Our double degrees are four-year integrated programmes. You spend two years in Lancaster, two years studying abroad. In addition you will undertake work placements in the UK and overseas. 

First year students are introduced to business analytics, financial accounting, management, organisation and work theories. In your second year, you will learn more about data analysis, finance, economics and marketing. In both years, you study languages with the Department of Languages and Cultures. All students take an approved work placement in the summer vacations of their first two years.

Your third and final years are spent abroad, studying at the prestigious UDLAP (Universidad de las Américas Puebla) in Puebla, Mexico. You transfer to the partner university at the beginning of your third year studying courses such as Managerial Economics and Introduction to Operations Management. You will also undertake a work placement in Mexico, typically starting in the middle of your third year.

At the end of the four years, you will be awarded two degrees: BSc Hons from Lancaster and the corresponding degree of the partner university. Our graduates find their international perspective put them in a strong position in the corporate jobs market. These include roles in market research, financial analysis, management, communications and consultancy with brands such as Aston Martin, Deloitte and Neilson.

Course Structure

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme to complement your main specialism. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster please visit our Teaching and Learning section.

The following courses do not offer modules outside of the subject area due to the structured nature of the programmes: Architecture, Law, Physics, Engineering, Medicine, Sports and Exercise Science, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and Biomedical Science.

Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, and the University will make every reasonable effort to offer modules as advertised. In some cases changes may be necessary and may result in some combinations being unavailable, for example as a result of student feedback, timetabling, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes and new research.
