Support at Lincoln

Your Journey With Us

At the University of Lincoln, we take great pride in placing our students at the heart of everything we do. We understand that leaving home, starting university, and embarking on your future career is a big step, but at Lincoln, it’s not one you have to take alone.

We offer a whole host of support services to span the entire student journey so that you can access the help you need, when you need it. From expert advice in money matters and mental health, to guidance in academic writing and preparing for your first graduate job interview, we’re here to help. Our Student Support Centre brings many of these services together, providing a central point of contact that can link you with the appropriate team. You can find out more about the services available on our Student Services website.

The University is also committed to providing a high level of mental health support and was one of the first universities to join the Student Minds University Mental Health Charter Programme.

Cost of Living Support

Recent increases in the cost of living are affecting everyone. To help ease some of the uncertainty you may be feeling, the University of Lincoln and the Students’ Union have created a dedicated hub which provides a range of helpful information and advice on how to help you manage your finances, and the support available if you’re struggling.

Preparing for Your Career

Our Careers and Employability Team is here to support you throughout your time with us and beyond. They are on hand to offer individual support and advice, answering your queries and helping you to develop practical skills, such as building your CV and preparing for interviews. While many of our undergraduate courses enable students to undertake work experience as part of their degree, the team can also help you to find relevant work experience aligned to your career aspirations.

A variety of employability advice and support workshops are delivered during the academic year, along with a range of events such as the annual University of Lincoln Careers Fair and employer sessions, which give students the opportunity to engage with top graduate recruiters from across many industry areas.

The support that the University provides, both in an academic and wellbeing sense, ensures that you are able to get the best experience while at Lincoln.
