From Small Seeds, Mighty Trees Will Grow

The University of Lincoln has pledged to plant one new tree for every postgraduate study application submitted at a Postgraduate Open Day.

The pledge comes as part of the University's work to help raise awareness of the current climate emergency and to make a positive impact on this global challenge. The new trees will be planted on our Riseholme Campus – the centre for our extensive agricultural and forestry research. Lincoln is ranked in the top 200 institutions worldwide for its teaching and research in these areas, and scientists at Riseholme are undertaking pioneering studies in sustainable energy and in agroforestry, looking at the benefits of woodland to landowners and farmers alike. 

Our Postgraduate Open Days take place in person at our beautiful Brayford Pool Campus and they give prospective students the chance to learn more about postgraduate study at the University of Lincoln, as well as hearing from key services like our Student Support Centre, Admissions Team, and Careers and Employability Centre. 

All students making applications at a Postgraduate Open Day can also be considered for the Environmental Scholarship application form of £3,000 to support their postgraduate studies. The scholarship is open to all subject areas, with applicants being asked to state how their postgraduate study will help them personally to make an impact on the climate emergency.
