A Day to Change Your Life

We can't wait to welcome you to an Open Day in 2022. They're the perfect way to get a feel for Lincoln and the amazing student experience we have become known for. Coming to an Open Day will help you gather all the information you need to help you decide what and where you would like to study. You will have the opportunity to explore our range of undergraduate programmes by chatting with our passionate course tutors and current students, tour our range of facilities and learning spaces, and view our modern, purpose-built accommodation to help you find your new home from home.

Our modern Brayford Pool campus is located in the heart of the city, which means that almost everything you'll need during your time with us is just a short walk away. A beautiful and historic city, Lincoln has a variety of attractions and amenities, from its bustling Cornhill Quarter and high street showcasing an array of well-known retailers and eateries, to the charming Bailgate and Steep Hill area where there are plenty of places for you to spend time outside of study, such as independent cafes and bookshops, and boutique stores.
