In years three and four, you will study a curriculum equivalent to that in the UK, but taught at the prestigious Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, allowing you to experience the culture of that country. You will then graduate from both universities, with two degrees
This course also offers you the opportunity to become internationally adaptable as you will undertake four months of work experience in the partner country during your third or fourth year.

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster visit our Teaching and Learning section.
