You are required to complete two simple steps before you arrive, using Blackboard, the University's student portal (before 13 September 2018):
All new students accessing Blackboard for the first time need to change their default password to one of their choice. Information on how to do this can be found in the Getting Started leaflet in your Enrolment Pack.
Updating Your Personal Details
Once you have accessed Blackboard, you need to click on the ‘Personal Details’ section on your Blackboard homepage.
You are required to upload a photo so that we can produce your ID card in advance, ready for you to collect after your Introduction Talk.
Uploading Your Photo
Please follow the steps in the Getting Started leaflet enclosed in your enrolment pack. Once you have done this, you will receive email confirmation.
Important: Your photograph must be a passport style headshot photo only.
After completing Steps One and Two above, you will be able to access the Getting Started generic and programme level resources.
Programme level resources are in a Getting Started School site. Your enrolment letter gives you this information.
Your password is the same one you used to access your Blackboard homepage when you checked your personal details.
In your offer letter you will have received information about your induction. As part of your induction you will need to attend the Student Support Centre to complete the enrolment process and formally enrol.
As a research student, you can enrol on your programme of study either on a part-time or full-time basis. For the commencing year of the programme, you may enrol at any point during the academic year and the full set fee is payable.
You will then be required to enrol on the anniversary of your first enrolment. The relevant set full time or part time fee is payable by all continuing students on re-enrolment.
Fees will vary depending upon the programme of study, and your student status. To check the fees, please visit http://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home

A student’s anniversary of enrolment will be re-calculated according to the length of the period of interruption.
Tuition fee liability in the interruption year will be calculated at 100% of the full tuition fee rate for that year of enrolment.
Students interrupting shall not be liable for tuition fees until their re-calculated anniversary of enrolment.
