Highly ranked global university
Lancaster University gives an outstanding performance in all areas that matter to students. This has been continuously recognised by national and international university rankings and surveys, and Lancaster’s performances for 2019 and 2020 have been no different.
Lancaster has achieved a top 10 in the three major national league tables:
- 6th in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019
- 7th in the Complete University Guide 2020
- 7th in the Guardian University Guide 2020.
The university has outshone many of the Russell Group institutions in these major UK rankings.
It has also impressively ranked 128th in the QS World University Rankings 2020, and 146th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019.
Furthermore, Lancaster has been named as having the Best University Halls in the National Student Housing Awards – seven times since 2010. The university has also been awarded the International Accommodation Quality Mark, which only six other institutions in the nation have achieved. This highlights providers that have an international student satisfaction rate of higher than 90 percent.
