UGA Exchange, Lancaster University

Located on a beautiful campus in the North West of England, the University places great emphasis on a strong student experience and employability and gives students access to academics who are experts in their field.

Lancaster is one of only a handful of universities with a collegiate system which has helped to forge a strong sense of identity and loyalty, and continues to be a distinctive feature of student life at Lancaster. Students from one hundred countries make up a thriving community based around our nine colleges, creating a culturally diverse campus in a location that boasts the combination of city, coast and countryside.

Lancaster's community extends far beyond the campus with research, teaching and student exchange partnerships with leading universities and institutions in 24 countries around the world.

Now approaching its golden jubilee year Lancaster's journey has been a remarkable one, and it is now amongst the top one per cent of universities in the world, with an ambitious strategic plan.

Program Reviews:
Finley Alexandria Anderson-Dircks, Spring 2017 Participant
Going to Lancaster was one of the best experiences I've ever had! Everything is cheap because you're not in a big city but the downtown area still gives you a city experience. The people are so friendly and welcoming and the quality of education you're getting is top-notch. I highly recommend the program to anyone who might be interested!
Finley Alexandria Anderson-Dircks, Spring 2017 Participant
There is a higher quality of cultural learning that occurs when you live and immerse yourself in a culture completely by yourself. I made so many lifelong friends overseas from countries across the world and learned far more about the U.K. than I ever could have from the states.
Testimonial:
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Go! You can make it happen financially even if you end up living on peanut butter and ramen! If you have any desire to travel, take the opportunity to study abroad and live somewhere else for as long as possible--you'll never get another chance like this.
