How You Study as an Undergraduate

Whichever course you study, at Lincoln you can benefit from a variety of teaching methods, such as lectures from leading academics with international reputations in their field, seminar discussions with your peers, one-to-one time with your tutor, opportunities to work with academics on real research projects, hands-on practical workshops, and extracurricular skills development programmes. 

Independent Learning

University-level study enables you to take greater responsibility for your own learning than you will have experienced previously. Independent study may include reading and preparation for timetabled teaching sessions, follow-up work and wider reading, working on assessment activities, group work, or revision. This process can enhance your independence and enable you to develop life-long transferable skills. Find more information about how you will learn on the course pages for your chosen subject.

Teaching and Learning During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has required adaptations to ensure a safe learning experience for all students and staff in 2020/21. Teaching has been delivered through a blended approach combining some face-to-face sessions and online sessions, in line with Government regulations and with safety measures such as social distancing in place. Find out more here.
