The School is happy to consider research ideas in all areas of Health and Social Care, and will endeavour to support prospective students wherever it can reasonably do so in terms of supervision capacity and expertise.
Below are some of the research areas where members of the team have particular expertise and would be happy to take on new students:
Students may choose to continue to build their research skills by pursuing a research career in either the academic or non-academic sectors. A wide range of industries and organisations look to employ graduates with research and analytical skills and the ability to manage complex and large scale projects.
Some students may decide to move onto to further study, building on the knowledge base established during the research programme. Most commonly this would be a PhD, but there may be other options within a specific career area.
If you are already in employment, successfully gaining your Master's by Research may open up new opportunities and routes to progression.
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.
Applications should be made through the online system. This can be accessed through the 'Apply Now' button.
Students will need to submit a research proposal that outlines their proposed topic of study, the rationale for their research question, and an indication of the research methods that will be used. We strongly encourage applicants to make contact with the School’s Postgraduate Research Lead or Postgraduate Research Administrator prior to application as they will be able to provide further advice and information about potential supervisors.

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.
