"It was an unforgettable experience at Lincoln. The first thing I read as soon as I entered the University campus for the very first time was 'Wherever you are from, you are home!' and it always felt like a home in Lincoln.”Vaibhav Shah, MSc Sport Science graduate

Dr Sandy Willmott - Programme Leader
Dr Willmott's interests and experience cover both the use of technology for movement analysis in humans, and other animals, and the effective integration of athletes, coaches and sport scientists in improving performance. His research specialisms include the biomechanics of paddle sports, and of swinging motions such as those found in hockey and golf. A strong proponent of seeking diverse opportunities for development, he has undertaken collaborative research in Japan, the USA, and Mexico.Academic Staff List

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.
