Support Available for Students

The University of Lincoln offers a range of support to help your son or daughter make their time with us as successful and enjoyable as possible.

Students can access academic and personal support from their School office, academic tutors, our Student Support and Student Wellbeing centres where there are specially trained counsellors, and from our All-Faith Chaplaincy service.

Whatever questions your son or daughter has, or support they may need, we are here to help them.

Judith Carey (Welcome) - PG

At Lincoln, we care about our students. Their success and their wellbeing are extremely important. Students join a close-knit community at Lincoln, founded on mutual respect. Staff work together to provide a stimulating and supportive environment that encourages them to grow and gain confidence. Parents also play an important role in this process; your trust and reassurance will go a long way in empowering your child to make their own decisions and to face any challenges that may arise during their studies.

Academic Support

Personal tutors provide bespoke academic guidance and support for all students. They also provide sign posting for pastoral care by Student Services and bespoke careers guidance which is supported through the work of the University Careers & Employability Team.

Academic support is also available from staff in the University’s Great Central Warehouse Library. This includes drop-in sessions and appointments with the academic writing support team and help with mathematical and statistical queries. Our team of Academic Subject Librarians can help your son or daughter to navigate the Library’s extensive resources.
