The School of Education runs postgraduate study schools each semester (October, February and July), which all doctoral students are encouraged to attend. These provide additional research training and an intellectually stimulating environment to discuss educational issues with academics and other students. Many students appreciate the opportunity to meet and socialise with other doctoral students. Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and general living expenses while attending study schools.
There may be opportunities for final year doctoral students to assist with teaching on our undergraduate programmes, subject to relevant training.
To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February or May.
In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.
The awards of MPhil and PhD may enable education professionals to progress to become academic or administrative leaders in primary, secondary, or tertiary education. Alternatively, they may lead to a career in academia or research.
For eligible students, there are more ways than ever before to fund your postgraduate study, whether you want to do a taught or research course. For those wishing to undertake a Master's course, you can apply for a loan as a contribution towards the course and living costs. Loans are also available to those who wish to undertake doctoral study. The University offers a number of scholarships and funded studentships for those interested in postgraduate study. Learn how Master's and PhD loans, scholarships, and studentships can help you fund your studies on our Postgraduate Fees and Funding pages.

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.
