Information for Parents

Is your son or daughter considering going to university? Whether they are looking at the University of Lincoln or any other university in England, we are here to help and advise you on the university application process, money matters, and other topics associated with this important decision in the lives of many young people.

Over the years our staff have supported thousands of families and individuals in making informed choices about higher education, including about the study options available at the University of Lincoln. Each year we welcome new students from a wide variety of backgrounds and family circumstances, including many who are the first in their family to go to university.

If you are a parent or guardian with questions about the benefits of higher education, the process of choosing and applying to go to university, and the transition from school or college to degree level study, you can find some useful resources on these pages. If you prefer, you can contact our dedicated Enquiries team in confidence or connect with other parents of current applicants and students via social media.

Upcoming Events for Parents

We understand that as a parent or guardian, there can be many things to consider when supporting your child on their journey into higher education.

With this in mind, our online event will provide you with an insight into a range of essential topics, ranging from Post-16 qualifications and why to consider going to university, to personal statements and student finance. 

Both events will also feature a Q+A session for any related queries that you may have.
