“In the 19 years of our University of the Year awards, there has rarely been a more clear-cut winner.”
– Alastair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide
Lancaster University has been named University of the Year by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.
It has also taken the top spot for Best Campus University and Best University in the North West.
Lancaster has been the top university in the northwest of England for over a decade and this year rose three places to finish sixth place in the national league table, securing it a top 10 finish for the second consecutive year and its highest ever ranking.
Its sixth-place ranking in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, as well as the winning of the coveted University of the Year award, cements its place as an elite UK university.
Commenting on the decision to make Lancaster The Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year and Campus University of the Year, Alastair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide, said: “Rising to its highest ever ranking in our league table this year, Lancaster is at the top of its game. It knows the university it wants to be and as a result makes a distinctive offer to students.
The modern interpretation of a collegiate structure, coupled with flexible degree programmes and academics committed to teaching as well as research has been recognised in consistently good outcomes in the annual National Student Survey. Students love Lancaster.
Dynamic course content and structure, plus the opportunities many students get to work abroad, is reflected in outstanding graduate prospects once they leave. In the 19 years of our University of the Year awards, there has rarely been a more clear-cut winner.”
Lancaster offers a wealth of acclaimed academic staff who guide and support the academic development of our students. It conducts research at the highest international level, creating new knowledge and sharing the benefits of this with its students, partners and users. Lancaster marries academic excellence with practical impact, valuing rigorous research and high standards and also working with industry, business and companies to ensure the relevance of its research and teaching.
Lancaster University is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best staff. Its People Strategy 2020 clearly articulates that the core strength of its university is its people. Attracting the best staff to work for Lancaster University, and within its international partnerships, will assist Lancaster University in delivering its strategic priorities in research, teaching and engagement.
