Let our students show you what they love about their undergraduate programmes.
Students from across our undergraduate subject areas of Medicine, Sports and Exercise Science and our range of Bioscience programmes, show what they think about studying at Lancaster University. From the joy of discovering new aspects of the human body to building confidence in themselves and their abilities to finding solutions to global challenges, our students grow throughout their studies.
Welcome to the Biosciences
The Biosciences at Lancaster University encompasses Biology, Biomedicine, Biochemistry, Zoology and Ecology & Conservation, and seeks to provide you with the tools to answer the challenges facing the planet today.
Welcome to Sports and Exercise Science
We study people.
We study how they move, how they think, and how they react under pressure. We study how their bodies respond to exercise; from couch to 5k, to monitoring elite athletic performance. We examine how exercise is beneficial before surgical procedures, how the menstrual cycle impacts injury susceptibility, and how exercise benefits mental health. We study all this and much, much more.
Welcome to Medicine and Surgery
We want future healthcare to be aligned with the backgrounds and needs of the communities it serves. This means not only striving for excellence in research and academic standards, but also examining the factors that contribute to positive health for everyone. We are passionate about inspiring future generations to address health inequalities. We are justly proud of the community we have created within Lancaster Medical School. As a team, we nurture talent to bring out the full potential of our students.
