    Thanks Georgia!! This has been really useful! I'm really interested in going into publishing after my English Lit degree, or doing an MA. Do you have any links with publishing companies where I could do some work experience whilst at uni?
    There's a really great careers service at the Uni that would do everything they can to help you get the work experience you need. They run drop in centres and courses all week. They also do something called The Lincoln Award which will give you lots of training and skills that will be useful when looking for a job. I did mine during my graduate internship when I finished my course and it really helped when I applied for the job of Social Media Officer here.

    Every year the English Department hold Alumni talks where students are given the opportunity to talk to graduates who have gone on to all different kinds of career paths including publishing and postgraduate study. These are especially informative and will give you a chance to network with people within the industry.

    I found the Journalism department was incredibly supportive when I did work experience and understood that I would need to miss a few lectures and seminars. I'm sure the English Department would be just the same!

    Hope this helps

    What are the prospects like for the TV and Film course? What sort of jobs do graduates go on to do with a degree in TV and Film? and Finally, is Lincoln a quiet and peaceful place?
    Hi there!

    You'd be surprised at how many success stories our Film and TV and Media Production courses actually have! Especially for such a competitive industry. For instance did you know TomSka and Jack Howard are both Lincoln graduates? There's also Daniel Bowring who's an adventure cameraman shooting all over the world. In the past year he's worked with Bear Grylls and Freddie Flintoff when he was in the Amazon! We also have graduates working for Universal Pictures, Channel 4 and the BBC! (Can you tell I worked with the Alumni Team for a bit? ha ha)

    Is Lincoln quiet and peaceful? It all depends where you go! If you venture onto the High Street on a Saturday night— No. If you take a stroll up to the Cathedral and Castle—Yes! Lincoln's one of those cities that is big enough to have a lot going on so you don't get bored, but is also small enough that you always feel safe walking around.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,
    I was offered a conditional place on the English course at Lincoln next year yesterday so I have a few questions.
    1) I'm a young mature student (I'm 32 although I have a young outlook on life) and I'm looking at living in accommodation. Is it a lottery with regards to which age groups end up living together?
    2) What is the LGBT scene like within the Uni.
    3) What are your overall impressions of the Uni?

    Thankyou,
    Emma x

    Hi, I'm a first year law student, the LGBT scene in the uni itself is pretty good. There is an LGBT society. Outside the uni though, its what you would expect in a town like this. There is one club in terms of nightlife but most LGBT don't go there they filter into the citys clubs inner city. There are a lot of LGBT.
    In terms of the overall outlook of the uni and Lincoln it is a very pleasant town. Its very pleasant, the city centre is very nice.
    One criticism though is that the city is a bit cut off if you don't have a car. If you want to get anywhere then you're gona hav to get a train to Sheffield or Nottingham first.

    I do drive and that leads onto another question. What is the car parking situation like with the accommodation?

    Pretty much non-existent. You can't park at the uni owned accommodation overnight unless you have a good reason (e.g disability), and you can't at most of the privately owned ones either.

    Everyone I know who has a car in Lincoln lives in a house, and even then they have to pay for a permit first. Although saying that by about march last year a couple of my mates had managed to get hold of permits to park at the uni accom for various reasons

    Hi. If you put a good spread of choices it can be quite likely. Always a turnaround of applications so often a range of choices become available

    Hi there!

    First off, congratulations on your unconditional offer!
    Where you stay all depends on your budget/tastes etc. I had loads of friends who stayed in the Student Village in their first year and I never heard them complain at all! There's a real sense of community there and everyone was really tight knit.

    I wouldn't worry too much about accommodation though because although they take your choice into consideration, sometimes the accommodation team have to place people in their second or third choice due to the level of requests. All the accommodation is quite similar and all within walking distance of campus.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Holly,
    I would definitely say both the Pavilions and the Junxion are just as nice and they both have the added bonus of a 32" TV with a free TV licence in the common area

    Hope this helps.

    hello, im starting my a-levels next year. I know the website says for zoology course you need 300 ucas points (including 80 in biology), will i get on the course without any other sciences then? I have put down Biology, French, history and chemistry as my options, but am thinking of swapping chemistry for something like geography because i find chemistry so so hard and its a big jump frmo gcse level to alevel (at my school i need an A at gcse to get onto the alevel course because its a reallt hard course). so yeah will i be okay with only biology as a science? or will other people who have other sciences get in and will i get rejected??? thanks!

    Hi, this might sound a bit weird but do you have a local market? Or a bakery nearby to student accommodation?
