Lincoln School of Creative Arts

Learn to Push Boundaries


At the Lincoln School of Creative Arts, we aim to provide an educational experience that is intellectually rigorous, practically playful, internationally relevant, and culturally diverse.

Creative Writing, Drama, Dance, Fine Art, Music, Musical Theatre, and Technical Theatre and Stage Management students learn in our purpose-built Lincoln Arts Centre, where facilities include a 450-seat theatre, fully equipped studio rehearsal spaces, and production workshops. As well as being home to our students, the public-facing arts centre hosts comedy, dance, drama, and music performances from national touring companies and artists year-round.

Fine Art students benefit from specialist facilities in the University’s £11 million Peter De Wint Building, including impressive studio and exhibition spaces, and our technical workshops. Throughout your studies, there are numerous opportunities for you to showcase your work, including our highly regarded end-of-year degree shows.

The School has close links with relevant industries and disciplines, and we are committed to providing professional skills, knowledge, and experiences throughout your studies. 

Whichever programme you choose, our practice-led approach and excellent industry links are designed to prepare you for a successful career in your chosen sector.
