We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional 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.
Students looking to further enhance their skill set can also take advantage of language courses offered by our Lincoln International Business School. These include French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Mandarin Chinese. A cost is associated with these courses. For more information, please visit www.lincoln.ac.uk/languages.
The degree offers opportunities to undertake voluntary, competitive work placements with a local council, providing experience of a professional policy environment. Please note that a limited number of places are available and placements are undertaken at the student’s own expense.
Students can apply for a study abroad year at one of our partner institutions in the USA, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, or the Netherlands during the third year of their degree. Again, places are limited and allocated competitively, subject to academic criteria. During their year abroad, students will not pay a tuition fee to either the University of Lincoln or their host university, but they will be responsible for covering their travel, accommodation, and living costs. Where applicable, visa costs will also need to be covered by the student.

Research within the School of Social and Political Sciences has helped to inform public policy. Recent research projects have explored parliamentary reform, gender and sexuality, and terrorism. This helps to inform teaching and students are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to undertake their own research.
The best way to find out what it is really like to live and learn at Lincoln is to join us for one of our Open Days. Visiting us in person is important and will help you to get a real feel for what it might be like to study here.Book Your Place

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.
