Whilst covid has ruined the degree programmes of a lot of my friends, my experience at Lancaster University has been the entire opposite. Our collective struggle has brought the community together and the adaptability and support I’ve have been given cannot compare. I have had assurance and support at every corner and always felt like I could contact anyone in the university. The opportunities from societies, and the close-knit social scene in the city means everyone has the choice of who they want to be. We have international students from all over the world, speakers from high profile universities and a college system that centres community and competition at the core of the university. Our Moodle website means all information can be found together, and the student run newspapers means every one gets a say. For my course personally, my choice of subjects and topic flexibility means I can change my degree how I want, whilst the wide ranging specialist lecturers allow me to simply book an office appointment and have an intimate chat about my ideas. This is made even better by the beautiful campus, and events such as Roses which give the university it’s name. Although Lancaster isn’t the biggest city, the high employability rate comes from its supportive staff and community that ensures everyone gets where they want to be.View more
Lancaster University Management School is one of the management school with triple qualifications in the UK. Its finance and related subject also rank high among all the schools and universities. That can be a good academic reason for being here. Yet, if you are a wild life lover, then Lancaster is the best for you! Located in a countryside far from the city center, Lancaster University can be observed with a bunch of wild animals including rabbits, squirrels, hedgehogs, and different kinds of birds. Living on LU’s campus is amazing.View more
AF is a quite nice program no matter for undergraduates or postgraduates. The professors are all competent and nice. The course structure is kinda demanding but well-scheduled, overall students will get enough knowledge for their careers. However, the location makes people’s lives not have much entertainment. Some staff and students also need to raise their awareness of world citizens.View more
The module design for every business course is amazing and well-structured. Staffs are helpful with quick responses and organized with every agenda. Especially the marketing courses, rated very high globally.View more
Lancaster is a city that you can study in a very great atmosphere there. You don’t have so much thing which can distribute you.
I think their modules which involve programming are very difficult. However, modules such as Excel are a exception.
Course design is the perfect combination of practical and theoretical approaches.
Many other extra-curriculum assistance like Career centres, forums, writing centres, math centres, etc. Really care about students’ well-being. however, the course timetable is too heavy.
I study History and German at Lancaster University and I am thoroughly enjoying my time here. I really enjoy my programme as I am able to split the two disciplines evenly which isn’t always the case at every university. I find the course to be extremely flexible and there is a lot of choice for optional modules which a lot of other courses lack. Furthermore, I find the course extremely engaging (particularly in the Modern Language department). The staff push you to do your best but is still very supportive when you are struggling.
Despite the fact there are many good things at Lancaster, there are still things that need to be improved. Although the staff are extremely friendly, the response from staff emails can be extremely delayed and late. Moreover, during the COVID years at the university, there was an extreme lack of support for students both mentally and from an educational standpoint. This is something that definitely still needs to be worked on now.
Nonetheless, I have extremely enjoyed my past two years here and look forward to the next two years!! I really enjoy the student life here. The town is fairly small but you are still very close to Manchester and Lancaster as well as having direct train links to Birmingham, London, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The SU club also makes nights out feel much safer as only students are allowed in. For what the town lacks in size, the university makes up with the great people you’ll meet!!View more

The content of this course is very thorough, cutting-edge, and very applicable to the world around us. The optional modules are wide-ranging and the dissertation topic is flexible so I could follow my research passions. In addition, the statistical modules have helped me grow in confidence with my statistical skills, and the lecturers have been nothing but supportive throughout. They’re receptive to feedback and it is clear that they want to improve for future students.View more
I think Lancaster University is a very good university with a very strong business department. In addition, the school provides students with a lot of career help, such as one-to-one career planning, specialized job search and resume modification courses. I think the school is very helpful to students in terms of careers. Overall, I like this school very much.View more
