Lancaster University (Psychology Department) is very much lecture based; sit and take notes for hours amongst a 100+ students. Good for just getting information in but gets tedious quickly :( Seminars are smaller and more intimate but it depends on the group, some can just be an hour or two of awkward silence a week- degrees are very much what you make of them! A lot of the work is essays and report writing - good if you want to be a research psychologist or to be able to critically read, evaluate and make a judgement on others' research but very little practical therapy is covered - something I think should be made more apparent; a lot of psychology students want to go in to that area.×

Public transport is expensive, but bus passes are available and the best option really would be to get a bike and cycle. Food is expensive on campus but there are several supermarkets reachable by bus and more by car if you have access to one. Give yourself a generous budget for books. They are expensive and it is surprising how quickly costs add up. If you over budget for books then you can use the extra money later on to celebrate...×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
