Lancaster University is set to welcome around 2600 new first year graduates from the UK and EU and around 730 new international undergraduates. Although the numbers cannot be confirmed until registration, the predicted figures suggest that this is broadly in line with the University’s target intake for this year.
This compares with an overall first year undergraduate intake of 2967 in 2012/13 and an intake of 3163 in 2011/12. This year’s expected intake would therefore mean that more undergraduate students are coming to Lancaster than two years ago, the year before the government introduced the trebling of tuition fees.
The University has had greater freedom to attract high quality applicants to consider Lancaster, due to a relaxation in student number controls. The University said that “Lancaster has attracted applicants who were amongst the strongest nationally which supports our position as a leading UK university.”
Of the total undergraduate intake, 901 UK/EU students and 113 international students are expected to join the Faculty of Science and Technology, with 917 UK/EU students and 163 international students forecasted to join the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Elsewhere, 174 UK/EU students and 23 international students are expected to join the Faculty of Health and Medicine, while the Management School is expected to receive 610 UK/EU students and 431 International students.
At postgraduate level, the University are anticipating receiving approximately 500 UK/EU and 820 International students to taught Masters programmes, and about 190 UK/EU and 130 International students for research.
