Visiting Lincoln

For those students interested in studying for their degree at the University of Lincoln, or for those who would like to know more about routes in Higher Education in general, the best way to discover more is to visit our campus and spend some time with us.

We offer a number of different types of opportunities for your students to see what we do here, all of which allow them to meet with current undergraduates, find out about student life, see what courses we offer, speak with academics, explore our campus and discover more about Lincoln.

Open Days

University of Lincoln open days are a chance for students to explore all the University and the City of Lincoln has to offer. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet our staff and students, tour our state-of-the-art facilities and campus and see this world famous city.

We hold at least two open days mid-week per year, which are always popular with schools and colleges. If you would like to book your students onto one of our open days please complete our online open days booking form


Academic Taster Days

Subject taster days are interactive and are aimed at Year 12/13 students that wish to visit a specific department. They are delivered by academic staff with teaching expertise in that area, so students are invariably taught by lecturers they would meet if they studied for their degree at Lincoln.


Campus Visits (General Taster Days)

For students interested in studying their degree at the University of Lincoln, or for those who would like to know more about routes in Higher Education in general, the best way to discover more is to visit our campus and spend some time with us.

We are happy to accommodate for more general University visits for students. Usually, visits last between 4-5 hours and we always work with current undergraduates on our campus visits so your students get to meet and question our current students throughout the day. All visits include a campus tour and you can either select one or more of the presentations we offer or ask for one of the following:

Lincoln Masterclass Programme

For students capable of higher level academic engagement, our prestigious programme of Lincoln Master Classes will be of interest. Led by specialist academics in their respective fields, the Master Classes are pitched at first year, undergraduate level and encourage enhanced levels of discussion, interaction and exchange to stimulate university-style learning. They are intended to enrich the school curriculum for high achieving students in Year 12/13, and to facilitate transitional learning between school and university.

Our Master Class programme runs throughout the academic year, with several different academic sessions running on each master class day.

Fast Forward Days

Fast Forward days form part of our outreach programme and are designed to shape younger students’ aspirations, improve their grades and increase their prospect of a higher education. The day provides a taster of both our transferrable skills and study skills sessions (see below) and aims to introduce students to new learning tools with which to help them with their studies.

In addition to the skills workshops, students have the opportunity to spend time with current undergraduates, explore the campus and get a feel for what life is like at university. For many, this will be their first experience of higher education, and we want them to leave with a desire to come back.

Study Skills Day

These days are aimed at post-16 students who would benefit from an interactive and informative day that covers a variety of study skills methods. Study Skills days are the perfect way for students to prepare for exams and assignments, and equip them with useful skills, hints and tips with which to approach the rest of their time spent in the classroom.

If you would like to discuss bringing a group or groups of students to our Fast Forward Days, or would like more information about what's on the programme, please fill out the online booking form.

Transferrable Skills Day

Aimed at post-16 students, the object of these days is to educate young people about the additional life and employability skills they will develop at University.

Transferrable skills days are hands-on and aim to prepare students for their UCAS application.
