Great Reasons to Go Summer

The University recognises that a semester or whole year abroad is a huge undertaking and isn’t for everyone. A great alternative is a summer school at one of our partner universities or through an organisation such as the British Council. Summer opportunities are generally a mix of social and cultural activities which can involve taught classes, industry visits, and practical sessions, as well as cultural activities and trips. These may be restricted to students on certain programmes or open to all students. Please contact the Global Opportunities team if you are interested in short-term summer opportunities.


Successful applicants can apply for Santander Funding through Global Opportunities. These funds can be used towards the registration fee, accommodation and travel. If you wish to apply for a scholarship, please email GO@lincoln.ac.uk.
