Description

Lancaster University is a collegiate university in the UK city of Lancaster and a member of the N8 Research Partnership: an association of the eight most research intensive universities in the North of England.

The university dates back to 1947 when a public meeting in Lancaster supported the proposal for a university college to be founded in the city, although it was 1964 before its first students were admitted. Its original site was in St Leonard’s Gate in the middle of the city. Today, the campus occupies a picturesque, 360-acre parkland site three miles from the city centre.

Lancaster is one of just a few universities within the UK to have a collegiate system. It is home to nine colleges overall, eight for undergraduate students and one for postgraduates.

The campus has the feel of a small town with banks, shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, a pre-school centre and health services.

Students can also enjoy the campus’s own theatre and art gallery, home to an international art collection that includes Japanese and Chinese art, antiquities, and works by 20th century British and European artists, including Miró and Ernst.

The university is located close to mountains and the sea. The Lake District National Park and the Forest of Bowland, areas of outstanding natural beauty, are both within close proximity.

Lancaster has a strong reputation globally. Its international partnerships with higher education institutions include Sunway University College in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the GD Goenka World Institute in India, COMSATS in Pakistan, and the Brazil- based Federal University of Lavras.

Lancaster is consistently voted one of the best-value universities for students and its student halls often win awards too.

I hold the University in very high regard. Before going to University I did not consider the role that the college system would play, but it was the focal point of my university experience. It provided me with instant opportunities to meet new people and join societies, giving immediate access to a support network that helped me throughout my uni. The support given throughout your degree is very effective. The lecturers are passionate about their subjects and incredibly well informed, and were always happy to help with queries regarding assessments.

Due to Covid-19, my University has responded very well to the change of circumstances and has given students the opportunities to opt-in for any cancelled exams. This is something that I highly appreciate as it has given me the chance to improve my grades. I have had problems with the University's organisation in the past but these current events have shown me what a great University it is. I still have some complaints but they are quite minor.

The univeristy is great the teachers are great there is a lot of support for students academically. However, sometimes as an international student it feels like it is harder to make friends and interact. People form groups in year 1 and if you are shy it will be hard for you to find friends. I have not experienced any racism at the university but one of my friends has.

The university is really nice. The campus is excellent which is much like a township. Faculty is good, accomodation is good. There is a minor problem with the management which can be fixed. Studies are fair. The location of the university is also good as major cities like London and Manchester are nearby.
