    The Lancaster University campus in North-West England occupies a beautiful 560-acre green site, just three miles from Lancaster City Centre. Across the campus, we offer exceptional learning facilities, from the labs and lecture theatres in our faculties, to the multi-million pound sports centre and outstanding library facilities. There are a vast array of other facilities on campus including shops, banks, hairdressers and coffee shops. A short bus ride or cycle will take you from our campus into the heart of Lancaster – a city full of character and culture. It’s a city without the sprawl, compact enough to walk around and small enough to hold onto a friendly personality. But there’s also everything you’d expect from a modern city, with plenty to see and do, from busy shops and a vibrant nightlife to cultural attractions and beautiful parks.
     
    In a time of global change, we pride ourselves as being one of the world leaders in higher education. Lancaster has four strategic partnerships teaching validated Lancaster degrees overseas in Ghana, China, Malaysia and, recently announced, Germany. Additionally, we have research, teaching and student exchange partnerships linking us with leading universities and institutions across the world. Strong links with universities and institutions in the USA, Asia and Europe ensure that we work at the forefront of international, collaborative research projects, working on major global issues. Students from more than one hundred countries study at the Lancaster campus which is an open and welcoming community that values equality and diversity.
     
    The quality, reach and significance of research produced in Lancaster University's vibrant research environment is world leading. In the last Research Excellence Framework (the system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions), 83% of our research was rated as either internationally excellent or world leading. Research is undertaken in each of our Faculties with much of this being interdisciplinary and collaborative in nature. Some of the exciting developments taking place at the moment are the new £41 million Health Innovation Campus which will make a major contribution towards tackling some of the significant health challenges we face today, work by The Lancaster Environment Centre to change to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges as well as research into education, health and social care, well-being, culture, the leisure sector, media, transport, manufacturing and the environment by ‘ ImaginationLancaster’.
     
    We have four faculties offering a range of degree programmes:

    • Arts and Social Sciences
    • Health and Medicine
    • Management School
    • Science and Technology
