Lancaster University

Overview
Lancaster University is consistently rated among the top UK universities for research and teaching and is ranked in the top one per cent of universities in the world. Around 12,000 students from more than 100 countries choose to study here because of our excellent reputation for research, teaching and student satisfaction. A high proportion of research was rated ‘world leading’ in the latest Research Assessment Exercise published in 2008, where overall, 92 per cent of research was recognised as being of an international standard. The 2011 National Student Survey rated Lancaster students more satisfied with their course than the average UK student. More than £400m has been invested over the last few years to transform the campus which is set in 360 acres of parkland near the historic city of Lancaster on the edge of the Lake District. Recent new developments include: • a £20m sports centre including fitness suites, pool and climbing wall • a £10m contemporary arts institute • a 24 hour Student Learning Zone Lancaster is a collegiate university and has nine colleges which each provide students with small close-knit communities and a “home from home”. All nine colleges on campus have their own bars, facilities and social spaces. The campus accommodation has been extensively refurbished and Lancaster University was the winner of the Best University Halls 2010 and 2011 in the National Student Housing Survey, as well as being one of only five UK universities awarded an International Accommodation Quality Mark. We offer a range of over 250 undergraduate degree programmes, which span the Arts, Business, Health and Medicine, Science, Technology, Social Sciences and Management. Many of our programmes include an opportunity to spend some time studying abroad including Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. Our students also have the opportunity to attend summer schools at one of Lancaster’s partner universities. Lancaster also has one of the largest enterprise and volunteering programmes in the country, with opportunities to volunteer abroad. Over a thousand students have so far taken part in volunteering projects across the region. These activities count towards the Lancaster Award, an employer focussed certificate which recognises the achievements of our students outside their programme of study. Our graduates perform well in an increasingly competitive job market and are highly regarded by employers.
