Academic Advisors can provide academic language and learning support through one-on-one tutorials and student mentoring schemes.

Most departments also have advisors who can help with any problem concerning registration, reading lists, timetables and course materials. All our foundation and undergraduate students are also allocated an advisor who can give general advice on academics as well as welfare matters.

English Language Support

We offer several pre-sessional English Language programmes to suit all students. These programmes are designed to improve your English, develop your study skills and introduce you to Lancaster's teaching methods and language style.
