Dear Class of 2025:

Congratulations on being offered the chance to start your F&M education with our prestigious partner, Advanced Studies in England (ASE)!

Only the very best students from our admission applicant pool were selected. We are so impressed with the talent, ambition and creativity that this highly selective group brings to the Class of 2025.

F&M is known as an internationalized institution, and we look for students who will thrive in an educational setting that immerses students in global issues. We have invited you to participate in the iF&M program because we believe you have the capacity to be a vibrant contributor in a challenging and rewarding international environment.

The iF&M program is designed to challenge and support you. You will explore the liberal arts tradition through classes offered by faculty from Oxford and other prestigious institutions. You will have the city of Bath and beyond as your “lab,” offering you a welcoming environment that holds new discoveries around every corner. Following your semester in Bath, you will arrive on F&M’s Lancaster campus as part of the international community that defines the student body, perhaps already planning your next international experience!

As you peruse this site and welcome brochure, imagine yourself in Bath. What excites you about your upcoming experience? What questions do you have? The expert and caring staff at ASE, along with those of us here in Lancaster, stand ready to help you take full advantage of this very special program.

We hope to welcome you soon!
