Lancaster has been shortlisted for the title of University of the Year in the Times Higher Education Awards 2010.
Other institutions in the running include Birkbeck College, University of London, Edge Hill University, Newcastle University and the University of York.
There were almost 500 entries across the 18 categories of the 2010 awards, now in their sixth year. The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 25 November.
The Editor of the Times Higher Education magazine, Ann Mroz, said: “The awards represent a unique and high profile opportunity to celebrate the excellence and amazing achievements of UK higher education institutions, and reaffirm our commitment to the two core pursuits of higher education: teaching and research.”
