Why Lancaster?

For us, Lancaster is everything a university should be. It's somewhere you can belong, a community to join with a collection of colleges that offer close-knit support and a proud identity. We set high standards, and we challenge, pushing people to new heights. We support and guide people through their studies, research and careers.
