Sapphire's story

"The support from all the staff members is really amazing. There is a really good staff to student ratio in lectures as well as seminars/workshops, which means you get to know both staff and other students very well, leading to a welcoming learning environment. Lancaster University is a friendly, safe and beautiful place to both live and study."

Our Chemistry degrees are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. We have received a TEF Gold standard for excellent teaching.
