Five Great Reasons



We're great for getting you a job...

93% of Lancaster graduates get a job or further study place within six months of graduation. Supporting students into employment or further studies is central to our mission: we offer work placements, one-to-one support, and skills training.


...and for student satisfaction

Nine out of ten Lancaster students say that they are satisfied with their course according to the National Student Survey, 2014. Our student halls were voted best in the UK for the fifth year running. 


Lancaster is ranked among the top ten universities in the UK

Lancaster is ranked 10th in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2015. There are more than 120 universities in the UK.


We're collegiate

Lancaster is one of a small number of leading UK universities to operate a college structure. All undergraduates (and staff) join one of our eight colleges - Bowland, Cartmel, County, Furness, Fylde, Grizedale, Lonsdale and Pendle.  


We're global

Lancaster has a huge number of teaching and research links around the world which provide exciting opportunities for students to study or work abroad. There are strong links with universities in the US and China. Lancaster also operates in Ghana, India and Malaysia.
