Lancaster University´s operation in Leipzig has been approved by the Saxon State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts. The campus is located in the heart of the City of Leipzig and welcomes German, EU and international students. Here, the undergraduate programs enable students to earn a degree from a top-ranked British university while studying on a campus in the heart of Europe. Students can enroll at the degree level and programs such as BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance, BSc (Hons) Business Management, BSc (Hons) Computer Science, and BSc (Hons) Software Engineering by joining directly. Small class sizes makes sure students receive extra attention and support throughout their degree. The Foundation Year is intended for students who do not meet the entry requirements for direct entry (English level, school qualifications, etc.) or who want to gain subject or academic skill confidence before beginning their degree course. Students can enroll in their desired degree after successfully completing the foundation programs in business and computer science. Bachelor degree students can spend their second year at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom. This allows them to broaden their education in a new teaching and learning context, as well as gain new perspectives on their discipline. In addition to the standard career support available to all students, the University provides specialized career programs and resources for international students to ensure students are job-ready for Germany, their home country, or anywhere in the world. Although students will study in Leipzig, yet they get their degree from Lancaster University UK which allows them to apply to any postgraduate programme in Germany, the UK or any other country in the world. Standing on 132 in the World QS Ranking, Lancaster University degrees are globally recognised for their excellence.
