The Doctoral School

The Doctoral School provides a focal point for our vibrant community of postgraduate researchers, offering support and guidance, and a range of opportunities for academic, professional, and personal development through its Researcher Development Programme.

Postgraduate Research Showcase

Our annual postgraduate conference gives you chance to network and discuss your work with fellow researchers across all disciplines, and features a programme of speakers, postgraduate presentations, a poster showcase, and a plenary session.

Career Development

To help you maximise the value of your qualification, you will have access to our dedicated Careers and Employability Team throughout your studies. With in-depth knowledge and expertise of the labour market, our team of qualified advisors can offer one-to-one support and careers guidance to help you find the right path. Our Schools may also provide training and research opportunities so you can develop those crucial academic and professional skills to help you to stand out from the crowd.

The University is a signatory of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, which is an agreement between funders and employers of research staff to improve the employment and support for research careers in UK higher education.

Great Central Warehouse Library

Our Library is open 24/7 at peak times and provides access to hundreds of databases and specialist resources. You will also find guides to academic referencing and writing and practical support via webinars, workshops, and one-to-one sessions to help you with your learning and development.

Your Health and Wellbeing

The health and wellbeing of our students is incredibly important to us. As a postgraduate student at Lincoln, you'll have access to a dedicated team of student wellbeing advisors, mental health advisors, and counsellors who can provide you with advice and guidance around disability, mental health, medical conditions, and learning differences.

As soon as you've enrolled, you can register with our on campus Health Centre, which offers appointments with both doctors and nurses. 

Health and Wellbeing at Lincoln

Cost of Living

The current cost of living is 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.

Support for International Students

If you are joining us from overseas, then you can take advantage of our dedicated International College, which provides advice and guidance on teaching and learning at the University of Lincoln.

As well as offering support sessions and workshops for developing your written and spoken English language skills, the International College can also help you to adapt to the academic culture in the UK and provide opportunities for you to meet and socialise with students from around the world.

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities and experiences where Master's and PhD students were able to come together to participate in workshops and discussions no matter what research area each individual was exploring.
