Visit Us

We offer you several ways of seeing the department, campus, and student life here for yourself.

Undergraduate Open Days

Open Days are your opportunity to find out more about applying to Lancaster. You can spend a day on campus learning about degrees in and with History, our facilities and accommodation, and meeting staff and students in the department. Visit the Undergraduate Open Days page to find out more and to book your place. 

Campus Tours and Drop-In Sessions 

Regularly organised campus tours take place throughout the year. Some of them are followed by a chance to drop in on an academic department. Visit the Undergraduate Campus Tours page to find out more and to book your place.

Applicant Days

Current applicants are invited to come to one of the History Department’s Applicant Days. Applicant Days are primarily intended for applicants to whom we have already made an offer. They offer an opportunity to sample the atmosphere of the campus, to meet current students and tutors in the department, and to learn about the details of courses. We encourage all applicants to come but we strongly advise successful applicants (ie, those to whom we have made an offer) to attend, even if they have already attended a University Open Day.

Travel details for Applicant Days. For travel details for those of you who have booked to come to one of our upcoming Applicant Days, please view the directions to Lancaster University and campus map. Student helpers will be around campus, directing visitors to their destinations and a car parking space. There will be minibuses transporting people from car parks to the Chaplaincy Centre, or you may choose to walk instead. History Tour Guides will be on hand to direct visitors from the Chaplaincy Centre to the Conference Centre for Registration. Car parking is free for visitors at Applicant Days. (Scratch cards will be handed to you on arrival by one of the student helpers; early or late arrivals, please collect from University House Reception - map ref. 32).
