Choosing the right course at the right university are big decisions which is why the University of Lincoln holds a series of Offer Holder Days each year to give applicants the opportunity to ‘test drive’ their chosen course and get a better understanding of what’s it’s like to study at Lincoln.
Intended for applicants who have received an offer to study in Lincoln, our Offer Holder Days allow prospective students to meet their tutors and potential future classmates, and to speak to some of our current students as well. They also offer a chance to explore campus, meet tutors and other people who will be studying with you and to ask questions of current students. Your visit will give you a chance to decide if Lincoln is right for you.
Each school curate their own programme for the day, providing you with a bespoke day, which centres on activities and tasters relevant to your course. There will also be plenty of opportunities to talk to academic staff and students from your chosen course during the day. Your course activities run in the afternoon leaving you the morning to find out more about the Lincoln experience.
In the morning there is time for you to register, attend general talks about university life, and take a tour of the campus and view our accommodation. There will also be our Information Zone where you can find out more about the support and services that will be available to you as a student at Lincoln. Attending in the morning is ideal if you weren't able to join us for an Open Day or you still have some questions about accommodation or student life.
Offer Holder Days take place between 10.00 and 15.30. Below is an outline of your day. Guests including parents, friends and family are more than welcome to join you.
