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.
All full-time students on this course have the opportunity to take a year-long work placement after the second year. Students are expected to source their own placement, and tutors can provide support during the process if required. Those who choose to undertake a placement do not pay tuition fees for that year but will need to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.
There are also opportunities for relevant work experience and career development as part of the degree course itself, as well as through various other Lincoln International Business School and University schemes. For more information, please visit LIBS work placements pages.
This course also includes the option to develop language skills at no extra cost with opportunities to study French, German, Business English, Spanish or Mandarin Chinese.
Students can take an optional field trip within each year. Previous destinations have included Dublin, Prague, Budapest, and Sri Lanka. On these trips, students visited many cultural landmarks, engaged with partner universities and had the chance to experience the events and nightlife within each country. Supported by two members of the teaching team, the trips can help to enrich course content and provide an added set of experiences within each year.
Students who select the optional third-year module Crisis and Disaster Management can choose to travel to Sri Lanka as part of a study visit. The cost of this trip is approximately £900, which students can pay in instalments, plus food costs. Students are responsible for their subsistence costs on this visit, which is not assessed.
Students may be able to take part in optional study visits throughout the course to events such as exhibitions. Those who choose to attend can expect to pay between £20 and £40 per visit, which may be used for food, drinks, and admission fees to events and venues.
“The course was innovative, fun, and really interesting throughout each year. We gained theoretical knowledge of events management whilst getting to plan, host, and create our own live events."Amy Wood, BSc (Hons) Events Management graduate

Global connections and the ability to strike deals across national boundaries are at the heart of the worldwide economy.
Millions of tourists are on the move every year and the global tourism industry is big business for those skilled in providing the perfect experience.
Sport can be a lucrative business for those at the pinnacle, but this sporting and commercial success is dependent on teams working behind the scenes.
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.
