Visiting Masters Students

LUMS offers the chance for students undertaking Masters at other partner universities to join our Masters programmes for one term, either in the autumn or the spring. It is not possible to come in the summer as this term at LUMS is devoted to completing Masters dissertations.

As a visiting student you have to meet the entry requirements for the degree programme you have chosen, and you must follow the curriculum of one programme only. Because you become an integrated member of the degree cohort for your selected programme, you cannot mix and match modules from more than one programme. See our full range of programmes

Some Masters programmes may give preference to students coming in the autumn (Michaelmas) term. If you wish to study at Lancaster in the spring (Lent) term, you will need to demonstrate that you have covered the equivalent of what Lancaster students will have studied in the autumn term.

How to apply

You must first be nominated by your home university. Your international coordinator will then send the nominations to us and we will contact you directly about the application process.

Once you are nominated, we will need both the transcript for your Bachelors degree and the syllabus for your Masters degree so that we can advise you on which Masters at LUMS you are eligible for.

When we have all the relevant documents, we will then contact you to discuss which Masters degree you wish to apply for – and you will then need to apply through our online information system.
