Parents and Guardians

This short activity provides useful information for applicants and parents about support at Lancaster and preparing for university.

Applicant pre-arrival course

Please note: Once the student has fully registered to study their degree programme with Lancaster University, we will not be able to liaise with anyone else on the student's behalf without their express permission due to data protection. In line with this, we prefer to liaise with applicants directly as this models the communication we will have with students in future. You might find it helpful to encourage the student to be proactive in communicating with university staff. Read our data protection policy for more information.

Sending a student off to university can be emotional and sometimes daunting. It is normal to worry that they might not settle in well at University, but there are lots of ways you can help ease the transition to Higher Education. Please click on the categories below to find out more.


How Lancaster University can support your young person

Lancaster University's Disability and Inclusive Practice Service is here to ensure that the student is getting the right provision for their needs. We can support them in making sure they provide us with the right evidence to get support in place.

Lancaster University also offers pastoral support to students who might need extra help settling in, and we have a dedicated Student Mental Health Team who can help if the student is struggling once they have arrived at University.
