In this new era, geographical boundaries mean little to the scope and expansion of higher education. If a student is willing to pursue his dream in any foreign institute, the conditions are positive and encouraging. The same is the scenario for institutions also. As part of their expansion projects and to make their mark on the global stage, various higher education institutes have set sail to find newer pastures to establish their roots. Being the first University from the UK to open a campus in Germany, Lancaster University offers a unique opportunity for students to access world-class education offered in Germany. Lancaster University is among the top higher education institutes in the UK, ranked amongst the top 10 in all three major national league tables, as well as they are highly ranked in international league tables such as the QS World Rankings. Even though rankings aren’t everything, it is a good place to start looking for the best institutes. Out of the 120 UK universities, Lancaster University is consistently in the top 10 and has maintained its 6th place position in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019. The Management School of Lancaster University is quadruple accredited by AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA and the Small Business Charter. Other than this, the University also offers courses on Software Engineering, Business Management, Computer Science, and Accounting and Finance.

The Importance of Choosing the Right Place

Operating out of Leipzig, the fastestgrowing German city with a robust economy, Lancaster University has placed itself in the right spot to grow and make its mark in the German soil. Combining their contemporary
mode of education that has been ranked 7th in Europe with the economic potential of Leipzig that has companies like BMW, Porsche, Siemens, DHL and Amazon anchoring their operation in, the students graduating from the University are perfectly poised in terms of employability. The New York Times refers to Leipzig as being a ‘cool-kid town’ and lists it within the top 52 destinations to visit in 2020. The authors particularly highlight the year of industrial culture, which Leipzig celebrates in 2020, and refers to exciting exhibitions, lectures and guided tours. On this list, the city can be found alongside Washington, Salzburg, Tokyo, Egypt and the Bahamas. Combining this aesthetic appeal with the affordable cost of living and the thriving Indian community in the city makes Leipzig the perfect higher education destination for aspiring Indian students.

Lancaster University has been awarded the highest possible score in the UK government's 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) ratings. The TEF Gold rating is based on high-quality teaching, excellent teaching facilities and graduate prospects. Lancaster is also a research-intensive university with 35 percent of research classed as world-leading and 48 percent classed as internationally excellent in the UK Government's latest independent review, the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

A Center of Excellence

The University has about twelve thousand full-time students studying at Lancaster for first and higher degrees, and about seven hundred academic staff out of a total staff complement of over two thousand. In addition, the University has partnerships with higher education establishments overseas including Sunway University College in Kuala Lumpur and the Federal University of Lavras in Brazil as well as a campus in Ghana. The newly opened campus in Leipzig now also provides a unique opportunity to obtain highly ranked UK education in Germany. Strengthening the global
presence of the University, there are now a hundred thousand Lancaster alumni across the world. Offering ample support and mentoring for their students are the expert and experienced faculty members of Lancaster. The faculty members make sure that every student is provided with personal attention. This allows the faculty to get to know their students in a much effective manner that enables them to get the best out of the students.

As a testament to their global outlook, Lancaster's community extends far beyond the campus with research, teaching and student exchange partnerships with leading universities and institutions in 24 countries around the world. “We have a dedicated student services department looking after the students even before they arrive in Germany. We help them to apply for the visa, blocked account, finding accommodation and arriving in Leipzig. We also have corporations with local businesses to help students find internships and parttime jobs. Apart from this, we also offer 1,000 Euro scholarships for all Indian students and we also offer an unlimited number of merit-based scholarships for our students. All this special care and attention that we are giving to our international students has also helped us to be recognized as the ‘International University of the Year 2020’ by The Times and Sunday Times” says, Akos Kiraly, Director of Marketing and Recruitment, Lancaster University Leipzig.
