On many of our courses you will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with academics, some of whom are world-leading researchers, and your fellow students on projects that can make a real difference to society. We call this approach to teaching "Student as Producer" and it makes the Lincoln experience stand out.

Teaching and Learning During COVID-19

The current COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated some adaptations to ensure a safe learning experience for all students and staff. From autumn 2020 we plan to deliver an on-campus experience with appropriate social distancing. It is our intention that teaching will be delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions. Find out more here.
