Take a look around the Hull campus
Derek Crothall Building - Hull The University of Lincoln’s Hull campus is holding an Open Day where people can learn more about its social care courses.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take a look around the facilities at the George Street campus, talk to staff about courses available and learn more about financial support on offer to students.

The Open Day will take place on Saturday 25 April, between 1-3pm.

Programmes available at Hull include degree courses like the full-time BSc (Hons) Social Work and the part-time BSc Employment Based Social Work. Part-time qualifications for learners new to social care are also available in the Certificate in Social Care.

Full-time students may be eligible for an NHS bursary of up to £4,575 per year.

The University’s School of Health and Social Care is at the forefront of national social care education. Its academics can offer a wealth of practical experience gathered from working for local authorities, health trusts and voluntary organisations. Several of them have written books which underpin the social care curriculum in colleges and universities around the country.

Malcolm Golightley, Head of the School of Health and Social Care at the University of Lincoln, said: “This Open Day is a relaxed and informal way to learn more about the courses available at the Hull campus. Social care is particularly suited to mature students who have gained life experience in other sectors who are looking for a new career where they can make a real contribution to the quality of people’s lives.”

People wanting to attend the Open Day should register their interest by contacting Emma Jubbs on (01522) 886286 or by emailing ejubbs@lincoln.ac.uk. Food and refreshments will be available on the day.
