Five Great Reasons

Top Ten

Lancaster is ranked among the top ten universities in the UK

Lancaster is ranked 9th in the Guardian, 9th in the UK in the Complete University Guide and 9th in The Times/Sunday Times. There are more than 120 universities in the UK.


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

97% of Lancaster graduates get a job – 82% at graduate level – 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 2016. Our student halls are the best in the country, having been voted top for six years running (2010-2016) in the National Student Housing Survey.


We're collegiate

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


We're global

Lancaster has more than 150 academic partners across 24 countries around the world. Strong links with universities in the USA, Asia and Europe ensure that we work at the forefront of international, collaborative research projects, working on major global issues.
