HE & FE Open Day - Thursday 13 October 2022
We know that many people who live some distance from Lancaster & Morecambe College would like to study with us; that's why we offer full-time students (studying 14+ hours a week) daily return transport during term time on the routes detailed below.
Full time students from the Garstang and Galgate area may apply for a free bus pass to use scheduled buses, please ask at Student Services when you have enrolled.
Students don’t need to apply to use our free bus service; they will receive their student ID during enrolment which they will use to access this service. Please note that students can only use the bus route that is printed on their card.
There are terms and conditions of eligibility for free and discounted bus passes, to discuss further
Even if you don't live on a college bus route, you may still qualify for FREE or discounted travel to college. If you live more than 1.5 miles from College and your household income is below £35,000pa, we will provide you with a Stagecoach bus pass which you can also use at evenings and weekends.
All students who are not eligible for a free bus pass can buy a discounted bus pass from The Hex, (see prices below), these passes can also use at evenings and weekends.

Whilst the College will endeavour to ensure that all buses arrive and depart at the stated times, no guarantee can be given and students should make their own arrangements in the event of failing to catch the service. No compensation will be paid should students miss their bus for any reason.
In case of serious transport issues with the Student Buses, please contact Mark Shaw, Director of Travellers Choice. In case of adverse weather conditions or roadworks and closures, please see the Travellers Choice website to check the route.
The College has always been a great place for learning resources, I’ve always enjoyed going into College even though I wasn’t ever academically inclined. Whenever I’ve needed to gain any qualifications in my life, LMC has always ticked all the boxes.
To anyone thinking about starting an Apprenticeship I would say it’s a great idea. My Apprenticeship is allowing me to expand my industry knowledge and is helping me learn which job roles in the industry I’m best suited to. It is also helping me draw a clearer understanding of whether I want my next step to be university, or if I would like to continue with full time employment.
I studied here doing Public Services Level 3 and loved it so I decided to stay for another year. I initially chose LMC as it was one of the few that taught Public Services, but also because it is a really good college.
I am proud to be coming to this college and representing this college. I wouldn’t be where I am now without my course tutor Derek, who has helped and supported me through the years. Also I wouldn’t be where I am now without my employer who has helped me to become a better joiner.
The lecturers are unparalleled. Their hard work and dedication to the students to move forward in the course and further our start with the connections they have in the industry was certainly a great support and guidance to start my career in Hospitality & Catering.
I am learning lots of new things on my course and have had the chance to do work experience as well. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and support me well with my studies.
