High progression rates at Lancaster University International Study Centre

Maria Lancaster

82% of International Study Centre students who successfully completed their course were offered a place to study at Lancaster University in 2017.

Maria from Singapore was once a student hoping to progress from her foundation year to Lancaster University. After completing the International Foundation Year in Life Sciences, she progressed to a degree in Ecology and Conservation. Discussing her time at the International Study Centre, Maria said:

“The International Study Centre style of teaching is different to what I’m used to. It’s more of a student-based curriculum, in the sense that they care about you as an individual, not as a unit where you have concepts drilled in to you. The tutors take the effort to learn what your style is and they teach according to that style. They go around and ask if you need help with something, they ask if you’re okay with the concepts they’re teaching, which is different from what I’m used to, but in a really good way. I find learning here much better.”

Maria’s story and the very impressive progression results highlight the supportive environment the International Study Centre provides for students who are moving away from home and preparing themselves for a future at Lancaster University and beyond.
