Advisory System

The Advisory System aims to provide support for each student independently of their academic department. The members of the Cartmel College Advisor Team are all senior members of Cartmel College (either members of staff or experienced postgraduate students) and will be available for help and advice throughout your time at Lancaster but especially in your first year.

Your Advisor is somebody you can talk to. The first few weeks of University can be confusing as you confront what can seem to be an intimidating new environment. Your Advisor, however, will know the system and be able to provide answers to many of your queries. If they don't know the answer themselves, they will know who to point you towards! Please don't feel shy about contacting your Advisor, they are here to help with any questions or problems, no matter how big or trivial. You can contact your college advisor by email at cartmelcat@lancaster.ac.uk

You are also welcome to contact the Senior Advisor, Adam Taylor, at any time. You can reach him by e-mail at a.m.taylor@lancaster.ac.uk.

 

College Loans

The College can offer short term interest free loans of up to £100 for students who find themselves in unforeseen financial difficulties. If you require a loan please see Cath in the College office.

 

Travel Awards

The college has a small amount of money available to make awards to undergraduates who wish to travel for educational or volunteering purposes that will enhance their degree or employability.

These typically vary from £50 to £150 and are limited by the funds available.  Applications will be judged by the Principal who will look for projects which have some educational component but which are not simply work that is required for a particular University course.  The recipient of a grant is required to provide receipts and submit a report on his or her project by the last day of the following term.

If you would like to apply for a vacation travel award, please download and complete a Travel Application form.  The form should be completed and returned to Cath in the college office by the following dates:

FOR EASTER VACATION TRAVEL BY FRIDAY WEEK 6 LENT TERM

FOR SUMMER VACATION TRAVEL BY FRIDAY WEEK 6 SUMMER TERM
