Our military programmes are designed to allow serving members of all three services, as well as their MOD civilian colleagues, to achieve academic recognition from their extensive work experience and formal training. Ex-serving members of the three services may also be entitled to enrol through the military programme route, provided their enrolment date on the degree is within six months of their last day of service.
An approved learning provider under the Armed Forces Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) scheme, the University of Lincoln has invested more than ten years of research and development to evolve our military degree programmes.
Recognising the significant operational experience and training of military and civil service personnel, the programmes are open to all suitably qualified and experienced officers, NCOs and in certain circumstances, other ranks.
Typically, students take 18 to 24 months to complete their studies. However, flexibility is a key feature and students may formally interrupt their studies for a period of up to 2 years in light of OOA or other commitments.
