I chose Lancaster because of the superb academic opportunities on offer. Lancaster University is an institution with an outstanding reputation for the quality of its teaching and research. The best thing about my course specifically is the outstanding academics I get to work with, and I am benefitting enormously from what I learn from them.

You can get a lot of help from the University if you have any problems with your study, living and society activities. The University is doing its best to make a friendly and warm circumstance for every student, home or overseas.

After I complete my PhD degree, I would like to spend more years in Lancaster as a postdoc. Even if I am not lucky enough to get a position in Lancaster, I will miss this lovely University forever. The experience in Lancaster will help with building strong relationships with future office mates and my time here has given me the essential technical skills and mind to perform successful research in the future. The campus provides excellent facilities and living conditions for student life. The help covers a wide range of topics, including Careers, which is an award-winning service that provides combined careers service, enterprise learning and career development learning provision.

Lancaster is such a nice town in which to study and enjoy a country life. I met a lot of nice people and made good friends here. I have enjoyed living here so far, it is a place to call "my second family."

Lancaster University is ranked in the top one percent of universities in the world, listed at 131 in the Times Higher Education international table and 163 in the QS World University Rankings. As an institution with an outstanding reputation for the quality of its teaching and research, students at Lancaster University are more satisfied with their course than the average UK student, with 91 percent of final year students at Lancaster saying they were satisfied with their course! This fact, accompanied with high levels of graduate employment, makes Lancaster a great place to study.
