Hey guys, i have firmed lancaster on, UCAS and loved it looking around.

my one question and concern, is whether lancaster is considered to employers, as a first class uni, up there with the russell group?

i know that, lancaster is ranked top 10 in most of the official ranking online, but is this ranking reflected and known by employers and the wider community?

cheers for reading, and i hope it makes sense
Cheers

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

Hi!

I have confirmed my place at Lancaster after being torn between it and York, and yes I did have concerns about whether Lancaster was considered to be as well respected as some of the other Universities. Although some people would suggest it is very dependent on what you plan to do, I personally get the impression that Lancaster actively assist its students into the working world, where others may not. When I was at my interview there, I was told that Lancaster is the number one University for employability rates post grad for my chosen degree course (the prospectus says number 3 overall, only after to oxbridge). I would say you should not be concerned about Lancaster; although in the past it has not necessarily been considered as ‘presitgious’ it is becoming an increasingly well-respected university, especially since being awarded the University of the Year title (against some extremely good competition too). At the end of the day, University is about going somewhere you are going to be settled and happy at, as both those factors will assist and aid your ability to perform well in your degree!
