John Thomas Jardin, Fall 2018 Participant
You are right near one of the most beautiful places in the UK - the Lakes District. Lancaster is also just two stops on the train to Glasgow and only requires at most, one transfer to London, Manchester, and Liverpool. However, if you are looking to travel throughout Europe on the plane, it is important to keep in mind the distance and time needed to get from Lancaster to Manchester, home to the closest airport.

John Thomas Jardin, Fall 2018 Participant
Surpassed. I went in with few expectations and Lancaster did not disappoint.

John Thomas Jardin, Fall 2018 Participant
I loved every course I took. I took three modules for credit and was then allowed to audit two others just because I thought they were interesting. The teachers at Lancaster are fantastic.

I now have friends all over the world and know that my future career will have to be international in nature. I fell in love with travel and hope to one day become an international human rights lawyer. If I could move back to the UK and stay there forever, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
