† 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.
Please note that international applications for taught postgraduate programmes starting in September 2022 have now closed.
In order to further enhance their employability skills, students also have the option to complete a Professional Practice Year as part of their course. Students will be responsible for sourcing their own paid placements but will be supported by dedicated employability specialists. The placement will start after the student has completed the taught segment of the course and, at the end of the placement, the student will return to the University to complete their final project. Please note: students need to choose the Professional Practice pathway from the outset when applying for the course, and it is only available for an October start.
Students who are accepted onto the Professional Practice programme will attend a consultation with a Programme Leader and Placement Coordinator early in their first term to discuss timelines, processes, and requirements.
The Professional Practice year is not assessed. However, students will be required to present a placement project linked to their experience. Students who successfully complete their degree with a year in Professional Practice will receive the award title MSc Management with Project Management (Professional Practice). Those who do not will receive the MSc Management award, or equivalent exit award.
There are no tuition fees for the Professional Practice year but students will need to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.
Regardless of your current level of project management knowledge or experience, this programme will give you the chance to gain more confidence to better plan complex projects, lead and inspire teams, manage difficult stakeholders and cope with even the most unpleasant or unexpected risks. You will also have the opportunity to develop practical skills relating to the design, planning and execution of projects.
A highlight of the programme is an activity-based team challenge event as part of the module Leadership Development, which will allow students to practice and receive feedback on their leadership skills. Please note: our ability to undertake the team challenge event is dependent on government guidance at the time with regard to travel and social-distancing. An appropriate alternative experience will be provided in the event that the team challenge cannot take 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.
