How You Study

Research students will be allocated two academic supervisors and the College Research Degrees Board will monitor their progress throughout the programme. Students will be encouraged to participate in our research seminar series and in the University’s Doctoral School and training programmes. The School will also support students in applying for funding to attend conferences, and in publishing their work in conference proceedings and refereed journals.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of students’ time will be spent in independent study and research. They will have meetings with their academic supervisors, however the regularity of these will vary depending on their own individual requirements, subject area, and the stage of their programme.

What You Need to Know

We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs. For research programmes this includes research fees and research support fees.

How you are assessed

The MSc by Research involves writing a Master's thesis under the supervision of a member of academic staff. Final assessment is by an oral examination (viva voce) of a research thesis. Students are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.

Programme Specific Funding and Bursaries

The Siemens Postgraduate Engineering Award

Global industry leader Siemens is proud to work in collaboration with the University of Lincoln to develop the next generation of engineering talent.

The Siemens Postgraduate Engineering Award will pay the full tuition fees for the successful candidate to complete the one year taught Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Management, or the one year MSc by Research Engineering.

This award is open to students who are in receipt of an offer to study on a postgraduate programme within the Lincoln School of Engineering commencing in October 2020. It is open to students currently studying on a Siemens Bursary, although the final (fourth) year’s bursary payment would be terminated should the student be successful in securing the Siemens Postgraduate Award.

The award will cover the full cost of tuition fees due for one academic year when you enrol on the University of Lincoln, School of Engineering one year taught Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Management, or Engineering MSc by Research.

There is an expectation that the successful candidate will be assessed for a graduate position with Siemens following the successful completion of their programme.
