Despite his youth, he began his studies at the University of Glasgow later that year. Long afterwards Lang commented on the inability of some of these eminent figures to handle "the Scottish boors who formed a large part of their classes". Lang was most strongly influenced by Caird, who gave the boy's mind "its first real awakening". Lang recalled how, in a revelation as he was passing through Kelvingrove Park , he expressed aloud his sudden conviction that: A visit to King's College Chapel persuaded Lang that he should study at the College; the following January he sat and passed the entrance examination. When he discovered that as part of his degree studies he would be examined in mathematics, his enthusiasm disappeared. Instead, he applied to Balliol College , Oxford, and was accepted. In his first term he successfully sat for the Brakenbury Scholarship, described by his biographer John Gilbert Lockhart as "the Blue Ribbon of history scholarship at any University of the British Isles".

He rejected an offer of the chaplaincy of All Souls as he wanted to be "up and doing" in a tough parish.

Other offers were open to him; the Bishop of Newcastle wished to appoint him vicar of the cathedral church in Newcastle and Benjamin Jowett wished him to return to Balliol as a tutor in theology. Lang chose Magdalen; the idea of being in charge of young men who might in the future achieve positions of responsibility was attractive to him and, in October , with many regrets, he left Leeds. Lang was delighted with this latter obligation; his concern for the purity of the choir's sound led him to request that visitors "join in the service silently". Some months later he had further thoughts; the strain of his dual appointment in Oxford was beginning to tell and, he claimed, "the thought of this great parish [of Portsea] and work going a-begging troubled my conscience. They were aware of his ambition and felt that he sometimes spent too much time on his outside interests such as his All Souls Fellowship, but were nevertheless impressed by his efficiency and his powers of oratory.

His remarks reached The New York Times , which warned that modern socialism was often equated with unrest, that "the cry of the demagogue is in the air" and that the Church should not heed this cry. Later he became critical of the Church's failure to use this movement effectively, calling it one of the Church's lost opportunities. Temple observed that, in contrast to the Bishop of London's sermons, listening to Lang brought on an intellectual rather than emotional pleasure: And for me, there is no doubt that this is the more edifying by far.

He cast his first Lords vote against rejection, because he was "deeply convinced of the unwisdom of the course the Lords proposed to take". Although his speech was received with respect, Lang's stance was politely reproved by the leading Conservative peer Lord Curzon. He voted against the Irish Home Rule Bill and opposed liberalisation of the divorce laws. He thereafter was active in recruiting campaigns throughout his province. He explained that it was years since the Order's hospital had been founded in Jerusalem , and years since they were driven out by Saladin. In , as chairman of the Reunion Committee at the Sixth Lambeth Conference , he promoted an "Appeal to all Christian People", described by Hastings as "one of the rare historical documents that does not get forgotten with the years". Historically, the Appeal is considered the starting-point for the more successful ecumenical efforts of later generations. Although the discussions had the blessing of Randall Davidson , the Archbishop of Canterbury, many Anglican evangelicals were alarmed by them. Ultimately, the talks foundered on the entrenched opposition of the Catholic ultramontanes. The focus of this revision, which Lang supported, was to make concessions to Anglo-Catholic rituals and practices in the Anglican service. The new Prayer Book was overwhelmingly approved by the Church's main legislative body, the Church Assembly , and by the House of Lords. Partly through the advocacy of the fervently evangelical Home Secretary , Sir William Joynson-Hicks , the revision was twice defeated in the House of Commons , in December by votes to and, in June , by to A contemporary Time magazine article described Lang as "forthright and voluble" and as looking "like George Washington".

These points were eventually embodied in the Education Act. The new king was wary of Lang, whom he had once admired. In mid it became clear that the king intended to marry Simpson either before or shortly after his impending coronation, depending on the timing of her divorce from her husband. Lang agonised over whether he could, with good conscience, administer the Coronation Oath to the king in such circumstances, bearing in mind the Church's teaching on marriage. He confided to his diary his hopes that circumstances might change, or that he might be able to persuade the king to reconsider his actions, but the king refused to meet him. All attempts to dissuade him failed, and on 11 December he gave up his throne in favour of his brother, George VI. Yet by his own will he has And when your man is down, how bold you are!
