Located on a beautiful 560-acre parkland campus in North West England near the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lancaster provides the perfect space for high-quality teaching, impactful research, and meaningful engagement with industry. A thriving community of international students, staff, alumni and partners, Lancaster is a truly global university with collaborations around the world and teaching partnerships in Indonesia, China, Germany, Ghana and Malaysia.
With graduates in more than 150 countries, what starts in Lancaster can take you anywhere. You will meet people from all walks of life, providing you with an opportunity to learn from and make friends with people from all over the globe. Many of our students also take the opportunity to explore the world through study abroad programmes, volunteering, field trips and vacation travel during the term breaks.
Students also benefit from fantastic opportunities to study and work abroad, gain experience in the industry working for a range of organisations, and career development programmes specially designed for international students. Excellent careers support is embedded into the university experience and many programmes offer opportunities to engage with industry; whether that is a year spent working in the industry, a summer internship, a project delivered for an external organisation, or guest lectures and workshops delivered by businesses.
Lancaster is one of a handful of collegiate universities in the UK. Not only are our colleges where students often choose to live, but they also provide a ready-made community and support network. We’ve won the award for 'Best University Halls' eight times since 2010 in the National Student Housing Awards and our campus is a home away from home, the perfect environment to learn and live.
Outside of the colleges and academic departments, you can also get involved in events and activities through the many student societies and clubs. With over 175 to join, from academic interests and volunteering to craft hobbies and sports, there are plenty of new experiences to be had at Lancaster.
