    Hi Rebecca,

    Im currently in my first year at Lincoln and personally think the university is amazing! Im studying BioVeterinary Science with a Science foundation year which so far I have enjoyed.

    The city is a beautiful place, the town centre is about 5/10 minute walk from the main campus of the university and is relatively big with all the main high street shops. The nightlife is really good too, with the nightclubs being a 10 minute walk from the Lincoln Courts accommodation (which is where i am living). There is also the Engine Shed on the university grounds opposite the library which puts on themed nights through the year, Quack being the most popular on a Wednesday nights.

    If you would like to know any specific things about the university feel free to message me!

    Hi, im glad you're enjoying your course!
    I've heard a lot of great things about the uni, and I've watched a couple campus tours on YouTube. I've gathered that most of the subjects are on one main campus in different buildings. Do you know if biovet is in the building with all the other sciences/where it would be mainly based? I know I'll probably find this out when I visit but still
    Also I'm curious about what you do in the science foundation year that's different to the other three years of biovet?
    (Lots of questions sorry 😊)

    Hi,

    As you said where you study the subject depends on what course you are taking. I believe biovet is based in the science building, the Joseph Banks Laboratories for your lab work and the Minister house.

    For the Science Foundation year, it is basically for people who don't have much experience in science/math subjects or don't meet the entry requirements. It is an introduction to degree level study and ensures a smooth transition into our first year of degree level that we have chosen. I personally think its helpfully as I didn't quite meet the requirements and its given me the opportunity to work on my weaknesses within science as well as learn new things in maths. It's helpful in providing how to successfully write essays etc, and even though I've done the basis of the subjects I enjoy it as it has allowed me to make new friends I wouldn't have necessarily made if I went straight into biovet.

    Anymore questions you have don't hesitate to ask!

    I've got an unconditional offer for BioVet if I make it my first choice! I've booked my offer day on the 2nd, what about you?

    I've been been to the RVC summer school so hopefully I'll get a conditional there

    I assumed they'd send the information today so I can plan the journey, maybe we'll get it today or tomorrow?

    Hi all!

    I'm a 3rd year undergrad Biovet at Lincoln. I would 10/10 recommend this university and course. There is so much support and lecturers are really accessible. They take student feedback quite seriously and I feel that many improvements have been made to the course over the 3 years that I've been here. All your lectures will be on the main campus in various buildings, and your practicals will be held in the science building. You won't spend much time in Joeseph Banks labs until 3rd year, if you're doing a dissertation based there.
    Hopefully they've given you your information about the applicant day by now. You' probably need to register in the Minerva Building when you first get there, which is a massive building on the side of campus next to the Brayford quay. You'll see when you get here that the train tracks run straight through the middle of campus, but there's a few points where you can cross, and they actually help you orient yourself when you haven't been here before. I hope you have a good time and definitely make use of the staff and students who'll be there on the day!
    Good luck in your applications!

    (A bit late I know) but how did you like the open day at the weekend? I definitely didn't expect to be cutting up fish but here we are.
    I loved the campus especially how close together everything is. There's a Primark and an Odeon within 5 minutes what more could I ask for haha

    Also what's RVC like? I haven't been yet.
