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.
This course is accredited by the PPA (Professional Publishers Association), the lead body for training and development in the magazine industry.
We have many media outlets at Lincoln, where your journalism work can be seen by a potential world-wide audience. LSJ News is the news and features hub used by all our students to showcase their course work, The Linc is a student-run news site, Siren Radio is our campus-based community radio station, and Cygnet PR is a student-run PR agency.
Work experience forms an important part of the course. Previous students in the School of English and Journalism have gained placements on well-known magazine brands, or in areas such as public relations and copywriting. The School has a key partnership with a local magazine publisher. This enables students to gain magazine work experience. Please note that students are expected to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs while undertaking placements.
There are a number of extracurricular activities available to help students develop their skills on campus. These include the student newspaper, news website, and community and student radio stations, Siren Radio and Brayford Radio.
With more than 7,000 magazine titles in the UK, there are various roles and opportunities available for talented magazine journalists. Previous graduates in the School of English and Journalism have gone on to work at national and local magazine brands across a variety of sectors in the consumer, B2B, and customer publishing sectors.
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.
