Take the next step with a postgraduate masterclass
Sport Science equipment The University of Lincoln is offering a series of free masterclasses in more than 20 different subject areas, giving visitors the chance to get a flavour of postgraduate study.

If you have ever considered undertaking a Master’s level qualification to enhance your skills, build your knowledge or to boost your career, the event on Saturday, 8th March is an excellent opportunity to find out more.

The series of free taster workshops and seminars will span subjects across the arts, sciences and social sciences.

Claire Mann, University of Lincoln Postgraduate Recruitment Officer, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for people to come and see what the University of Lincoln offers in terms of postgraduate study, and how it could progress their career. Postgraduate learning is the next step in education and is open to anyone whatever their age.”

Dave Bramston, Principal Lecturer in the School of Art and Design, is leading a workshop in Entrepreneurial Design where visitors will connect with international partner organisations to form a real-time global design team.

Current projects being conducted in the studios of this Master’s programme include the design of a 'Soundmaker' to promote social interaction in Chinese park areas and also a range of houseware products for Canadian company Umbra.

In the Sport Science masterclass you can take on the role of a sport scientist analysing athletic performance using state-of-the-art testing equipment, incorporating biomechanics, physiology and psychology.

Dr Sandy Willmott, Programme Leader, MSc Sport Science, said: “The MSc Sport Science adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, with an emphasis on applied work and community engagement. A diverse portfolio of assessments prepares graduates for a wide range of sport-related careers that include applied consultancy, research and teaching.”

The Engineering seminar will focus on the 21st Century’s most pressing issue - the generation of power and energy on a sustainable basis.

You will consider current and future energy sources to explain why frac’ing may be considered sustainable and, in doing so, will experience disciplines required at MSc level in the collection of appropriate data and their synthesis into defendable arguments.

Prof David Rae, Professor of Enterprise and Innovation at the Lincoln Business School, will be providing a general introduction to a range of programmes, including Marketing, Finance, Human Resource Management, Logistics and the newly revalidated MSc International Business and MBA. He will also be running a taster session on Creative Leadership and Entrepreneurship.
