We are very proud of what our students and staff have achieved during a difficult period and we are delighted to see our community spirit come to life. Thanks to everyone’s efforts, the 2021 academic year has been positive and student Covid cases have remained low.

2022-23 academic year

As we prepare for the 2022-23 academic year, we wanted to give you an idea of what you should expect at Lancaster. With the successes of the 2021-22 year, we have seen a return to normal. The previous few years have demonstrated that we are able to flex as required to ensure our students are supported and have a safe and positive experience. We continue to work closely with Public Health England and to follow UK Government guidelines.
