Students have always been at the heart of what we do at Lincoln. We want our new and returning students to be confident that our campuses are safe places to study. Whether you're joining us as a new student or returning from your summer break to continue your studies, we want you to have all the information you need to prepare for living and learning at Lincoln this Autumn.
For the new term this Autumn, our aim is to provide an on-campus learning experience with teaching delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions. There will be social activities in place for students too - all in line with appropriate social distancing and fully adhering to any changes in government guidance. We will be taking an 'agile' approach, so we can adjust the balance of online and face-to-face activities as circumstances change.
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. 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. We look forward to welcoming you here this Autumn.
On campus, there will be some physical differences – all designed to keep our university community safe. For example, one-way systems will operate in some buildings, additional hand sanitising points will be available, and there will be markings in corridors and around the campus to aid social distancing. Teaching timetables and spaces will be adapted to enable social distancing for face-to-face classes.
The University has great outdoor spaces and we are planning to set up two large tepees where students can meet with friends, establishing more outdoor catering and seating areas, and ensuring our students can still take part in sports, societies, and other activities on campus. Of course all our plans will incorporate social distancing requirements in place at the time to help keep our community safe as we all adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our aim is to provide an on-campus learning experience with teaching delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions. We will be utilising a range of different digital tools for teaching including our dedicated online managed learning environment.
We are working to provide an online and socially distanced delivery during this COVID-19 pandemic that is engaging and allows students to interact with their tutors and each other and contribute to our academic community. As and when restrictions start to lift, we aim to deliver an increasing amount of face-to-face teaching and external engagements, depending on each course.
We know that as well as learning, university life is about meeting new people, making friends, and having fun. We are working with our Students’ Union to ensure the Lincoln experience remains fun, fulfilling, and safe when students come back to campus, including a mix of physical and virtual events.
Lincoln Students’ Union is an independent, student-led organisation run on behalf of all University of Lincoln students. Its aim is to provide the best possible student experience by hosting a wide range of services which put students at the heart of life at Lincoln.
Enrolment is the process through which you officially join the University. All students, new and continuing, must enrol at the beginning of each year of study. We are currently developing an approach to enrolment which will enable you to enrol safely this Autumn (this might be fully or partially online).
