A pre-arrival programme for targeted first year students coming to Lancaster University.

You will be matched with a Host Buddy who will provide you with email support prior to arrival and will meet with you during the first term to help you settle in. Your Buddy can provide you with friendly advice on a range of topics, and will offer opportunities to socialise and meet other students.

The programme runs August – December and will be advertised over summer. 

Places on the programme are limited and we will prioritise support for students who are First in Family to attend University, from a low-income household, Black or Minority Ethnic, Care Experienced/ Estranged, and Student Carers. Check out the related pages for other support.
