Welcoming students from around the world

Welcome to Lancaster and the UK

The UK is a friendly and welcoming place, with a rich and exciting history, and a love of celebrating international identities. The north-west is a beautiful region made up of coastline, mountains and thriving cities. At the heart of it all, you’ll find Lancaster.

Lancaster University is a community of students, staff and graduates from across the globe, located on a beautiful 560-acre parkland campus providing the perfect space for high-quality teaching and pioneering research.
