Visiting Students

Lancaster University welcomes over 400 visiting students from overseas universities each year. The Study Abroad Programme is fully integrated and you will study and live alongside UK and other international students.

When can I study?

We welcome visiting or exchange students, whether taking courses for one term or longer. You must have completed a year of study at your home university before coming to Lancaster.

You can study at Lancaster for:

  • Michaelmas term (October-December)
  • Lent & Summer terms (January-June)
  • Full academic year (October to June)
  • You can also study for a calendar year (January-December) if that fits best at your home university.

What can I study?

We offer a wide range of courses, which complement your home degree and offer you a challenging and rewarding learning experience. Credits can be transferred to your home university. For full details see study abroad modules: Linguistics and English Language.
