our award-winning student accommodation, social venues and library in the company of current students happy to share their experiences of living and studying here.

Alternatively, you're welcome to attend a Campus Tour Extra. These add an opportunity to visit teaching facilities and meet our admissions tutors.

If you can't attend one of the scheduled tours, you're always welcome to visit our 560-acre campus at a time of your own choosing. Register for a self-guided tour and we'll send you the map of a suggested route.


We look forward to meeting you.
