Find out more about our bespoke visits to campus offered for school or college groups, including our sessions, facilities and opportunities available for staff and students.

What to Expect

We offer a comprehensive university experience for all schools and colleges who visit us. We know that these trips are a rare opportunity for students, so we make sure they experience all aspects of university life to give them a real insight into whether university is the place for them.

Campus Tours

We love to give students an introductory tour of our award-winning campus. Our student ambassadors will show them around, highlighting the key parts of the university and giving them some tips on what to look out for when exploring their university options.


Our experienced admissions and recruitment staff can offer a variety of presentations as part of your visit, including Personal Statements, choosing a course and university, enhancing employability, and many more!

Student Q&A Panels

We offer unparalleled access to the life of a student at Lancaster. We start these sessions with our student ambassadors providing a brief insight into their own experience, before giving your students the opportunity to ask whatever they wish about Lancaster, university life, or anything else!

Subject Sessions

As a world-class research and teaching university, offer school and college groups the chance to experience one or more of our subjects of study through the form of a taster lecture or seminar.

A Great Experience

We have built a reputation for delivering an enjoyable day for everyone visiting Lancaster. We asked students from previous visits to share what they thought was great about Lancaster. Below are just a few of the many comments, previous schools and colleges visiting campus have shared:

  • "Our guide was really nice. They answered all our questions and gave us an insight to uni life and showed us her favourite places inside each building."
  • "I like how the university has implemented things that are similar to town so people don’t feel like they are missing out. Lancaster seems like a close community place."
  • "Just seeing the general experience of being in a lecture and walking around this absolutely massive campus. Its been brilliant to see all of this and I'd definitely think of Lancaster Uni as an option in the future"
