Find Out More About Your Subject 

If you have received an offer of a place to study at the University of Lincoln, we will invite you to attend a day where you can learn more about your chosen programme and the University. It is a chance to meet your tutors and other people who will be studying with you and to ask questions of current students.

Offer Holder Days for 2018 have now finished. Offer Holder Days for those wishing to join us for 2019/20 entry will begin in November 2018. Details will be available about these events later in the year.

Offer Holder Day Testimonial

"The Offer Holder Day I attended was invaluable for getting a feel for exactly what the university experience was going to be like at Lincoln. The day offered me the opportunity to meet my future course mates, speak to academics and get my first taste of how I will be learning during my time studying in Lincoln. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of studying here in Lincoln!"

Daniel Amos - History MA

Top Tips

Ask Questions

Student Ambassadors will be available across the campus during the Offer Holder Day to help you and to answer any questions you might have.

View the Accommodation

Choosing where to live while studying is a big decision. At the University of Lincoln, our Accommodation Office can help all first-year students to find a great place to live. We recommend viewing our on-campus accommodation during your visit, as well as taking the time to visit some of our University-approved accommodation providers within walking distance of the campus. This will help you to apply for accommodation when applications open for this in March.

Discover Lincoln

The University of Lincoln’s award-winning city centre campus provides a modern student-centred environment, where everything you need is either on campus or a short walk away. The campus is found in the heart of the city on the Brayford waterfront. Across the marina, there is a wide range of eating, drinking and entertainment venues available.

The winning combination of a vibrant city centre and a historic cathedral quarter, both with a broad range of cultural activities and venues, make Lincoln a fantastic environment to live and study in. Lincoln Cathedral overlooks the city and is one of the finest medieval buildings in Europe. We believe the 15-minute walk up the famous Steep Hill (named as one of Britain’s prettiest streets by The Telegraph in 2016) is well worth the climb.
