Welcome to the Lincoln School of Design

Through instilling in our design students a thoughtful and critical approach to the way they think about design and apply their creative skills, we aim to prepare them to be leaders in the creative industries.

As part of a vibrant and innovative university, our students have the opportunity to mix with peers outside of the visual arts, socially, and through multi-disciplinary teamwork. We are a design school within a dynamic university, with all the considerable benefits this brings. Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city, the University of Lincoln has established an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research.

Our students annually win international design awards, such as the RSA Student Design Awards and D&AD New Blood Awards. Our innovative ‘Student as Producer’ initiative offers students the opportunity to engage in real academic research and external professional projects.

All of this design activity takes place in two purpose-built facilities with specialist studios, labs, and workshops. We aim to provide spaces in which our students can explore design, share their ideas through practise-based learning, and critically appraise the world of design. This is what attending university is all about!

You can discover more about the Lincoln School of Design by meeting our students and staff. We look forward to welcoming you to an Open Day or degree show where you can experience our School and facilities for yourself.
