† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
For eligible students, there are more ways than ever before to fund your postgraduate study, whether you want to do a taught or research course. For those wishing to undertake a Master's course, you can apply for a loan as a contribution towards the course and living costs. Loans are also available to those who wish to undertake doctoral study. The University offers a number of scholarships and funded studentships for those interested in postgraduate study. Learn how Master's and PhD loans, scholarships, and studentships can help you fund your studies on our Postgraduate Fees and Funding pages.
The programme seeks to engage students in collaborations with events industry partners and take a lead role in planning, organising, and delivering live events to a specific brief negotiated with the client.
The School benefits from established links with events industry practitioners. Contributions from guest speakers with specific event specialisms have included Liz Bannister (nee Rice), Director at Metro Broadcast which specialises in events, video, and broadcast projects within the corporate event arena in the UK and overseas.
Extensive opportunities for selected field trips are available on this programme and are mostly negotiated with students themselves. Previously students have visited The Clothes Show and high profile sporting institutions such as Leicester Tigers RFC. Any compulsory visits will be supported by departmental funding. Where trips are optional, students may be asked to make a modest contribution towards expenses.
As part of your global education at the Lincoln International Business School, we are offering students the opportunity to undertake funded international trips to exciting overseas destinations. Postgraduate students have the opportunity to travel to destinations in the UK, Europe, the USA, and the United Arab Emirates.
These field trips combine academic study with first-hand experiences of language, culture, and industry, allowing you to put theory into practice. We've designed themes specifically for postgraduate students that align with learning areas such as Industry (4.0), Financial Services, and Visitor Economy.
