Teaching and learning at Lancaster in 2021/22
We will, of course, be guided by the latest health advice at the time, but our expectation is that the University campus will be open for both academic and social activities and all students will return to study here in October. We expect to be able to resume face to face teaching at that time. We will retain some teaching online provision because our experience during the pandemic has shown there are advantages for certain types of learning, but our courses will be mostly taught in lecture theatres, labs and seminars as before.
We’re renowned for our vibrant, international community with students and staff from over 100 countries. This creates a unique student experience, bringing together a range of perspectives to enhance learning and development. To enrich our diverse community further, we’re offering a range of new automatic scholarships for high achieving students from selected countries.Visit Postgraduate Scholarships
