Did you do better than expected in your exams or just miss your target by a grade? Lancaster Environment Centre has a few places left for well qualified students in geography, environmental and biological sciences. 

The Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) is one of the top places in the country to study Geography and Environmental Sciences, according to the 2014 Guardian League Table who placed us third in the UK for these subjects: 96 percent of students are satisfied with their course. 

“We gain some excellent students through adjustment and clearing who go on to do very well here,” said Professor Phil Barker, head of undergraduate admissions at LEC.

As the largest department in Lancaster University, which is amongst the top 1% of universities worldwide, we pride ourselves on offering both breadth and depth to our students, who can pick and choose modules from across a wide range of subjects spanning both the natural and social sciences.

“It was so varied and interesting. I could be studying shamanism in the Amazon one week, then colonialism in Africa or the making of British countryside. You got to know your lecturers, they were so supportive, constantly encouraging,” said Rachel Winter, who has just graduated in geography.

All of our students have the opportunity to go on fields trips both locally in the varied and beautiful habitats of North West England and internationally in Spain, Italy, Iceland, Croatia, the USA, Brazil and Tunisia.

“The high spots of the course for me were the field trips to Spain and Scotland,” said Hanna Nyborg Stostad from Norway, who has just gained a first class degree in Ecology. “There is a big difference between describing habitats and actually seeing them.”

Employment prospects for our graduates are good, helped by LEC’s unique onsite Business and Enterprise Partnerships which is home to more than 20 commercial companies, and helps students find work placements and internships.
