Teachers and careers advisers can catch up with the pace of change at the University of Lincoln at special event on campus next week.


The university is to stage a careers advisers’ and teachers’ information day on Wednesday 24th October.


The aim of the event is to introduce teachers and careers advisers to the new University of Lincoln and give them a taste of the range of courses on offer in Lincoln and Hull.

The day will consist of forensic science, media production, computing and art and design workshops and subject sessions focusing on what careers businesses and management courses can lead to.


The university’s own careers service will explain how undergraduates are guided into the world of work and visitors will have an opportunity to talk to current students and academics over a buffet lunch.


Staff will also give presentations on the university’s new name and identity and outline future developments at Brayford Pool and in Hull city centre.


“It’s important that teachers and careers advisers keep abreast of changes at the university as our portfolio of courses is expanding all the time,” said spokesman Jez Ashberry.


“Next week’s event will give them the opportunity to look behind the scenes at the university and will provide them with up-to-date information which they can pass on to their students.”


The information day will run from 10am until 4pm. To book a place contact Jacqueline Mayer on 01522 886046 or email jmayer@lincoln.ac.uk
