Over 100 Masters courses on offer at free Postgraduate Taster Day
Students at Lincoln People with a love for learning will be able to choose from over 100 subjects on offer at a free Postgraduate Taster Day in Lincoln.

The University of Lincoln is inviting members of the public to experience some of its most popular Masters level courses by hosting a series of subject masterclasses. Covering academic disciplines ranging from the arts, sciences, social sciences and business, the taster day aims to spark the interest of potential postgraduates.  

The Postgraduate Taster Day takes place on Wednesday 18th October, from 1pm-5pm, at Lincoln's main Brayford Pool campus.

Claire Mann, Postgraduate Recruitment Manager at the University of Lincoln, said: "The introduction of national funding to support postgraduates, has made Masters level study more accessible not only if you are in the final year of your degree, but for recent graduates and professionals looking to advance their career.  

"Studies have shown the many advantages a postgraduate qualification can offer – the ‘postgraduate premium' is estimated to be worth £200,000 over a lifetime* – but the benefits are about much more than earning potential.

"The University of Lincoln's Postgraduate Taster Days give the public an opportunity to speak one on one with academics and explore the possibility of post-graduate learning."

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the School of Health and Social Care's newly launched MSc Physiotherapy course, which is currently available for pre-registration. The course focuses on a whole body approach to promoting and maintaining patient wellbeing with the masterclass sessions offering an insight into current physiotherapy practices.

For aspiring psychologists, academics from the School of Psychology will be on hand to offer advice on specialist courses including MSc Developmental Psychology and MSc Forensic Psychology. The School of Education will also run sessions on its PGCE qualifications for those looking to pursue a career in teaching.  

The Lincoln Business School will run sessions on its MBA Master of Business Administration qualification, a one year course designed to enhance earning potential by providing a global perspective to future senior industry leaders.  

An advice lounge will also be available throughout the day offering information on the application process as well as the funding options available.
