Important Dates for Your Diary

Each course is different - some will have placements, coursework, assessments, dissertations or projects instead of examinations. These are the key dates for your diary throughout the academic year. 

Students' individual timetables are available on the University of Lincoln’s virtual learning environment Blackboard.

Which courses will be starting teaching earlier?

Some of our programmes need to start sooner than 12 October, primarily due to professional requirements and practical placements. We will be making arrangements for students on these programmes to be able to move into University accommodation earlier. For students in private sector accommodation, we will ensure that providers are aware of the earlier start dates. The affected courses are listed within our Coronavirus FAQs.
