According to Student Recruitment Manager Karen Raynes the open day is aimed at answering any questions students may have about the government’s new variable system of tuition fees and about university life in general.
“To help students support themselves while studying the University of Lincoln is offering varying amounts of funding depending on the course you wish to study, your A level grades and your household income.
“All successful applicants will receive a £500 scholarship for each completed year of study, and you could be eligible to receive up to £1,600 every year, none of which has to be paid back.”
In addition to information about fees and funding there will be presentations on all aspects of student life including university accommodation, student support services, the Students’ Union and fees and funding.
Visitors will also be able to find out about the subjects they’re interested in and what it’s like to study at the university by talking to academic tutors and current students.
The open day is from 9.30am until 4.00pm and visitors are welcome to turn up at any time during the day. Visitors interested in animal or equine courses should begin their day at Riseholme.
