Student Finance (UK)

If you are a UK student, you can access a loan from the UK government for your full course fees, regardless of your household income, and do not need to pay anything upfront. You may also apply for funding towards living costs, with lower-income households eligible to access additional maintenance support.

The Careers Service offers helpful advice, internship opportunities and support to help students and alumni from all degree programmes develop their skills for entering the job market and progress their career.

College Bursaries

Over a third of Lincoln students receive a means-tested bursary during their studies. The average amount is £2,200 a year on top of the support given by the University. Bursaries are allocated discreetly and by need. Students do not need to apply for a College bursary.

Welfare and Faith

The College takes accommodating students' religious needs seriously. We have a newly-refurbished multi-faith prayer space located centrally within the College, and cater for Kosher and Halal diets. First year students are also offered ensuite accommodation.
