Every year, Lancaster University
enrols over 2000 postgraduate students. The vast majority of those are taught, or by research, Master's students. You can imagine then, that that makes for a vibrant, diverse community, from a variety of backgrounds.
Master's students studying full-time will typically live on campus or close by in Lancaster city, while our part-time and distance, or blended-learning students can combine their studies with living anywhere in the world.
We go to great lengths to foster a strong postgraduate community, so that alongside your studies, you still have opportunities to network, socialise, join clubs and societies, and generally maximise your time with us.
We accept applications to our programmes year round, while each programme will have its own closing date for applications, so be sure to check with the course directors or admissions tutors.
Our list of current postgraduate programmes can be found here: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/postgraduate-courses/
Postgraduate students have a range of concerns very different from those of applying undergraduate students, so we have a number postgraduate students working on The Student Room. They are here to answer any and all questions about studying and life at Lancaster University
