“This popular degree aims to enable students to gain a broad range of research and practice skills.”Nigel Horner, Senior Academic in the School of Health and Social Care
Students are encouraged to take part in three work experience opportunities during their studies. There is the option to undertake a work placement year between their second and third year, which may be abroad or in the UK. Students who choose to undertake a work placement are not required to pay tuition fees for that year but will be required to pay their travel, accommodation, and general living costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
