We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Lancaster is a town in Lancashire, in the north of England, situated around 210 miles north of London. There are two universities and around 20,000 resident students in the Lancaster region: the University of Lancaster is situated in Bailrigg, two miles to the south and a campus of the University of Cumbria operates within the town itself.
Despite its relatively small size, Lancaster has an important place in the history of England. The city was the seat of one of the two competing houses of Lancaster and York seeking the royal throne during the fifteenth-century Wars of the Roses.
It retains many features of its medieval prominence (including the famous eleventh century castle overlooking the modern town) but also features various attractive examples of Georgian and Victorian architecture, stemming from its later development as an agricultural and manufacturing hub.
Postgraduate students in Lancaster have access to some of the UK's best university facilities whilst living in a scenic part of northern England. As well as its own shopping, entertainment and heritage attractions, Lancaster is near to renowned natural features such as Morecambe bay and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; it is also a relatively short distance from the famous landscapes and scenery of the Lake District, in nearby Cumbria).
Lancaster's local university, Lancaster University, was founded in 1964. It was soon relocated to a purpose-built campus in nearby Bailrigg, connected to the town by regular public transport services. Lancaster is normally ranked within the top 15 British universities and the top 150 worldwide.
As well as Lancaster University itself, Lancaster is home to a campus of the University of Cumbria, housed in a former barracks within the town.
