Five Great Reasons

Here are five great reasons why Lancaster is one of the very best places to live, learn and get your future off to a flying start.

  • 1Lancaster is one of the UK's top 10 universities

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

  • 2We're great for getting you a job

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

  • 3And for student satisfaction

    Nine out of ten Lancaster students say that they are satisfied with their course according to the National Student Survey. The University attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds and over 100 different nationalities. Our student halls were voted best in the UK for the fourth year running. Major new investments are being made in the Library.

  • 4We're global

    Lancaster has a huge number of teaching and research links around the world, providing 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, Pakistan and Malaysia. In total, the University has 5,000 students studying for Lancaster degrees outside the UK.

  • 5We'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 nine colleges – Bowland, Cartmel, County, Furness, Fylde, Graduate, Grizedale, Lonsdale and Pendle. Each college has its own history and traditions, creating a more supportive student environment and more opportunities to get involved in activities.
