Sign off for the summer at the Lincoln Summer Festival.
Celebrate the lifting of lockdown restrictions this summer with an exciting mix of social, educational, and skills-related opportunities, and events - including student-led activities - all making the best of our beautiful campus and city.
Running through June and July, the Lincoln Summer Festival is a collaboration between the University and the Students’ Union which aims to bring our community back together on campus as we pass through the next steps of the Government’s roadmap.
With live music, entertainment, film and food, there’ll be opportunities to meet up physically and virtually with friends and to connect with new people. Enjoy a variety of sports, whether as a spectator or participant, or try out arts and crafts, fine food and cookery, or meditation to promote health and wellbeing.
The festival will be underpinned by range of academic and employability skills development activities, designed for students across all academic disciplines and levels to work with peers and tutors, build skills and confidence, and enhance CVs – all of which can contribute towards The Lincoln Award, which you can sign up for or get completed during the festival via the fast track support available.
Coinciding with the annual Lincoln Festival of Creativity, students will be at the heart of it all with on-campus showcases of students’ work, performance opportunities, and insights into university research.
For students in University-managed accommodation, contract terms will be extended where needed free of charge for an extra month to enable more students to stay in Lincoln for the festival.

The University of Lincoln's Global Opportunities Team are offering 50 fully funded virtual international internships worth up to £600 each.
While traveling in person is restricted, a virtual internship offers a fantastic opportunity for students to gain an international and intercultural experience while boosting their academic and personal development, building transferable skills, and broadening their cultural horizons.
An individual internship will last from approximately 4 - 12 weeks in length and can fit around your existing commitments - all you will need to get involved is access to a personal computer or laptop and a broadband connection.
To find out more, register to attend the session taking place on Tuesday 29 June at 2:00pm at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/virtual-internship-showcase-tickets-158707854465. You’ll hear from the organisations which deliver the internships, students who have already completed an internship, and the Global Opportunities Team.
