Welcome to The Lincoln School of Design

The Lincoln School of Design is a creative and innovative community of designers, thinkers, makers and entrepreneurs working to meet the design challenges of 21st Century society.

The School aims to provide an environment where each student can develop their own design identity, and subsequently forge a successful career in the path that they have chosen. Our students and graduates can become significant practitioners, establishing new businesses, developing new products and becoming influential contributors to the creative industries, both nationally and internationally. They win significant awards, such as RSA and D&AD, and also regularly rank our courses as some of the best in the UK.

The Lincoln School of Design is based in a purpose-built building on the Brayford Pool Campus with specialist studios, labs and workshops, which provide a comprehensive resource within which to develop your design practice. This is complemented by the wider resources of the University including an award-winning† library and a range of practical support for students’ learning development.

We are committed to supporting and encouraging you on your creative journey. Our links with industry, both within the city of Lincoln and further afield, open up opportunities to work with external partners on real-world projects. Study visits and a series of lectures by visiting experts are designed to give a valuable insight into careers in design and the creative industries.

You can discover more about the Lincoln School of Design by meeting our students and staff. We look forward to welcoming you to an Open Day or degree show where you can experience our School and facilities for yourself.
