At Lincoln, the employability of our graduates is at the core of our programmes and all students have access to the University's Work Opportunities Hub.

The Hub is available to support students who are seeking to enhance their studies by engaging with a variety of work settings. This may be as part of their programme or as an activity during term time or holidays. The College is committed to promoting work opportunities to enable students to be work ready and to make informed future career choices.

Research within the College of Social Science is diverse. Students can benefit from the research expertise of academics and may have the opportunity to engage with major research projects. Psychology students can participate in initiatives such as ‘Summer Scientist’. The event involves the participation of children between the ages of three and 10 in a series of accessible games and activities which explore different aspects of cognitive development.

The Professional Development Centre offers continuing professional development for qualified practitioners working across the health and social care sector.
