Hi,

I have received an offer from Lancaster to do an integrated PhD in Economics. I really like my allocated supervisors there. However, the only thing I know about Lancaster University is that it is ranked good in Guardian, Complete and Times rankings, and also ranked in the top 200 in both QS and THE world rankings. I would be gald if you please give me some information regarding its research & teaching quality, its study environment and campus life (as I cannot visit it. I live in London).

I have also recieved offers for integrated PhDs from Essex, Sussex, Manchester and Southampton, and have secured places for MSc Economics at LSE, Queen Mary, Edinburgh and SOAS. However, I want to go to striaght PhD because those are funded whereas MSc courses are extremely expensive.

I did not apply to UCL because it is extremely expensive and no funding for students from the country I come from, and also did not apply to Warwick because their MRes+PhD is 6 years long (and also requires a GRE). I am awaiting decision from Oxbridge and York.

P.S. I am new in here and this is my first post. So, apologies is advance.

Know nothing about it but my cousin did an economics Phd at Lancaster and he seems to be doing well for himself (he's 32). Plus he studies there for his bachelor's so the uni must be doing something right that made him want to stay on for another 3 or 4 years or however long a Phd is!

I wish I could help you out more, I'm sure a Phd at Lancaster would be a great option (unless you have an offer from a better uni)

Thank you once again for your reply.

I hope it is good. I have offers from other good institutions but my main concern is funding, but at Lancaster funding is not a problem at all.
