Why Study at Lancaster
We have a thriving research environment organised around five research clusters, and a number of research centres and smaller groups and English Language and Literature at Lancaster were rated 3rd for Research Power in the latest REF.
We pride ourselves on high quality teaching - we like our students to have access to our research through our teaching. New ideas and developments feed directly into what our students learn. Our full-time teaching staff come from a variety of backgrounds. All are experienced university-level teachers and all full-time teaching staff hold doctorates (Ph.D. degrees).
We are delighted that the Department has been rated 19th in the world in the QS 2017 rankings, 15th for academic reputation. In the 2017 Complete University Guide we are ranked 6th in the UK (3rd for student satisfaction). We scored 90% in the latest National Student Satisfaction Survey and over 70% of our undergraduate students attain a graduate level position 6 months after graduating.
