Entry Requirements

Lancaster has been welcoming students from around the world for many years. We have a lot of experience of the different education systems across the world.

To study at Lancaster you would need to ensure you meet our entry requirements, and it is essential that you have the right level of English to be successful on your degree course.

You may need to complete a foundation course before you begin to study at a UK undergraduate level.  We accept qualifications from a wide range of institutions, including Lancaster's own International Foundation Year and courses offered by partners overseas.
