If you are based in the UK and have an opportunity to visit us, this is of course the very best way to discover for yourself what Lancaster has to offer.

University-wide postgraduate visit days

The University holds postgraduate visit days twice a year, typically in early Spring (February or March) and in mid-summer (June). These allow to talk through your options with members of faculty. See forthcoming open days

Some departments and programmes within LUMS may also hold informal open days for prospective students or can make personal appointments for you to talk with a member of staff. For further details, see the individual Masters programme pages or email LUMS reception.
