UF in Lancaster

The Lancaster academic program was established to provide students with an opportunity to spend an academic year studying in Great Britain. Pre-med students will find that Lancaster can meet all prerequisite needs. Lancaster has almost all of the core MCAT courses and numerous others suitable for majors in the Biological Sciences. Lancaster is also an excellent choice if you are interested in business. Lancaster offers many opportunities for business majors to take relevant courses, and to undertake project work based at the University or in outside organizations. The opportunity to do research projects, internships, project work or creative writing is available to exchange students through the School of Independent Studies. The work is approved by the School, is supervised by a member of the faculty drawn from the University as a whole and is graded by that faculty member. Lancaster has unrivalled experience in directing, monitoring and grading Independent Research projects.

Housing

Students selected for the Lancaster exchange program are guaranteed a room on campus. All Lancaster students and faculty, including visiting students, belong to one of eight undergraduate residences. Each college has its own distinctive character. Residences contain a mix of British and foreign students, and usually there are no more than two American students on any one corridor. There is no meal plan, but there are a variety of other options for obtaining food.
