Welcome Back from Lincoln Medical School

All of us at the University look forward to your return, as both students of Lincoln Medical School and citizens of Lincoln. We are committed to helping you keep safe and to ensuring that you make the most of the opportunities that studying for a Nottingham degree offers. We know that, in turn, you will support your University community and neighbours in the city by following all Government guidelines and local safety measures that may be in place.

Our plans to welcome you back to campus will continue to develop as new Government guidelines and regulations emerge, and we will contact you near the start of the academic year with further information and any changes to our approach.

In the meantime, we have summarised a few things below regarding information on our arrangements to welcome you back to campus in September 2021. Please use the drop-down menus available below.

Start of Term

For students progressing into Year 1 of Medicine from the Foundation Year, the start of term is Monday 27 September 2021, along with the new Year 1 cohort. Teaching will commence on Monday 4 October 2021.

For students progressing into Year 2 of Medicine, the start of term is Monday 27 September 2021, with teaching starting that week.

Most Lincoln courses will start from 4 October 2021.

Online Registration

You will receive an email notification from the University of Nottingham at the end of August which will contain further details of how to complete the online registration process in order to re-register onto your course. All returning students are required to register at the start of each academic year.

Accommodation

Our Accommodation teams look forward to welcoming you back to Lincoln and helping you to feel settled and safe in your home – whether it is on campus or in the city.

We know that many students will already have plans or bookings for their term time accommodation for 2021-22. Where you are going to be living in University-managed accommodation, we will be adjusting the contract start and end dates to reflect your term dates.

The University of Lincoln will also be working with private sector providers and landlords to explain differences in term dates and ask them to make sure that your accommodation contract terms will ensure that you have accommodation available for the whole of the 2021-22 academic year.

Students moving into campus accommodation such as halls of residence will receive an email from our Accommodation Team by mid-July with more information about moving back to campus.

If you have any questions or queries about accommodation you can contact the Lincoln Accommodation Team via email at accommodation@lincoln.ac.uk. It will help the team deal with your enquiry if you indicate that you are a student of Lincoln Medical School in the subject title.

Welcome Back from Lincoln Medical Society

Welcome back to LMS! We hope you’ve had a lovely summer and enjoyed this past year at Lincoln Medical School. We know how difficult this past year has been for our members. Being unable to meet each other, socialise and really get to know one another took its toll. But, we as a committee are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to ‘catch up’ all together as a student body and make up for the lost time and memories. We are proud of how far the Society has come and we are excited for implement our plans in the coming academic year.

Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, we know you’ll understand that we cannot confirm what events and socials we will be hosting this year, but rest assured, we will still be here to meet your social and educational needs as best as we can. In these uncertain times we feel it is particularly important that everyone feels fully supported. The Students’ Union Advice Centre has a team of trained Advisors who can provide you with free impartial and confidential advice, support, and representation independent of the University. The Advice Centre is open from Monday to Friday and can offer you assistance with academic, financial, housing and welfare queries either through in-person meetings, phone/Teams appointments or email correspondence. Should you ever need any support from the Students’ Union Advice Centre, you can contact them by emailing advice@lincolnsu.com, booking an online appointment here, or by giving them a ring on 01522 837000.

Health and Welfare

We know that alongside the excitement of returning to University, some of you might be apprehensive about leaving home or mixing with large groups of people again. Our established Student Support and Student Wellbeing Centres remain available to support you with your health and to discuss any concerns you might have, as well as the support from your School if you wish to discuss with them.

A range of resources and contact details for Student Services can be found here https://studentservices.lincoln.ac.uk/.

As always, your personal tutor will be a key point of contact for both academic and pastoral support - in person or online. Do get in touch with them if you have not already done so.

The latest information about access to facilities and planning for the 2021-22 academic year is available on our Coronovirus pages.
