What our students think

Don't just take our word for it, read what some of our students said about coming to an Open Day.

"The Open Day was very useful. The current students answered all of the questions I had and I liked to see the accommodation in person rather than online. I remember that the Open Day was well structured and I had talks from current students and staff about my degree and life at university. I would 100% recommend coming on an Open Day if you are considering choosing Lancaster." 

Georgina Cann, Accounting, Auditing and Finance

"After attending numerous Open Days, with Lancaster being one of the last, I knew after stepping onto the campus that this was the place for me. Not only was the accommodation the best I had ever seen but I could honestly say I could see myself living here for 3 years, which hadn't happened anywhere else."


Lelia Green, Mathematics

"I found the Open Day I attended very useful, as it convinced me to put Lancaster down as my firm choice. The memories that stuck with me were how great the campus was, there are so many places to study, so many places to get food and even a cinema. On my course Open Day, I remember how enthusiastic the lecturers were, this was very important to me as I could tell just how passionate they were about their field."

Luke Knight, Theoretical Physics with Mathematics
