I realised there is no thread for this yet (or at least I couldn’t find one) so I decided I’d make one!

This is a thread for anyone applying to Lancaster University for 2018 entry. Fill out the below form to let everyone know a bit about you!

Name:
Course:
Predicted Grades:
Other Universities:

Also if you have already received an offer let us know!

As for me,

Name: Emily
Course: Mathematics and Computer Science
Predicted Grades: A*AA (and already achieved an A* in an Extended Project)
Other Universities: Oxford, Bristol, Durham and Leeds

I have already sent off my application but still waiting to hear back, it’s only been a few days and I’m not sure how quick Lancaster are with offers.

UPDATE: I recieved a conditional offer of AAB from Lancaster on 30/10/17!

I wish you all the best of luck and start posting!

I actually applied for, and got offered a place by, Lancaster last year, but decided to take a gap year and reapply. This is my backup when / if Cambridge or Durham don't work out :P

Still eager to hear back from Lancaster, in the confirmation email they said they’d get back to me ‘very soon’ which sounded promising but it’s been a week now and nothing yet, really can’t stop checking my emails and track!

It took about 10 days for me to get an offer last year, it shouldn't be too long for you!

It is because they have told me that there isnt much to do there and that lancaster is too small. I am from Spain and probably can't visit it so im quite scared of choosing a dead place.

Lancaster is a city - I'm pretty sure there's always going to be something going on.

To my knowledge, Lancaster doesn't interview at all except in exceptional cases (such as giving an unconditional),

Thanks for this - so how would they decide who to give an unconditional to?
