Applying to Lincoln

Choosing Your Degree

What you decide to study at university depends on what subjects you enjoy and any future career aspirations you may have. Most students will choose to study for what is known as a BA or BSc, which is a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, but you will also see that there are other undergraduate degree qualification titles, such as BEng (Bachelor of Engineering), LLB (Bachelor of Laws), and BM (Bachelor of Medicine). These relate to the subject area being studied.

Our courses typically take three years to complete full-time, although some do offer opportunities to study abroad for a year or take a work placement in industry, adding an additional year to the programme. We also offer integrated Master’s programmes in some subject areas, such as MEng, MPhys, and MBio, which take four years to complete and lead to a higher-level qualification.

Checking Important Information

It’s important that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision on what you want to study. This includes typical contact hours, a comprehensive list of core and optional modules, details of fees and any additional costs you may incur, modes of delivery, and a breakdown of assessment methods. All of this information is available on the course pages of our website.
