Lancaster University is to work with Navitas to build a university campus in Leipzig, Germany.

The Leipzig campus will provide Lancaster University degree programmes, with the University responsible for academic matters.

Navitas will be responsible for the provision of leased premises and facilities for the campus, as well as student recruitment, support services, and administrative staff.

The new campus will offer four Lancaster accredited Bachelor of Science programmes taught by the University, and a University accredited foundation programme operated by Navitas.

The first student intake is expected in September 2019.

Commenting on the announcement, the University's Vice-Chancellor Professor Mark E. Smith, said: "This will create Lancaster's first campus in mainland Europe - an exciting prospect and one which I hope will bring new opportunities to ambitious students."

"Lancaster has always considered itself truly international with successful existing partnerships overseas for campus operations in Malaysia, China and Ghana. We also have students from 100 different countries studying in the UK, and research partners in 60 countries, so we look forward to welcoming our new students to our thriving international community."
