As we move forward into 2021, the changing situation with the Coronavirus pandemic continues to offer new challenges. We appreciate the difficulties this is presenting for students at this time especially those applying to University and we want to reassure you that the University of Lincoln is working to ensure that no student is disadvantaged in their application to us by issues caused by the pandemic, or by recent changes in national policy around summer examinations and assessments.
