Opening Up Degree Level Study
At Lincoln we understand that our applicants often have a wide range of qualifications and experience. To help them progress into higher education and achieve their goals, we offer a number of different entry routes to degree level study.
Arts Foundation Year
The Arts Foundation Year at Lincoln is the first year of an integrated four-year degree programme which provides an alternative entry route on to a wide range of degree courses within the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, including Animation and Visual Effects; Architecture; Creative Advertising; Fine Art; Graphic Design; Illustration; Interior Architecture and Design; Photography; and Product Design.
This programme of study adopts a dynamic interdisciplinary approach to learning, where all students follow the same curriculum and studying alongside one another, regardless of their degree specialism. It has been designed to enable students who perhaps need more time to adjust to degree-level study, are not sure which subject they want to pursue, achieved lower than expected grades, or are returning to education.
Science Foundation Year
Our Science Foundation Year aims to prepare students for degree-level study, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in science, healthcare, or engineering related subjects. The course is designed to open up an exciting world of opportunities within these disciplines for students who do not meet our standard entry requirements.
The course provides an alternative integrated entry route onto a wide range of degree-level programmes in the College of Health and Science in the areas of Chemistry, Computer Science and Robotics, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics, Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science. Students study a combination of core and subject specific modules as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year.
