Welcome to International Year 1 Marketing and Tourism

Our degree preparation programmes are designed to help students to develop the English language, academic study skills, and subject-specific knowledge required for degree-level study.

The International Year One in Marketing and Tourism is designed to enable progression onto a number of named Bachelor's programmes within Lincoln International Business School. Students study academic modules in data analytics, the business environment, marketing, finance and organisational behaviour; alongside English Language.

Degree Programme Progression

This programme starts in September 2022.

After successfully completing the International Year One programme and obtaining the required grade, students will have the option to progress onto the second year of one of the following degree programmes at the University of Lincoln:

BA (Hons) Advertising and Marketing
BSc (Hons) Events Management
BA (Hons) International Tourism Management
BA (Hons) Marketing Management
BA (Hons) Sports Business Management

How You Study

Students will commence their programme of studies as a separate cohort within the International College, but will be provided with opportunities to join with the wider LIBS community during the first term. This term aims to build confidence in English alongside developing technical and subject-specific knowledge.

In the second term, students will be fully integrated within the Lincoln International Business School academic community, studying academic modules alongside other students, while retaining the support of the International College. During this second term students can also choose an elective module, depending on your intended progression route; this will give you a taste of specific subjects whilst not constraining your Bachelor's progression.

Students will also be encouraged to engage with the informal curriculum and co-curricular activities associated with Lincoln International Business School, such as Global Opportunities and careers support.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
