Couldn’t fault Lancaster from the orientation day to my first day through to the very last. Supportive staff all around available for you whenever you need them. Opportunities to work as a university or department representative are widely available. Accommodation easy to get, and first year’s accommodation absolutely A+. Large desks and ample room. Prices are reasonable. Sports facilities fantastic with gym on campus. Teaching is top class and resources accessible and there’s many of them. I wish I could do my time here again!!


I studied English Literature at Lancaster University and thoroughly enjoyed the course. The quality of lectures and seminars was great and there was a lot of choice. I feel as though my degree has allowed me to apply for ambitious posts after graduation and I have secured the job I always wanted.
