Projects and Placements

The University can provide opportunities for students to work on real projects. Students and graduates can be matched with specific company projects, such as developing new channels to market, innovating products or services to stimulate sales, software implementation, designing e-commerce systems or websites, business process re-engineering or market research to better inform decision-making.

Employer Events

Our Employer Events programme runs throughout term time. They may involve large graduate recruiters such as Coca Cola, Siemens and the civil service, as well as job search and employability workshops, industry-specific sessions and general information and advice. You can find out more information, or book a place for an event, at:

Employability Mentoring

Students can join the Employability Mentoring Scheme, a project which pairs students with senior staff and professionals from leading regional companies. Students have the opportunity to gain support and guidance via one-to-one meetings and shadow their mentor at work, enabling them to gain a real insight into their chosen sector before they graduate and start applying for jobs.

Graduate internships

Launch your career by working as an intern once you graduate and make valuable contacts in your chosen profession. At Lincoln, graduates can be linked to companies who offer these opportunities.
