Student Ambassadors

If you are considering applying to Lancaster or have already applied and have any questions, our Student Ambassador Scheme provides an opportunity for applicants to make contact with a current student on the programme they are interested in.

Our Student Ambassadors are students of various nationalities and backgrounds who are willing to share their knowledge of study and life at LUMS. Find out what it's really like from people who are living the LUMS experience!

The Ambassadors are able to give informal advice based on their own experiences. They can help to answer questions relating to student life and the experiences of studying at LUMS.

Below you will find details of our Student Ambassadors for 2014/15. If you wish to make contact with one of our Ambassadors, please send an email to lumspgambassadors@lancaster.ac.uk giving details of the postgraduate programme(s) you are interested in.

Please note that if your query is a specific question about entry requirements, making an application or other related topics, our Student Ambassadors are unable to assist. Instead, please contact the LUMS Postgraduate Admissions team, who will be happy to help.

You can also contact a former student through our alumni advisers scheme.

Live web chats

We also provide opportunities for you to chat to one of our current students online. Our students will be available to answer your general questions about Lancaster and student life in an honest and informal way. We will be displaying details of available web chat sessions shortly.
