Moving Forward with Your Studies
At Lincoln, we understand that the transition to undergraduate study can feel like a big step. That's why we offer all of our students an extensive range of learning-focussed resources to help you make this adjustment as smoothly as possible.
Once you begin your studies at university, you will notice the way you learn can be quite different from your experience of learning at college or sixth form. Teaching and learning is delivered in a variety of methods such as lectures from leading academics, seminar discussions with your peers, one-to-one time with your tutor, opportunities to work with academics on real research projects, hands-on practical workshops, and extracurricular skills development programmes.
You can use this page to explore our study-enhancing topics, tips, and help available at Lincoln to make the most of your studies.

Engage in Research
Students may have the opportunity to work alongside experienced academics on research that can make a tangible difference to society.

This initiative gives students the chance to work with an academic on a funded research project over the summer.
