Get Ready for Lincoln This Autumn

Whether you achieved higher than expected grades, didn't do quite as well as you hoped, or have simply changed your mind about where you want to study, the University of Lincoln could help. Adjustment and Clearing offers the chance to look for a different course if you have met or exceeded the conditions of your firm choice on UCAS, or to find one if you have not yet managed to secure a place or have changed your mind.

We are situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city, and with inspirational teaching and great industry links, you can be confident that you are joining a university that places the quality of the student experience at the heart of everything it does.

University is about learning and preparing for your future career. It is also about meeting new people, making friends, and having fun. At Lincoln, we are responding to the challenges of COVID-19 by making changes to our teaching and learning approach and to our campus, while also working to ensure that there are opportunities for the social side of your time here. We want to ensure that your Lincoln experience is as positive, exciting, and enjoyable as possible as you embark on the next phase of your life. You can find out more about what your time with us will look like below.

Latest Update on A Level Results

You will be aware of the Government announcement on Monday 17 August 2020 regarding A Level results advising students that they will be awarded Centre Assessed Grades (CAG) where these are higher than the initial grades they received on A Level results day. We recognise this is a very stressful time for students who maybe unsure as to the best way forward.

If you have an offer to study at the University of Lincoln, you are now part of the Lincoln family and we cannot wait to welcome you here this autumn. You don't need to do anything.

If you are unsure about the status of your offer, please call us on 01522 437530. The University of Lincoln has been advised that we will receive the CAG on Thursday 20 August 2020. Our aim is to guarantee places to all of those students who applied through the main cycle where the revised grades are in line with our confirmation thresholds. There are a small number of professional programmes where the provision of placements is a limiting factor. Please call us if you have any questions.

If you were offered an alternative programme, such as a Foundation programme or Cert HE, and your revised grades are in line with the University's confirmation threshold then we will upgrade your offer to the degree programme wherever possible. Please see the FAQs for further guidance.

If you have any queries, please call us on 01522 437530 or email We look forward to welcoming all our students on the next step of their adventure this autumn.

What Will My University Experience Look Like?

The current Covid-19 pandemic has meant that we are making changes to our teaching and learning approach and to our campus, to ensure that students and staff can enjoy a safe and positive learning experience here at Lincoln.

From autumn 2020 our aim is to provide an on-campus learning experience. Our intention is that teaching will be delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions. There will be social activities in place for students - all in line with appropriate social distancing and fully adhering to any changes in government guidance as our students’ safety is our primary concern.

Covid-19 has encouraged us to review our practices and, as a result, to take the opportunity to find new ways to enhance the Lincoln experience.
