Global Lancaster

Our primary strategic goal is to establish Lancaster University as a global leader in higher education. We define global leadership as being a ‘go to’ university for research and teaching that transform lives, communities, practices and thinking across the globe.

Global partnerships

Lancaster is constantly developing partnerships across the world to ensure it delivers teaching that takes students to the frontiers of knowledge and produces graduates who can compete in a global job market.

In addition to numerous international research partnerships, Lancaster has four strategic overseas teaching partnerships offering validated Lancaster degrees in China, Germany, Ghana and Malaysia.

For students studying a Lancaster degree overseas there are a number of ways to study at our UK campus, such as our Global Summer Schools, our Study Abroad programme, transferring your degree to Lancaster or coming to study for a Postgraduate degree.
