Induction Week

You can choose whether to attend your induction at our campus in the heart of the historic city of Lincoln, or attend online.

As an on-campus attendee you will meet your fellow students and get to know your course tutors, while learning more about your programme and the university. As an online attendee, you will have the opportunity to watch video recordings of induction week presentations through our virtual learning environment, Blackboard, and learn all you need to know from your tutors and support team via email, telephone, Skype, or other technology by arrangement.

While You Study

We understand that structure is the key to degree success, which is why our programmes are carefully designed to progress your learning in a way that keeps you on track.

Not only will you be supported to achieve your degree by your Programme Leader and Module Tutors, you will benefit from the dedicated course Librarian’s expertise, and receive technical assistance from our ICT Services team should you need it.
