Evening classes enable more people to learn at Lincoln


The University of Lincoln is launching a new programme of evening classes to give people tempted by higher education the chance to try university.


Learning at Lincoln will enable part-time learners to attend teaching sessions at times convenient to them – and gain credits which could go on to form the foundation for a full degree.


It is geared towards people with busy working or family lives who are keen to study at university but may not have the time during the day for conventional full-time or part-time courses.


An open evening where potential students can find out more will be held at the University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool Campus on Wednesday 17 September.


Learning at Lincoln students can take evening classes in a variety of subjects – Law, English and History, Politics and Psychology. They can mix and match modules to find the combination that best suits them.


Throughout their studies, students will benefit from equivalent support and facilities available to full-time students at the University’s Brayford Pool Campus.


Upon successful completion of the programme, and subject to meeting entry requirements, students can continue working towards a diploma or a degree.


Dr Howard Stevenson, the Learning at Lincoln Coordinator, said: “There are many people who would like to get into higher education but whose circumstances make the prospect of a full-time degree daunting. They might work full-time or have young children who depend on them during the day.


“Learning at Lincoln is designed to give just these kinds of people the opportunities they might otherwise miss. It has been tailored to be flexible so students can make the course fit around them and those who successfully complete the programme can go on to pursue a full-time or part-time degree.”


The University of Lincoln is holding a Learning at Lincoln open and enrolment evening on Wednesday 17 September, starting at 6.30pm. It will take place in the University’s Main Administrative Building on the Brayford Pool Campus.
