Lancaster University History
Recognised as a leading UK University, Lancaster University has an affluent and prestigious history.
Established by Royal Charter in 1964, Lancaster University admitted its first students in October of that year.
The institute’s founding subjects focused on the natural sciences, business, humanities, and modern language, but shortly after, expanded in to new ventures.
In 1990, Lancaster University developed its collegiate system occupying 9 different locations – 8 for undergraduate study and 1 for postgraduate.
From the university’s conception, it was clear that the institute would focus on research as well as teaching, and has maintained that ethos to present day.
The Institute now occupies a beautiful 560-acre parkland site in the North-West of England at Bailrigg, Lancashire.
Notable alumni include Grand Tour presenter James May and English film actor Andy Serkis.
