Workshops and Demonstrations
There are extensive model-making workshops throughout the course, offering students the opportunity of making both full-size and scale developmental and presentational models using traditional workshop techniques, as well as digital fabrication facilities. This is complemented by a wide range of computer programmes and access to video and photography facilities for exploring spatial qualities and advancing technical competence.
Study visits are organised by the studios and may include project site visits, excursions to exhibitions, lectures, debates, cultural events, or meetings with professionals. At least one visit is organised each year within the School which is open to all courses and stages.
In recent years, groups have travelled around the UK, to Cambridge and Edinburgh, to European destinations including Brussels, Venice, Barcelona, and Paris, as well as further afield to India and Sri Lanka. In one study trip, students spent a week in Poland studying urban housing problems alongside a group from the Wroclaw University of Technology.
Please see the Fees tab for more information on the potential additional costs associated which these trips.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching
At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.
We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.
