Five Great Reasons

Top Ten

Lancaster is ranked among the top ten universities in the UK

Lancaster is ranked 9th in the Guardian University Guide 2019, 8th in the UK in the Complete University Guide 2019 and 6th in The Times/Sunday Times 2018. There are more than 120 universities in the UK.


We're great for getting you a job...

97.6 percent of Lancaster graduates are either in employment or further study three and a half years after graduating according to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Longitudinal Survey published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency in August 2017. Supporting students into employment or further studies is central to our mission: we offer work placements, one-to-one support, and skills training.


...and for student satisfaction

91% Lancaster students say that they are satisfied with their course according to the National Student Survey 2017. Lancaster's on-campus accommodation has won the Best University Halls award for seven out of the last eight years in The National Student Housing Survey and we are also one of only four universities to hold the International Accommodation Quality Mark, awarded for over 90% satisfaction among international students.


We're collegiate

Lancaster is one of a small number of leading UK universities to operate a college structure. All students (and staff) join one of our eight undergraduate colleges – Bowland, Cartmel, County, Furness, Fylde, Grizedale, Lonsdale and Pendle – or Graduate College.


We're global

Lancaster has more than 150 academic partners across 24 countries around the world. Strong links with universities in the USA, Asia and Europe ensure that we work at the forefront of international, collaborative research projects, working on major global issues.
